Recchi becomes third-oldest playoff goal-scorer
Mark Recchi 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.
