Bruins History

Six Years Ago Today: ‘The Comeback’ – “Bergeron! Bergeron! Bergeron!”



On May 13, 2013, the Boston Bruins staged one of the most epic comebacks in not only Bruins and NHL history, but in pro sports. The B’s came back on the Toronto Maple Leafs from down 4-1 late in the third period of Game 7 in the first round of the 2013 Stanley Cup playoffs. Patrice Bergeron scored the game-tying goal with 51 seconds left in regulation and then scored the overtime winner at 6:05 of the extra frame to advance the Bruins to the second round and instantly go down in Boston sports folklore.

Happy “Bergeron! Bergeron! Bergeron!” Day Bruins fans!
