Boston winter teams are right in the think of the NBA and NHL Playoffs although they are entirely different positions. The Celtics are coming into form and are on the brink of knocking off the Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James who were favored to win the championship.
The Bruins, on the other hand, had a 3-0 lead against the Philadelphia Flyers but they have come all the way back to force a Game 7. Given the stain that was put on the Yankees for blowing a 3-0 lead against Boston in 2004, this could go down as the biggest choke in Boston sports history. For Philadelphia, it could be the city's second biggest sports victory behind the Phillies winning the 2008 World Series.
