Tyler Seguin had electrified Boston fans and sparked the Bruins to victory in Game 2 of the 2011 Eastern Conference finals. As the series shifted to Tampa Bay, however, it would be Tim Thomas and the Bruins defense who would take control of Game 3.
After a dramatic 6-5 win over the Lightning in Game 2, the Bruins appeared to be on their way to another barn-burner after a quick-strike goal from David Krejci seconds into the game. Both teams settled down from that point on, though, and the B’s turned to their Vezina winner to make enough plays to keep them on the path towards a Stanley Cup Final berth.
