The Bruins have won both games 3 and 4 at home in Boston to bring their lead in the series up to 3 games to 1.
On Monday night, the Bruins defended their home ice in Boston to narrowly defeat the Buffalo Sabres 2-1. Mike Grier scored first for the Sabres early in the first period, but the lead was soon erased by the Bruins' Dennis Wideman who scored 8 minutes later. The scoreless second period was nothing but great defense from both sides and the goalies, Rask and Miller. Then, in the 12th minute of the 3rd period, Patrice Bergeron came through strong and got a goal for Boston. Here are the highlights for Wideman's and Bergeron's game winning goals:
Tonight the Bruins were victorious once again, defeating the Sabres 3-2 and taking a 3 games to 1 advantage in the series. This game was so exciting that it could only have happened during playoffs. The Sabres were up 2-0 by the beginning of the 3rd period thanks to a goal by Kennedy in the first period and a goal by Montador in the second. However, an exciting rally by the Bruins led to an early goal by David Krejci and another one midway through the third period by Patrice Bergeron to tie the game at 2 a piece and send it into overtime. Finally, in the second overtime, Miroslav Satan scored the golden goal that won it for Boston and sent the crowd at the Garden into an uproar. Here is the exciting footage from his winning shot:
