Both the Pittsburgh Penguins and Boston Bruins defeated their second round opponents 4-1 to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals. The Bruins defeated the New York Rangers in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals with a 3-1 victory Saturday night. The Penguins, dubbed the “Miami Heat of the NHL” by Boston’s Milan Lucic, finished off the Senators with a 6-2 victory Friday night. The Bruins may be the underdogs this series – the Penguins beat the Bruins in a all three regular season games – but remember, they only lost those three matches by one goal (3-2, 2-1, 3-2).
