NHL Stanley Cup Finals 2013 guaranteed riveting game one opening encounter in a mammoth best of seven series stand-off hails from TD Banknorth Garden in Boston, MA before a staggering sold-out 18,000 capacity crowd live on their feet live tonight in holy grail of the ice hockey season, as Boston Bruins (28-14) host Chicago Blackhawks (36-7).

Boston Bruins long and winding road to return to the NHL Stanley Cup Finals came via a commanding NHL Eastern Conference Final route against Pittsburgh Penguins (36-12); Bruins claimed the NHL Eastern conference series in a rampant 4-0 sweep.

The Boston Bruins hoisted the Stanley Cup in 2011 for a record-setting sixth occassion in franchise history, afteroutplaying Vancouver Canucks in a triumphantly fairy-tale 4-3 instant classic series for the ages. The monumental win signified the Bruins first NHL Stanley cup win in four decades; the Bruins secured the championship in 1971-72 NHL season prior to the 2011 title, inspired by the vintage play of NHL Hall of Famers: Bobby Orr and Phil Esposito.

“The excitement is there. You’ve heard people say, ‘Once you’ve been there, you want to go back.’ It’s true, we really want to go back; we made it happen. We’re excited about it and we also know what kind of challenge lies ahead for us. It’s about acknowledging that and being ready for it.” commented Bruins Head Coach, Claude Julien.
