For those of you who were looking for a return to 2011, when the Bruins roared through the springtime en route to their first Stanley Cup championship in 39 years, we may have a not-so-pleasant change in plans for you.

As in a return to 2010, when the Bruins blew a 3-0 series lead against the Philadelphia Flyers and were bounced out of the Stanley Cup tournament.

Blowing a 3-1 series lead isn’t quite as bad as blowing a 3-0 series lead, but let’s not quibble. With their 2-1 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals last night at loud, packed, joyous Air Canada Centre, the Bruins are right back where they were in 2010: Fighting for their lives in Game 7 in a series that should already be over.

This one was scoreless through two periods, with the Leafs taking a 2-0 third-period lead on goals by Dion Phaneuf and a very, very happy Phil Kessel. (“Thank you, Kes-sel,” roared the ACC crowd, which was as much an extended digit to Bruins fans as a salute to Kessel.)

The B’s didn’t get on the board until Milan Lucic scored with under a minute left. So, they have scored exactly two goals in the last six periods, with only one by a forward.
