- Nathan Horton scored his second overtime goal of the series to clinch game 7 and the series for the Bruins against the Canadiens. Horton became only the second player in Bruins history to score more than one overtime goal in a playoff series. Mel "Sudden Death" Hill scored three OT goals in Boston's 1939 semi-final against the New York Rangers. Hill is the only NHL player to ever to score three overtime goals in one playoff series.
- Mark Recchi also scored for the Bruins in that game, making him the oldest playing in NHL history to score in a game 7, surpassing Nicklas Lidstrom by approximately a full calendar year.
- Tampa Bay's 1-0 win over Pittsburgh in that series' game 7 marked the 6th time in NHL history that game 7 was won by a score of 1-0.

What a great series....To bad one of them had to lose. Congrats Bruins. The bigger demon is next series with Philly. Good luck. I had a blast chatting with knowledgeable Bruins fans, you know who they are, and foremost, hockey fans. Nail biter until the end. I will check up on this site from time to time....
