An overtime goal by Vinny Lecavilier sealed the Bruins fourth straight win advancing them to the Eastern Conference Finals. The win moves the Bruins to an impressive 8-2 playoff record and now they wait for the winner of the Ottawa/Philly series. The team has been showing an explosive offensive game with an incredible 44 goals in 10 games, a 4.4 goals per game average. While that pace won't continue the teams defense is what was expected to carry the team this post season. The Bruins have surrendered only 21 goals against, a 2.1 goals against per game average.
Looking ahead, the team is healthy and seems to have some momentum. While many are predicting the Bruins to represent the East in the cup finals, the General Manager tempered those expectations "We know the chatter around the league but we're experienced enough to know every series is a new story, whoever we face whether it's Ottawa or Philly, we know it will the toughest test yet. We're not looking beyond the next series, we're gonna rest up and start thinking about the next opponent".
