For the second time in five days, Boston ended a contest on the winning end, as the Bruins defeated the Washington Capitals, 4-3 at the Verizon Center.

Here are some postgame reactions and thoughts.

How The Game Was Won: With roughly two minutes remaining, and the score tied, 3-3, Boston’s Zdeno Chara whipped a shot from the nearside wing past Washington’s Braden Holtby, (25 saves) which clinched the victory for the Bruins.

Boston’s Fourth Line Sparked The Offense: Let’s give some props to the Bruins fourth line, which tied this particular match in the second period when Daniel Paille wristed a shot past Holtby. That strike rejuvenated the Black and Gold, and helped them register two more tallies before the buzzer sounded.

It All Starts With Defense: With a chance to earn a 2-1 lead in the series, Boston’s top defensive unit – Zdeno Chara and Dennis Seidenberg – ramped up their  intensity, and provided some physical blows late in the third period, which helped set up the game-winning goal.

Both players finished the contest with 11 combined hits, and five shots on net.

The Bruins Power Play: Once again, Boston ended another postseason contest with no power play goals. The Bruins are currently 0-for-11 against the Capitals when they have an extra skater, and will attempt to snap their scoreless streak on Thursday, Apr. 19.

Other Notes:

* Washington outshot Boston, 32-29. 

Washington ended the game with one power play goal, but failed to capitalize on their second, third and fourth chances.

* The last time Boston led a series, 2-1 was against Tampa Bay in 2011 during the Eastern Conference Finals. The Bruins wound up winning that particular series, 4-3, and then defeated the Vancouver Canucks to claim their sixth Stanley Cup championship.

Bruins-Hurricanes: Second Period Recap

By Matt Noonan 

BOSTON, MA – Trailing Carolina by one goal, Boston’s goaltender Tuukka Rask, (20 saves) attempted to jumpstart his team’s offense by recording various highlight reel saves. Yet, Rask’s efforts didn’t exactly help, as the Hurricanes took advantage of Boston’s lackluster player to notch their second goal of the evening, which Tuomo Ruutu connected on a backhanded rebound for the score at 16:41.

The Hurricanes tallied 14 shots in 20 minutes while the Bruins finished the period with five.

Boston had numerous scoring chances, but David Krejci, Dennis Seidenberg and Zdeno Chara could not poke the puck past Cam Ward, (27 saves).

Interesting Note: The Bruins have been held scoreless following the second period eight time this season. Also, Ward has two shutouts this season, and 18 in his NHL career. (Both notes were provided by the Bruins PR/Media Staff.).
