Relive the Moment When the Bruins Won It All!

After thirty-nine torturous, winless years, the Bruins finally returned home with their prize - but bringing the Stanley Cup back to Boston was no easy feat.

The heated series, arguably the scrappiest in play off history, took a toll on the Black and Gold and their fans. Brutal hits and at-the-buzzer losses were enough to wane anyone's faith. Fans couldn't help but cringe as they watched their favorite team repeat their history of nightmarish defeats. 2011 was not going to be the year for them.

Yet, the Bruins somehow pulled through, winning four out of the last five playoff games including a thrilling shut-out in Game 7. Not only did the Bruins fulfill their incredible wish, but they also won recognition as the only NHL team to ever win three games en route to the Stanley Cup.

Bruin Redemption captures every moment of the Bruins' journey toward victory. With an in-depth background of the team's struggles and thrilling snapshots of the games leading up to the big win, readers will want to relive this unforgettable ride again and again.

About the author (2011)

Alan Hahn is an award-winning sports writer for Newsday, who covered the National Hockey League for seven seasons, which included three Stanley Cup Finals appearances by the New Jersey Devils, the passing of the torch from Wayne Gretzky to Jaromir Jagr to Sidney Crosby, and the 2004-05 lockout. Hahn's experience also brought him to meet Bruins captain Zdeno Chara and Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo as youngsters toiling with the New York Islanders before they grew into stars. His coverage of the 1999-2000 NHL season earned him Newsday's prestigious Publisher's Award for Sports Writing. He has also garnered several Press Club of Long Island awards throughout his career. Hahn's coverage for Newsday expanded to the NBA and the New York Knicks in 2006, but he has remained an avid hockey scribe and has occasionally written articles for The Hockey News and USA Hockey Magazine, and has been a guest on MSG Network's popular show, Hockey Night Live. He has authored two hockey books, Fish Sticks: The Fall and Rise of the New York Islanders and Birth of a Dynasty: The 1980 New York Islanders. The 40-year-old Hahn lives in Long Island, New York, with his wife and three children.
