NBC analyst Pierre McGuire was a guest on The Big Show on Thursday and he noted that as the Bruins were inching closer toward capturing the Stanley Cup on Wednesday night in Vancouver, there was a major difference between the two benches. "There were definitely chemistry issues on one bench," McGuire said. "Coaches overreacting. I thought in the case of Alain Vingeault when the frustration set in, and the composure and the focus and basically every one of the Bruins players acting as coach. It was really an interesting dynamic to witness."
He added, "When you have a knockout game and things start to go south in a hurry, guys just deviate from the plan and you could sense that. You didn't see the same Vancouver Canucks team in the third period that you saw in Games 1 or 2 or Game 5 when they were in Vancouver."

NESN hockey analyst Andy Brickley talked to the Mut & Merloni show Thursday night following the Bruins big 4-0 victory in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals. A former Bruins player himself, Brickley discussed what the Cup's return to Boston meant to him.
"We spent a lot of postgame in the locker room with the players. Although we weren't on the ice, we still felt like we were a part of it because we've covered the team game in and game out," he said. "Yeah, it's been a long time coming, you know? Had a chance to win in '90 and couldn't do it as a player. Certainly grew up in the Boston area and know what 1970 and 1972 mean to Bruins fans. Nice to be a part of it and absorb it and take it all in. What an experience it was as an observer."
The NESN and Versus color commentator also discussed why he thinks this particular group of Bruins was able to do the job that several before them had failed to do.
