Boston Bruins Heading To Eastern Conference Finals

From sweeping to getting swept What contributed to the Islanders’ fall in Round 2

If it continues, the Hurricanes might think about sitting back more, which isn't what they want to do.

Game three is set for 8 p.m. ET in Raleigh, North Carolina where the Carolina Hurricanes will look to remain unscathed at home while the Boston Bruins will try and expand their series lead to three games.

Brad Marchand is toeing the line of peskiness, yet again.

Prior to this season, teams that have gone 0-2 to start a playoff round have gone on to win the series just 50 times while losing 318. "It doesn't taste good and you have to chew on it for a little bit", Hurricanes captain Justin Williams said. "Marchy did a heck of a job keeping his composure".

But the Bruins are no slouches on the road. We might. But that might be for different reasons than you guys think. "You come out, and sometimes you gotta eat a poop sandwich". The combination of the playmaking and the finish around the net is a good formula for Johansson, who has goals in consecutive games. "We haven't let them get in the zone and really set up very much. And that's a cool feeling to have". Carolina's offense was stagnant; they were credited with just nine scoring chances for the entire game.

"I don't worry about that", Cassidy said.

"They haven't lost at home". "Being a younger, newer team to the playoffs, that has fueled them a lot".

"It will be loud in there".

"They've played a strong game in their building". I suspect the urgency level will be high.

"It definitely helps if you try to get the first goal", Bruins right wing David Pastrnak said. He also drew the boarding penalty on Staal in the third period that led to Boston's first power-play goal and got the B's off and running for the rest of the period in their comeback win.

Hamilton ended up reportedly requesting a trade from the team that drafted him with the 9th overall pick in the 2011 draft and got to play in Canada.

The Hurricanes are a flawless 5-0 at PNC Arena this postseason, outscoring their opposition 22-7 in front of their home fans. "I'm old enough. I should be able to know better". "They just play better at home, not exactly sure what it is about them at home. I hear it's real loud in there - I've been in there when it's loud, so we'll anticipate that atmosphere".

"I know if I was in that position, it would be do or die, your back's up against the wall". He has spent parts of seven seasons in the National Hockey League but has never played more than 47 games in a year.

In Denver, Colorado avoided elimination as Gabriel Landeskog scored at 2:32 of overtime to lift the Avalanche to a 4-3 victory over the San Jose Sharks in game six of their Western Conference second-round series.
