Bruins down Blue Jackets to advance in National Hockey League playoffs

The Bruins defeated the Columbus Blue Jackets in six games, capped by a 3-0 win Monday night.

In Denver, Colorado, Gabriel Landeskog scored 2:32 into overtime after Colorado squandered a late lead in regulation as the Avalanche beat the San Jose Sharks 4-3 to force a decisive Game 7 in their Western Conference semi-final series.

Patrice Bergeron, standing in front of the Carolina net on a Boston power play, rifled a shot home past Petr Mrazek at 2:54 of the third period to give the Bruins a 3-2 lead. All three were won by Boston.

"I felt very good [Monday], good sign", Mrazek told reporters.

Embiid returns to form for 76ers in 'do-or-die' win
After Game 4, Brown explained that his 25-year-old centre had been struck by a virus, details of which were naturally fuzzy. On a conference call with reporters on Monday afternoon, Brown would only say that he had no update on Embiid's condition.


"[Rask] was definitely our most consistent player throughout the whole series", Boston coach Bruce Cassidy said.

Krejci opened the scoring at 12:13 of the second period after Jake DeBrusk's shot hit the crossbar and cannoned to him. The puck caromed around the boards to Krejci, who unleashed a shot from the top of the right circle that sailed over the right pad and under the blocker of Bobrovsky.

While Carolina should have a distinct advantage at 5v5, the Bruins should dominate the special teams portion of the series. The two-time Vezina Trophy recipient was unable to corral the puck as it trickled over the goal line.

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.

During the period, Australia will play 28 global matches across 10 venues that will also include the women's T20 World Cup . The home season will conclude with an ODI series against New Zealand in March, to be played in Sydney and Hobart.


The Bruins appeared to have a goal in the first period when Sean Kuraly put one in after an extended close-in attack on a power play, but it was overturned after a replay showed that Joakim Nordstrom had pushed Bobrovsky out of the crease.

McAvoy said of the incident, "Hockey play".

"We peppered him", Blue Jackets captain Nick Foligno said. "It (stinks). You just hate seeing your teammate lying on the ground with a hit that's unnecessary". In saying that, I don't think the Bruins will be pushovers by any stretch - and it's entirely possible a stronger power play, and/or Tuukka Rask, can offset Carolina's potential advantage at 5v5. Defenseman Zach Werenski's wrist shot from above the left circle rang the iron on the same power-play opportunity.

It's also worth noting that Boston lost Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final in 2011, falling to the Tampa Bay Lightning 5-2 at TD Garden, then came back to win the series, and ultimately the Stanley Cup.

The bloc has contributed Britain until October 31 to ratify the Brexit agreement or leave the bloc with no deal to smooth the way. She said: 'She's tried her best, nobody could fault or doubt her commitment and sense of duty, but she has failed.


The Blue Jackets almost answered about a minute later, but Josh Anderson hit the bar as well on a setup from Artemi Panarin.
