Boston Bruins Heading To Eastern Conference Finals

Bruins Celebrate

Rask said he put up with increased pushing and shoving in the crease and kept Columbus from taking him out of his game.

The Bruins need to carry their momentum forward as they potentially collide into another gritty, hard series with another team that has a goaltender getting hot at the right time. Officials met, deciding whether the penalty merited more than a minor, but McAvoy only got two minutes for an illegal check to the head, much to the chagrin of those in Nationwide Arena. He finished with 26 saves.

The Bruins appeared to have a goal in the first period when Sean Kuraly netted the puck after an extended close-in attack on a power play, but it was overturned after a replay showed that Joakim Nordstrom had pushed Bobrovsky out of the crease.

BY THE NUMBERS: 10 - The number of goals that Sebastian Aho has scored in nine career games vs. the Bruins after getting another one on Thursday night.

Coach Rod Brind'Amour said Monday there were "no limitations" on his goalie and Mrazek said he felt "120%, to be honest". I don't think you get this far by accident. "He's been in a real good place, consistent, just solid and composed".

Columbus had chances to take the lead as well as Rask blocked away a 2-on-1 shot by Oliver Bjorkstrand and Dean Kukan drilled the crossbar on a nice feed from Scott Harrington, but Boston was the first to get on the board.

SEBIN agents had surrounded his vehicle outside the headquarters of his Democratic Action party in Caracas' La Florida district. The SEBIN used a tow truck to drag Mr Zambrano's vehicle away while he was still inside and then detained him.

"We are halfway to our goal", said forward David Backes, who scored Boston's final goal in the third period.

Columbus faces a daunting off-season.

The Blue Jackets' defeat sends Bobrovsky into free agency. "Next year, who knows what's going to happen, who's going to be in this locker room, so this one stings". Rask faced a total of 212 shots and now leads all goalies who have played at least three games this playoffs with an average 0.938 save percentage over 13 games played. Alexander Wennberg was a healthy scratch. However, it doesn't look like that will be the case and their 5v5 advantage could quickly be diminished if they can't slow down a Bruins top power-play unit that features Bergeron, Brad Marchand, David Pastrnak, Jake DeBrusk and Torey Krug, who have combined for seven power-play goals in the playoffs.

Steven Kampfer, starting for suspended defenseman Charlie McAvoy, also scored for Boston - his first career postseason goal - with about three minutes gone in the game.

Now that the eastern conference final is decided the predictions cone down to the "alleged" bunch of jerks or the team made up of jerks.
