  • Carolina Hurricanes knocked out of playoffs after fourth loss to Boston Bruins

Chara had been set to play in his 176th career playoff game, which would have tied him with current San Jose Sharks player Joe Thornton and Mike Modano for 40th all-time in playoff games.

The Boston Bruins are back to the Stanley Cup Final - their first since 2013, though professional sports teams in Boston have hardly suffered since then - knocking out the Carolina Hurricanes in a sweep.

Tuukka Rask (a 24-save shutout in Game 4) leveled up to an elite tier of performance, and that's now two straight series-clinching shutouts. "We need to really enjoy this but realize we have a lot of work to do".

Boston hasn't had much rest throughout its playoff run and has had to quickly turn the page from one series to the next.

Their sweep of the Carolina Hurricanes in the Eastern Conference final has afforded them a few extra days to rest up before their third Stanley Cup Final appearance in nine years.

"I don't think the break will hurt him, other than you lose some of your sharpness of game intensity", coach Bruce Cassidy said. "It's been running on adrenaline and sheer will". He had just one goal in 74 games during the regular season. It's like you're cut real quick.

Carolina got this far by sweeping the New York Islanders in Round 2.

Waddell, in his first season as GM, has the Hurricanes in the playoffs for the first time since 2009.

After outscoring them 17-5 in four games, Boston no doubt wants to halt that trend - especially with the sport's biggest prize on the line.

However when the team got to the Eastern Conference Finals they hit a brick wall and have not managed to secure a win.

The Blues have reached the playoffs seven times under Armstrong, and their 403 wins since he took over in 2010-11 are tied with the Boston Bruins for the third-most in the National Hockey League in that span, behind the Pittsburgh Penguins (419) and Washington Capitals (408).

So it was no surprise that Boston took control with its best-in-the-playoffs power-play unit. Is the last night for the Hurricanes this year, or can they stave off elimination? "And they made us pay".

"Tuukka's been very consistent", Cassidy said. Boston stretched their lead to 3-0 when they capitalized on a Jacob Slavin turnover and Patrice Bergeron scored his second goal of the game. Defensively, the Boston Bruins are allowing two goals per game and are killing 85.7 percent of their opponents power plays.

Rask - who blanked Columbus 3-0 in the decisive sixth game of the previous series - didn't even face a shot on goal for roughly the first half of the third, and only seven for the entire period.

That this game was scoreless after 20 minutes was a testament to McElhinney, who came up with several early gems - including robbing Marchand from close range with his glove about 7½ minutes in.
