Bruins top 10 games of 2013: Playoffs No. 1

Last week, Bruins Daily took a look at some of the best Bruins games of the 2013 regular season. This week, we will focus on the top five games of the 2013 playoffs.

Today we take a look at the Bruins’ best playoff game of 2013.

“The comeback” Boston Bruins vs. Toronto Maple Leafs Game 7:

Greatest comeback in Bruins history? I’d say so.

As much turnover as the Bruins roster has had this summer, its safe to assume that there would have been further questions had they fallen to their Northeast Division rivals. After all, they were 10-plus minutes away from blowing a 3-1 series lead.

But as Claude Julien’s job was once again on the line, the Bruins responded. Nathan Horton pulled the B’s within two shortly after the Leafs took a three-goal lead, but it wouldn’t be until the last minute where the magic happened. Milan Lucic would make things interesting in the final minute, and then captain clutch, Patrice Bergeron, delivered the two most important goals of the Bruins’ season; the tying and game-winning goals.

“That was unbelievable,” defenseman Johnny Boychuk said. “That’s one thing you’re going to remember for the rest of your life, because it was such a great comeback that everybody probably thought we were done and it showed what kind of character we had in this dressing room. Never say die more or less.”

What a difference a come from behind victory can make.

The Bruins would appear in their second Stanley Cup Final in three years. And while some of the members of this team, like Horton, Tyler Seguin, Jaromir Jagr and Andrew Ference, will be donning new uniforms for the 2013-14 season, this victory kept the core together, including Julien, for the foreseeable future.

Here are the game highlights.

Oh, and before we forget, here is Jack Edwards’ celebration.
