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 spent a long summer thinking about that playoff series and what could have been. [The Blackhawks] ended up being the Stanley Cup champions, so we know we lost to a very good team. It's tough to know how close we were, and it motivates us for this year.
