In 2004 the top-seeded Bruins fell to the barely-there Canadiens in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Saku Koivu came back from cancer just in time to spear Boston’s title hopes and lift the entire city of Montreal on his broad back. Four years later, the roles have been reversed.
Patrice Bergeron = Saku Koivu.
The Bruins = 2004 Canadiens, The Canadiens = 2004 Bruins.
Claude Julien is on the other side.
It’s all eerily similar, except this time the favorite wins. In 5 or 6 games.
