LISTEN TO THE PODCAST HERE:
Last night the Bruins took a stranglehold on their series with a 2-1 win over the Rangers to get a 3-0 series lead. Henrik Lundqvist returned to his usual form but it was not enough for the Rangers to come away with the win. The Rangers scored early and got the crowd into it but the Bruins responded in the 3rd with 2 goals and continued to roll over the Rangers. The Bruins will go for the sweep Thursday night at 7pm.
Out on the west coast the Sharks pulled even with the Kings in their series by getting a 2-1 victory at the Shark Tank. Antti Niemi put together another solid Vezina finalist type performance and carried his Sharks to a huge win. Jonathan Quick was once again solid but his team couldn’t put the puck in the opposing net. The series shifts back to LA for game 5 to see who can jump ahead on Thursday night 10:30pm.
