Boston survived its thrilling back-and-forth series with Tampa Bay when it ended Lightning goalie Dwayne Roloson's perfect run in elimination games with a 1-0 victory in Game 7. After dropping Game 1, the Bruins won two straight and took a three-goal lead in Game 4, but the Lightning scored five unanswered goals in what could have been a momentum-turning victory. Boston overcame that loss to take Game 5 and move within one win of the Cup final. After a 5-4 defeat in Game 6, the Bruins returned home where behind Tim Thomas' second shutout of the series and Nathan Horton's goal with 7:33 left in the third period advanced them to their first Stanley Cup Final since 1990.
