BEDFORD, Mass. (AP) - The Bruins are returning to Boston with one more chance to eliminate the Tampa Bay Lightning and reach the Stanley Cup finals.

This one is their last chance.

The Bruins flew back from Tampa, Fla., on Thursday, after losing 5-4 in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals. Tampa Bay scored three power play goals in the win, while Boston continued to struggle with the man advantage, and converted just one of five opportunities.

Game 7 is Friday night in Boston. The winner will play Vancouver in the Stanley Cup finals. The Canucks defeated the San Jose Sharks in the Western Conference finals, which ended Tuesday in five games.
