Boston Bruins v Atlanta Thrashers

Gregory Campbell scored the go-ahead and
insurance goals, while Tuukka Rask made 28 saves as the Boston Bruins
eliminated the New York Rangers with a 3-1 decision in Game 5 of this Eastern
Conference semifinal from TD Garden.

Torey Krug added another marker for the Bruins, who reached the third
round for the second time in the last three years.

Boston will take on the top-seeded Penguins in the Eastern Conference finals,
the first time these two clubs meet in the penultimate playoff round since
Pittsburgh swept the Bruins in four straight 21 years ago.

Dan Girardi’s first-period strike was all the offense for the Rangers, who
couldn’t maintain momentum from Thursday’s overtime victory which kept them
alive in the best-of-seven set.

Henrik Lundqvist stopped 29 shots in defeat.
