    THE STORY OF 2011 STANLEY CUP

    BOSTON BRUINS

  • The 2011 Stanley Cup Final, commonly known as the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals, was the

    championship series of the National Hockey League (NHL) 201011 season, and the

    culmination of the 2011 Stanley Cup playoffs. It was the 118th year of the Stanley Cup's

    presentation. The Eastern Conference champion Boston Bruins defeated the Western

    Conference champion Vancouver Canucks four games to three. The Bruins ended a

    39-year Stanley Cup drought with the win. Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas was awarded

    the Conn Smythe Trophy as the Most Valuable Player of the playoffs.

    THE STORY OF

    BRUINSBOSTON

  • The Canucks had home ice advantage in the Finals by virtue of winning the Presidents'

    Trophy as the team that finished with the best regular season record (117 points). They

    were also the first Canadian team to have home ice advantage in the Finals since the

    Montreal Canadiens had it for the 1993 Stanley Cup Finals. The Canadiens' victory in

    1993 was also the last time a Canadian team won the Stanley Cup. As of the 2014-15

    season, this was the last Stanley Cup Finals to feature a Canadian team.

    THE STORY OF

    BRUINSBOSTON

  • On June 1, 2011 NHL commissioner Gary Bettman made an announcement that Colin

    Campbell would be stepping down as the league's head disciplinarian to be replaced by

    former player Brendan Shanahan, though Campbell would continue in his job as

    director of hockey operations. Mike Murphy, the NHL vice-president of hockey

    operations, had already been put in charge of disciplinary matters for the Finals,

    nonetheless there were concerns raised about Campbell's impartiality in handing out

    discipline since his son Gregory was an active player on the Boston Bruins roster.

    THE STORY OF

    BRUINSBOSTON

  • The first game of the series was held on June 1, while the seventh game was played on

    June 15. The games varied widely between those played in Vancouver and those in

    Boston. Prior to game seven, the Bruins had managed to score only two goals in three

    games played in Vancouver, against 17 scored in three games at Boston. On the other

    hand, while posting two shutouts in Vancouver, Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo

    was replaced with the backup Cory Schneider twice in three games in Boston. It was

    the fourth consecutive Stanley Cup Final in which the deciding game was won by the

    road team.

    THE STORY OF

    BRUINSBOSTON

  • The Bruins scored almost three times the number of total goals as the Canucks, (23 to

    8 in the series), and yet the Canucks won three games. The eight goals scored by

    Vancouver is the lowest number of goals scored by any team in a seven-game Stanley

    Cup Final, and would've also been the lowest in a six-game series. The Canucks

    averaged 1.25 goals per game at home in Vancouver and one goal per game on the

    road, while the Bruins averaged almost six goals per game at home in Boston and 1.5

    goals per game on the road. In the seven games, the Bruins averaged roughly 3.3 goals

    per game, while the Canucks averaged 1.14 goals per game.
