Yesterday’s Playoff Game

  • It took only one goal, but that was enough for the Boston Bruins to sweep the Pittsburgh Penguins and advance to the Stanley Cup Finals. Adam McQuaid scored the lone goal for the Bruins in the third period with assists going to Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron. Tuukka Rask played well all series and earned 26 saves in the win. Tomas Vokoun made 24. Goal scoring was a problem for the Pens the whole series, who only scored twice in the four-game series. Former-Cane Brandon Sutter scored one of the goals in Game Two. Jussi Jokinen played in two games. Craig Adams played in all four and both were held pointless. Dennis Seidenberg was also held pointless for the Bruins.
