Three top seeds are among the final eight in the bracket. The lone exception is in the North End region, where Dave Roberts' Game 4 steal goes up against Adam Vinatieri's 'Snow Bowl' kick.
Those No. 1 seeds should not expect an easy waltz into the next round, however. Ray Bourque's gesture of giving the No. 7 sweater to Phil Esposito has had a Cinderella run, and it could be in line for another huge upset against the Red Sox' 2004 World Series championship.
Two iconic moments from history face off in Beacon Hill, where Bobby Orr's flying goal to win the 1970 Stanley Cup and Carlton Fisk waving the ball fair in Game 6 of the 1975 World Series meet up. And two recent titles, the Patriots' Super Bowl XXXVI victory and the Bruins' 2011 Stanley Cup, collide in the Back Bay region.
