The Bruins have finally wrapped up their Quarterfinal series with the Sabres and are moving on to face the Philadelphia Flyers in the conference Semifinals.
Their first attempt at knocking out the Sabres was unsuccessful on Friday with a 4-1 loss against Buffalo. The Sabres took the lead quickly with first period goals from both Adam Mair and Jason Pominville. To make matters worse, Buffalo's Mike Grier tacked on another goal in the second period, while Boston remained shut out. Some hope came for Boston in the third period when Johnny Boychuk scored, but this was quickly erased less than a minute later with a goal by Tyler Ennis for the Sabres. A fight even broke out with mere seconds left in the game, but no players were suspended. Watch the highlights here.
Tonight, however, game 6 came back to Boston and the Bruins were able to win the series once and for all with a 4-3 win against Buffalo. David Krejci was a huge asset for Boston, scoring his first goal in the first period and again later in the third period. Mark Recchi helped out with a goal in the 2nd period, and Miroslav Satan scored the final goal for the Bruins in the third. Kaleta scored for the Sabres in the second period, and Gerbe and Vanek tried to rally for a comeback with their two goals in the third period. They came up short because of the Bruins' goalie and hero of the game, Tuukka Rask, who made of total of 27 saves throughout the game. Watch the amazing highlights here.
The series against the Flyers will begin in Boston on Saturday afternoon at 12:30 p.m.
