Bruins Sweep Canes
The Boston Bruins swept the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday night to reach the Stanley Cup Final for the first time since 2013.
The Bruins proved dominance over a Hurricane squad that upset the defending champion Washington Capitals in round one and followed up with a sweep of the New York Islanders. The Canes could not sustain the magic in the East Final as they were outscored 17-5 in the four games. Carolina’s offense looked anemic at times including a stretch in the second period of Game 4 where they did not record a shot for 14 minutes.
The Bruins went 7 for 15 in the series on the power play while the Hurricanes only converted one of their 14 power play opportunities in the series.
The Bruins now await the winner of the San Jose Sharks and St. Louis Blues series in the West Final.
Sharks Good Fortune Continues
The San Jose Sharks were the better team for the majority of Game 3, but they needed a blown call by the referees to avoid the final goal from being called back.
Blues Hard Work Leads to Game 4 Victory
The St. Louis Blues Monday night was able to even up the Stanley Cup Final against the Boston Bruins with a hard-fought 4-2 victory.
Bruins Playing Father Time
The Boston Bruins completed a 107 point regular season with an Eastern Conference championship this year. The Bruins came one win short of hoisting the cup.
