<ul><li><p>CHAMPIONSHIP RING</p><p>THE STORY OF 2011 STANLEY CUP</p><p>BOSTON BRUINS</p></li><li><p>The 2011 Stanley Cup Final, commonly known as the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals, was the </p><p>championship series of the National Hockey League (NHL) 201011 season, and the </p><p>culmination of the 2011 Stanley Cup playoffs. It was the 118th year of the Stanley Cup's </p><p>presentation. The Eastern Conference champion Boston Bruins defeated the Western </p><p>Conference champion Vancouver Canucks four games to three. The Bruins ended a </p><p>39-year Stanley Cup drought with the win. Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas was awarded </p><p>the Conn Smythe Trophy as the Most Valuable Player of the playoffs.</p><p>www.championshipringclub.com</p><p>2011 STANLEY CUP</p><p>CHAMPIONSHIP RING</p><p>THE STORY OF </p><p>BRUINSBOSTON </p></li><li><p>The Canucks had home ice advantage in the Finals by virtue of winning the Presidents' </p><p>Trophy as the team that finished with the best regular season record (117 points). They </p><p>were also the first Canadian team to have home ice advantage in the Finals since the </p><p>Montreal Canadiens had it for the 1993 Stanley Cup Finals. The Canadiens' victory in </p><p>1993 was also the last time a Canadian team won the Stanley Cup. As of the 2014-15 </p><p>season, this was the last Stanley Cup Finals to feature a Canadian team.</p><p>www.championshipringclub.com</p><p>2011 STANLEY CUP</p><p>CHAMPIONSHIP RING</p><p>THE STORY OF </p><p>BRUINSBOSTON </p></li><li><p>On June 1, 2011 NHL commissioner Gary Bettman made an announcement that Colin </p><p>Campbell would be stepping down as the league's head disciplinarian to be replaced by </p><p>former player Brendan Shanahan, though Campbell would continue in his job as </p><p>director of hockey operations. Mike Murphy, the NHL vice-president of hockey </p><p>operations, had already been put in charge of disciplinary matters for the Finals, </p><p>nonetheless there were concerns raised about Campbell's impartiality in handing out </p><p>discipline since his son Gregory was an active player on the Boston Bruins roster.</p><p>www.championshipringclub.com</p><p>2011 STANLEY CUP</p><p>CHAMPIONSHIP RING</p><p>THE STORY OF </p><p>BRUINSBOSTON </p></li><li><p>The first game of the series was held on June 1, while the seventh game was played on </p><p>June 15. The games varied widely between those played in Vancouver and those in </p><p>Boston. Prior to game seven, the Bruins had managed to score only two goals in three </p><p>games played in Vancouver, against 17 scored in three games at Boston. On the other </p><p>hand, while posting two shutouts in Vancouver, Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo </p><p>was replaced with the backup Cory Schneider twice in three games in Boston. It was </p><p>the fourth consecutive Stanley Cup Final in which the deciding game was won by the </p><p>road team.</p><p>www.championshipringclub.com</p><p>2011 STANLEY CUP</p><p>CHAMPIONSHIP RING</p><p>THE STORY OF </p><p>BRUINSBOSTON </p></li><li><p>The Bruins scored almost three times the number of total goals as the Canucks, (23 to </p><p>8 in the series), and yet the Canucks won three games. The eight goals scored by </p><p>Vancouver is the lowest number of goals scored by any team in a seven-game Stanley </p><p>Cup Final, and would've also been the lowest in a six-game series. The Canucks </p><p>averaged 1.25 goals per game at home in Vancouver and one goal per game on the </p><p>road, while the Bruins averaged almost six goals per game at home in Boston and 1.5 </p><p>goals per game on the road. In the seven games, the Bruins averaged roughly 3.3 goals </p><p>per game, while the Canucks averaged 1.14 goals per game.</p><p>www.championshipringclub.com</p><p>2011 STANLEY CUP</p><p>CHAMPIONSHIP RING</p><p>THE STORY OF </p><p>BRUINSBOSTON </p></li><li><p> 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13</p></li></ul>
