He played in 35 games for Boston during the regular season and now two games in the playoffs, totaling four goals and three assists. The Carolina Hurricanes made quick work of the New York Islanders and in their last four playoff runs, haven't been eliminated any sooner than the Eastern Conference finals.

"Don't worry, we have something better planned", the company tweeted Wednesday.

As statistically lopsided as the final score ended up, the game was anything but. The Bruins played from behind that entire series, falling behind 1-0, 2-1 and 3-2.

Boston won the first game of the series in overtime, then fell to the Blue Jackets in OT in Game 2 and lost Game 3 by a goal before ripping off the final three victories.

David Krejci scored in the first period, and Marcus Johansson and David Backes had third-period goals for the Bruins, who gave up four power plays to the Blue Jackets but stonewalled Columbus on a number of chances.

Officiating wasn't been very good in this game.

"I can't take it. Hockey and southern accents", Toettcher said adding, "I didn't think he was saying anything particularly interesting, and it was getting on my nerves". "He was definitely our most consistent player throughout the series".




Landeskog dumped the puck into the zone, turned in a big hit along the boards, got up in time to take a pass from rookie Cale Makar and knock in the goal past Martin Jones to help the Avalanche escape elimination.

"They had their period and we had ours, the first was pretty even", Rask said afterwards, reflecting on the night's roller coaster. "Guys they know it, they got to dig in".

"If I don't like something, I don't like something", Toettcher said.

Tuukka Rask stopped 29 shots for Boston, which trailed 2-1 before capitalizing on back-to-back power plays.

Boston got its second goal 8:58 into the third when Bobrovsky allowed a shot by Johansson to bounce behind him after the initial stop. "But we're looking forward to it".

Boston was already without Chara's defense partner, Charlie McAvoy, who was suspended one game for a shoulder to the head of Columbus forward Josh Anderson.

It was still 2-1 when Jordan Staal was sent off for roughing in the opening minute of the third period. Rask faced a total of 212 shots and now leads all goalies who have played at least three games this playoffs with an average 0.938 save percentage over 13 games played.
