Tomas Vokoun seemed to settle in after surrendering six goals over the first two games of the Eastern Conference finals. Vokoun allowed just three goals in the series’ last two games, but sometimes, one goal is all it takes.
Adam McQuaid ripped a shot top shelf off a feed from Brad Marchand early in the third period to give the B’s a 1-0 lead. The goal proved to be enough, as another stellar performance from Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask (26 saves) helped the B’s complete the four-game sweep and advance to the Stanley Cup Final.
The Bruins will face the winner of the Western Conference finals matchup between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Los Angeles Kings. The Blackhawks currently hold a 3-1 series lead and will look to close out the series Saturday night.
