  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Final Score
      Boston 4 Vancouver 0
      Boston wins Stanley Cup 4-3

    • The victory improved the Boston Bruins' franchise record in Stanley Cup Finals to 6-12.
      The loss dropped the Vancouver Canucks' franchise record in Stanley Cup Finals to 0-3.

    • Boston Bruins Goaltender Tim Thomas won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the Most Valuable Player in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

      At the age of 37 years 2 months, Thomas becomes the oldest Conn Smythe Trophy winner in history. He is also only the second American-born player to win the award following New York Rangers defenseman Brian Leetch, who won in 1994 when his Rangers also defeated Vancouver in a seven-game final.

    • The eight goals scored by the Vancouver Canucks set a record for the fewest goals scored by one team in a seven-game Finals.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Boston Coach Claude Julien: If [the Canucks] are honest, they are going to tell you the same thing. When you're fighting for a Stanley Cup if you like each other, it's not a good sign. Hating is one word, but never forget the word respect. That's the one thing you have to do. I respect that team immensely because they dominated the whole league this year. I know they're banged up. You make your breaks. As far as I'm concerned it was our time and we took advantage of it.
      Boston Coach Claude Julien: What I admire the most is our guys really stayed the course in what we were trying to do. It didn't really matter to me what was being said on the outside. If the guys in the dressing don't believe in what you're doing, now you've got an issue. From the outside it's not an issue at all. It's part of coaching.

    • Vancouver Coach Alain Vigneault: Boston played a real strong game. They got great goaltending and they were able to score a couple of tough goals around our net. They deserved to win.

      Vancouver Coach Alain Vigneault: Their goaltender was real tough to beat. The way they played in front of him was real tough to beat. We had some Grade A chances, and we were unable to score.

      Vancouver Coach Alain Vigneault: Anybody in our situation right now would feel real disappointed, whether you're the favorite or not. We battled real hard. We gave it our best shot. This one game, they were the better team. It's that simple.

    • Boston Goaltender and Conn Smythe Trophy winner Tim Thomas: I think I went even further than I thought. I never envisioned three Game 7s in one playoff series and still being able to come out on top.

      Boston Goaltender and Conn Smythe Trophy winner Tim Thomas: All the physical work we'd done throughout the whole series added up. Being the last series, we didn't save anything, and we used that physicality again and that was the difference.
