The Bruins had another chance to close out the Rangers on Saturday night in Game 5. They seized it.
Torey Krug continued his unlikely run as a playoff hero by scoring the tying goal in the second period, and Gregory Campbell followed up with the game-winner and an empty-net goal to boot.
Despite a desperate effort by the Blueshirts, the grit of Boston’s fourth line was too much for Henrik Lundqvist to withstand, and the depth of the Bruins forwards won out over the goalie’s superior effort.
Tuukka Rask fended off the Rangers attack from there on out with some help from his teammates, and the Bruins are moving on to face the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Eastern Conference finals.
