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!


And if you have the time, here’s the highlights of the whole game:


With 20 years of experience (SiriusXM NHL Network Radio, ESPNBoston, NESN,, etc.) covering the Bruins, the NHL, NCAA and junior hockey and more, Jimmy Murphy’s hockey black book is full of Hall of Famers, current players, coaches, management, scouts and a wide array of hockey media personalities that have lived in and around this great game. For 17 of his 20 years as a hockey and sports reporter, Murph covered the Bruins on essentially a daily basis covering their victorious 2011 Stanley Cup run and their 2013 run to the Final as well. Murphy has hosted national and local radio shows and podcasts and also has experience in TV as well.
