Michael Ryder won Game 4 by scoring the OT winner. If the Bruins win Game 5, it will be in part because he pinch-hit for goaltender Tim Thomas.
Michael Cammalleri outraced the defense, tried to deke Thomas, then saw teammate Tomas Plekanec all alone in the slot. He dished a perfect pass for what looked like a sure goal – only to have Ryder dive across and get it with his right glove ... a save any goaltender would have been proud of.
"That was a big save. Unbelievable," coach Claude Julien told Versus' Darren Pang coming out of the second TV timeout midway through the period.
