Bruins vs. Rangers: Here we go again
Over the last decade Boston fans have already witnessed the Giants beating the Patriots twice in Super Bowls, a dramatic seven-game American League championship series win by the Red Sox over the Yankees in 2004 and, just two weeks ago in the NBA playoffs, the Knicks eliminate a proud, but injured-depleted Celtics’ squad in six games.
The Bruins are coming off their historic 5-4 Game 7 overtime win against Toronto Monday while in another Game 7, the Rangers dispatched the Washington Capitals 5-0 behind Henrik Lundqvist’s 35-save performance. Lundqvist posted back-to-back shutouts in Games 6 and 7 to close out the Caps.
Boston’s line of Krejci, Milan Lucic, who scored Boston’s third goal in the final two minutes of regulation on Monday and, Nathan Horton (four goals, seven points) has been the team’s top combo.
Still the Bruins are averaging a goal better than the Rangers in the playoffs. In their series against Washington, New York scored just one goal in three of the games (winning one of them) and were shutout in another contest.
