Rally now behind them, Bruins face another tall task in G Lundqvist, shot-blocking Rangers

BOSTON - The Boston Bruins are about to face one of the NHL's top goalies.

They'll open their Eastern Conference semifinal series against the New York Rangers on Thursday night when they'll try to get the puck past Henrik Lundqvist. But first they must get the puck to the net and that could be a challenge against one of the league's leading shot-blocking teams.

The Bruins struggled for most of the last three games in their opening series against the Toronto Maple Leafs before scoring four goals in the last 17 minutes to win Game 7 in overtime 5-4.

The Rangers came back from a 3-2 series deficit to beat the Washington Capitals as Lundqvist posted shutouts in the last two games.

Quote of the Day

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.
