Rangers and Bruins Continue Playoff Runs in Conference Semifinals

Both the New York Rangers and the Boston Bruins are battle tested this playoff season after going to the brink in the first round. The Bruins beat the Maple Leafs in seven games, needing two late goals in the third period of Game 7 to force overtime.

Milan Lucic scored with 1:22 left and Patrice Bergeron scored 31 seconds later to send the game to overtime, then Bergeron delivered again just over six minutes into the extra session.

The Rangers didn’t need quite as exciting of a game to seal their series against the Capitals, with a road Game 7 win in convincing fashion, 5-0.

The Bruins will have home ice, with the series opening Thursday, May 16 and Game 2 slated for Sunday, May 19. The Rangers host Games 3 and 4 at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday, May 21 and Thursday, May 23. If necessary, Game 5 will be in Boston on Saturday, May 25. Game Six would be in New York on Monday, May 27 and Game 7 would be back in Boston on Wednesday, May 29.

The Bruins have received strong goaltending from Tuukka Rask in the playoffs, with a 2.49 goals against average and a .923 save percentage. David Krejci has led the offensive attack with five goals and eight assists, while Nathan Horton has four goals and three assists. Milan Lucic has been a setup man with two goals and seven assists, while Zdeno Chara has a goal and seven assists from the blue line.

Henrik Lundqvist has been brilliant in goal for the Rangers with a 4-3 record, a 1.65 goals against average and a .947 save percentage. If King Henrik continues playing at this level, the Rangers could beat any team in the league. Scoring has been their bigger challenge, with no playing having scored more than two playoff goals. Derick Brassard, Carl Hagelin, Brian Boyle, Arron Asham and Derek Stepan each have two goals. The Rangers scored one goal or less in four of the seven games in the series against the Capitals.
