Final: Hurricanes 4, Bruins 2

All done in Carolina. Jiri Tlusty scores ENG to finish out Bruins.

13:26 3d period, Hurricanes 3-2: Tuukka Rask at top of crease to cut down Jiri Tlusty angle. Bruins looking very fragile. One more Carolina goal and could be curtains.

9:36 3d period, Hurricanes 3-2: Ex-Bruin Joe Corvo with the PP strike. Takes pass from Marc-Andre Bergeron and goes high blocker on Tuukka Rask.

6:49 3d period, 2-2: Tuukka Rask comes way out to boot away Chad LaRose attempt.

20:00 2d period, 2-2: Expect a three-line attack for Bruins in third period. Tyler Seguin got a late shift with Nathan Horton and David Krejci.


17:57 2d period, 2-2: Horrid line change by Hurricanes. Tyler Seguin takes advantage. Goes high glove on Justin Peters. Timely goal.

14:04 2d period, Hurricanes 2-1: Jiri Tlusty with the net-front strike. Quick passing down low by Eric Staal. Whips blind backhand pass out from behind net.

10:14 2d period, 1-1: Terrific glove save by Justin Peters on Jaromir Jagr. Sprawls out at last moment. Bruins can’t score on five-on-three.

20:00 1st period, 1-1: Tuukka Rask still hot. Slams stick into boards as he makes a quick exit. Probably some naughty Finnish words flying around.

19:38 1st period, 1-1: Gregory Campbell vs. Nicolas Blanchard. Off the draw. Looked like Blanchard and Adam McQuaid were having words too.

19:26 1st period, 1-1: Jeff Skinner takes PP shot from below goal line. Puck bounces off Tuukka Rask and into net.

18:41 1st period, Bruins 1-0: Zdeno Chara vs. Jay Harrison. Harrison gets things going by popping Chara after whistle. Chara responds. Harrison does job, gets captain off for five minutes.

14:14 1st period, Bruins 1-0: Shawn Thornton vs. Kevin Westgarth off the draw. Westgarth starts with left. Thornton gets Westgarth’s helmet off. Both on feet when fight ends.

8:16 1st period, Bruins 1-0: Giveaway by Adam McQuaid. Jordan Staal has good look in front, but Tuukka Rask gloves shot.


6:07 1st period, Bruins 1-0: Milan Lucic tips Matt Bartkowski’s point shot past Justin Peters. Had gained net-front position on Justin Faulk. Lucic’s first goal since March 25.

0:00 1st period, 0-0: Jay Pandolfo, Dougie Hamilton, Aaron Johnson, and Wade Redden are healthy scratches.
