had Boston's lone goal in the Bruins' 2-1 playoff loss to Buffalo on Thursday night to become the third-oldest player in Stanley Cup history to light the red light.
Recchi fired in a rebound at 9:30 of the second period to tie the game at 1-1. It was the 51st playoff goal in the 42-year-old's NHL career.
The oldest player to score a playoff goal is -- not surprisingly -- Gordie Howe
, who was 52 when he scored the last of his 68 playoff goals for the Hartford Whalers on April 9, 1980. Chris Chelios
, still active with Atlanta this season, had his most recent playoff goal on April 21, 2007, when he was 45.
