The Bruins took a 1-0 lead into the final minute of Game 4 on Friday, but the Penguins would not go down without a fight. With goalie Tomas Vokoun pulled for an extra skater, Pittsburgh unleashed one last flurry in the Boston zone. Pascal Dupuis nearly capitalized with Tuukka Rask on his knees outside the crease, but the Bruins’ scrambling defense prevented the Penguins from getting off a clean shot. Jarome Iginla finally found an open look with the puck on his stick, but his slapshot whistled into Rask’s waiting glove as time expired, bringing the series to a fitting end. Check out Pittsburgh’s final push and Boston’s post-win celebration in the video below.
