For the first time in 21 years the Boston Bruins punched a ticket to the Stanley Cup finals with a late goal from Nathan Horton on a beautiful feed from David Krejci. The city of Boston was in an uproar. Fans coming together as one chanting "WE WANT THE CUP, WE WANT THE CUP" at North Station last night. The Bruins have finally rewarded its fans after a long wait, but do not sleep on this team. This team has fought all year and just because Vegas has the team as a 2-1 underdog to the lethal Vancouver Canucks, does not mean the B's can't hoist the trophy. Timmy Thomas is unbeaten versus the Canucks and defeated them 3-1 earlier in February. The Hub has Stanley Cup fever and it finally feels good to be watching hockey heading into June. The Boston Bruins are back. Another person who deserves all the credit in the world is Big Z. He has been a monster on the defensive end shutting down the elite scorers in the NHL. Big Z has been playing almost 25 minutes a game. The Bruins do not get where they are this year without the big guy.

The Red Sox are finally a top the standings. Carl Crawford is earning his pay check and everything is starting to click for the Nation. The Sox have scored 34 runs in their past three games while getting quality pitching from spot starters Tim Wakefield and Acedo Aceves. The Sox are 27-12 since their brutal 2-10 start. Red Sox Nation can finally breathe again because the team is on a roll. They are 12-2 in their last 14 games and have won four straight. The Yankees are getting older while the Red Sox are getting younger. The Yanks will be there until the end, but the Sox should hold the spot a top the AL East until the end of the season.
