I'm sorry, but I never liked the Bruins.
This is from a competitive standpoint, not personal.
Keep in mind, Buffalo and Boston have been in the same division since day one. As a Sabre fan, you have to find a rival, and the Bruins were that.
Only time Sabres EVER beat them was "Mayday! Mayday!" in 1993.
IMO, Bruins playoff dissapointments don't crack the top 10 or top 20 of Boston sports disappointments/heartbreaks.
How many teams can you name who had seemingly won a playoff game only to have the officials say that they had too many players on the ice and then proceeded to give up ye tying goal on a power play and then lost the game (and series in overtime?
How many teams wound up having one of their home playoff games completed on the road on the road because of a blown fuse?
The Bruins may not have had a moment like Buckner in 86 or Aparicio in 72 but they have had a few mishaps. And those two moments have to crack the top 10.
