Boston Sweeps Pittsburgh And Makes It Back To The Stanley Cup Finals

Game Four of the Eastern Conference Final during the 2013 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at the TD Garden on June 7, 2013 in Boston.

The Boston Bruins beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 1-0 yesterday completing an improbable sweep of the top scoring team in the playoffs. With the win, the Bruins punched their ticket back to the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time since winning the cup in 2011.  It was quite an accomplishment for Boston to sweep the top seeded Penguins.  Pittsburgh hadn’t been sweep in the last 47 playoff series.

The only goal of the game came in the 3rd period and was scored by Adam McQuaid.  The Bruins have been resilient throughout the playoffs, this was especially evident after their first round victory over Toronto in 7 games.  The Bruins rallied from a 3 goal deficit in the 3rd period to come back and beat the Maple Leaves. Boston has made it back to the Finals because of their superior goal tending, physical play, and stingy defense.

It is fitting that Boston made it back to the Stanley Cup Finals, especially since the city is still trying to recover from the Boston Marathon bombings last month.  The Bruins will either face the Blackhawks or the Kings in the Finals.  Chicago has a 3-1 lead over the defending champion Kings, and will attempt to win the series tonight.  If the Blackhawks win it will be a rather intriguing Stanley Cup Finals matchup featuring two of the original 6 NHL teams.
