08:19 AM ET 06.16 | Ryan Kesler wasn't admitting to anything, but the Canucks were hurting. Alex Edler admitted he played with two broken fingers. Christian Ehrhoff admitted that he had to get a troublesome shoulder shot up and it will need addressing in the offseason. ... Jeff Tambellini was summoned to join Kesler on the second line of the Stanley Cup finale in place of the injured Mason Raymond. He has been around the team long enough to appreciate the center's drive. But being shot up and playing and then enduring the pain when those shots wore off? "I think every stride hurt him," said Tambellini. "He never showed it. He never talked about it. We never heard about it all day and this guy is a true warrior. The fact he even came back is mind-blowing."

Yeah, and the Bruins looked like the perfect picture of health. If you make it this far, most of your players will play with something or some things hurting. You could tell watching the interviews taking place on the ice after the game that just about every Bruin looked elated and exhausted. The guys on both team will feel pain for days if not weeks. Boston's players will just get over it smiling.

Really glad for guys like Bergeron and Recchi. Good on you, fellas.

Congrats Bruins! Now we get to hear the excuses and the persistent whining from the Vancouver camp.

Game seven will just reconfirm Don Cherry's xenophobia...not counting captain Chara, etc.

As if we needed that reconfirmation...

ESPN actually showed what he wore yesterday on their highlight reel of the game. I think my grandma had pants with that pattern on them.

Tough to win Lord Stanley when you only score 8 goals in 7 games...

Can't believe I was actually pulling for the B's to win...Must have been some lunar event taking place last night.

Thomas was unreal (and just about the ONLY reason that the Bees won even one round) - but frankly, the whole rest of the playoff season achieved a new all-time low, over-all.

Thomas > Luongo

Luongo shoulda been the runner up for mvp (for boston) made the series alot less tight than it shoulda been. whadda ya want though, the better team won.

Boston got better with every series, which is more than we can say for Vancouver.
