Editor's note: NESN is counting down the top 50 moments of the Bruins' 2011 Stanley Cup season. Every day from Aug. 17 to Oct. 5, a memorable moment from the 2011 season will air on NESN Daily and be posted on NESN.com.
Roughly four months before the Bruins were skating off the Rogers Arena ice with the Stanley Cup, the B's were on the final leg of a cross-continent road trip. In something of a preview of what was to come, Boston played one of its best games against the Canucks on Feb. 26.
That night, the Bruins turned in an impressive 3-1 win over the eventual Presidents' Trophy winners behind a strong effort from Vancovuer native Milan Lucic. The forward scored a goal and added two assists to help the B's come away with the win.
