Found May 21, 2013 on Fox Sports:
Daniel Paille snapped a tie with 3:31 left in the third period, and the Boston Bruins put the New York Rangers on the brink of elimination with a 2-1 victory in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series on Tuesday night. Boston leads the best-of-seven series 3-0 and can advance to the conference finals as early as Thursday at Madison Square Garden. Only three teams in NHL history have rallied from an 0-3 hole to advance. The Bruins trailed 1-0 heading into the third, but defenseman Johnny Boychuk tied it at 3:10 of the period with his fourth of the playoffs. The Rangers hadn't lost in regulation when leading after two periods since Feb. 4, 2010. Boston thought it had grabbed the lead seconds before Paille actually scored when a shot deflected off the mask of Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist, popped up in the air and landed on the goal line. Lundqvist couldn't find it before Paille swooped in from behind the net and poked in the puck.

Daniel Paille’s Bizarre Bouncing Goal Propels Bruins to 3-0 Series Lead Over Rangers (Video)

The New York Rangers shut down the Bruins’ top scorers Tuesday night, but it was the grinders that ended up leading the B’s to victory. Boston’s fourth line was on the ice for both of their goals in Game 3, including Daniel Paille‘s game-winner with 3:31 to play in regulation. Gregory Campbell‘s shot from the left boards ricocheted off linemate Shawn Thornton and over the...

Bruins put the Rangers on the brink

Daniel Paille snapped a tie with 3:31 left in the third period, and the Boston Bruins put the New York Rangers on the brink of elimination with a 2-1 victory in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series on Tuesday night. Boston leads the best-of-seven series 3-0 and can advance to the conference finals as early as Thursday at Madison Square Garden. Only three teams in NHL...

Lineup changes: Girardi and McDonagh back together

Per Andrew Gross, Dan Girardi and Ryan McDonagh are back together as a pairing on defense. After an abysmal Game Two with Michael Del Zotto, Girardi will be reunited with McDonagh to form that top shutdown pair the Rangers split up after the Washington series. Del Zotto will be with Anton Stralman, and the John Moore-Steve Eminger pair remains the same. The change is likely two-fold...

Boston Bruins Goalie Tuukka Rask Drops F Bomb On Reporter

A.B. According to Toucher & Rich and descriptions/comments on numerous websites – the unnamed reporter from 98.5 The Sports Hub angered Bruins goalie, Tuukka Rask, by touching (and possibly knocking over) his iPad. For me, the story isn’t the swearing on live television. For me, the stare down is the story. If Tuukka had punched the reporter in the face I wouldn’t have...

Bruins Fourth Line’s Often-Overlooked Hard Work Leads to Big Showing in Game 3 Win

The Bruins’ fourth line is a fourth line in that there are three lines that usually play more minutes every night than they do. But to those who watch the B’s on a regular basis, it’s clear that the “fourth line” is much more than that. While the contributions of Daniel Paille, Gregory Campbell and Shawn Thornton don’t always stand out on the stat sheet at the end of...

Providence Bruins Blow 3-0 Lead in AHL Playoffs, Fall to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in Game 7

Bruins fans, look away. After winning the first three games of their Eastern Conference semifinal series, the B’s AHL affiliate in Providence proceeded to drop four straight to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins (Pittsburgh’s farm club), who completed the comeback with a 5-0 shellacking of the P-Bruins on their home ice Wednesday night. It marked just the third time in AHL history...

Tyler Seguin Still Looking to Break Through in Playoffs As Bruins Look for Goal-Scoring Spark to Return (Video)

Tyler Seguin scored 16 goals in the regular season, but the Bruins are still waiting for their gifted winger to show that goal-scoring form in the playoffs. Seguin has zero goals and just one assist entering Tuesday’s Game 3 against the Rangers, and Boston would certainly love to see him begin adding to those totals soon. Despite a breakaway attempt in the first period, the 21...

Bruins Take 3-0 Lead, On Brink Of Losing Series

It’s over. I remember the last time that Rask was part of a 3-0 lead in the semifinals. — Mark Feldman (@Feldman985) May 22, 2013 I’m always amazed at the ability of some people to immediately hone in on the negative. In sports media, it’s the people involved with sports radio and television who feel the need to create something negative out of a very impressive performance...

Dennis Seidenberg, Wade Redden Could be Ready to Play in Game 3, Would Leave Bruins With Tough Lineup Decisions (Video)

The Bruins are up 2-0 in the Eastern Conference semifinals against the New York Rangers, and they may be up two more players the next time the B’s take the ice in Game 3. Veteran defeseman Dennis Seidenberg practiced with his team for the first time since injuring himself a week ago during the Bruins’ Game 7 win over the Maple Leafs. Defenseman Wade Redden also practiced with...

‘Chameleon’ Line Comes Through for Bruins as Difference-Makers in Third Period (Video)

The Bruins’ fourth line has been called many things. The players are probably OK with them all, as long as you can call them “winners.” You can on Tuesday night after a gritty, gutsy performance for Boston pushed the B’s to a 3-0 series lead over the New York Rangers. After the dramatic, come-from-behind victory, NESN’s Jack Edwards and Andy Brickley were rinkside at Madison...

Vote: Who Has Been the Bruins’ MVP Thus Far in the Playoffs?

There is still a lot of playoff hockey to play (any Bruins fan will assure you that the team’s second-round series with the Rangers is not close to being over), but it’s not too early to take a look at who some of Boston’s top performers have been so far. The short list obviously has to include goalie Tuukka Rask, who leads all netminders with seven wins in the postseason and...

Zdeno Chara gets hit in the face by Ryan Callahan, no call on the play

The Officiating has been poor in the Stanley Cup Playoffs this year. This is an obvious high stick by Rangers forward Ryan Callahan on Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara that should drawn a double minor. Four officials on the ice and no one saw it. The Officials did manage to call a weak penalty on Jaromir Jagr that was much less serious than this.
