Rask stands up for 28 saves to beat Rangers 3-1 in Game 5, help Bruins advance to East finals

BOSTON - Tuukka Rask stopped 28 shots, Gregory Campbell scored twice and the Boston Bruins beat the New York Rangers in Game 5 on Saturday to advance to the Eastern Conference finals.

The Bruins will face the Pittsburgh Penguins for the right to play for the Stanley Cup.

Recent call-up Torey Krug scored his fourth goal of the series for Boston, which reached the third round of the NHL playoffs for the second time since 1992. The other was 2011, when the Bruins won the sixth Stanley Cup in franchise history.

Dan Girardi scored and Henrik Lundqvist made 29 saves for the Rangers, who lost to New Jersey in last year's East finals.

Campbell broke a 1-1 tie in the second period, then added an empty-netter with 51 seconds left after Lundqvist was pulled for an extra skater.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.
