Boston's Youth Made Impact in Playoffs

The 32-year-old winger, who missed nearly two entire seasons after a series of concussions (four total, including, incredibly, two suffered in collisions with teammates), swore he'd be back for these playoffs.

Clarke MacArthur scored a power-play goal with 6:30 gone in the first overtime and the Ottawa Senators beat the Boston Bruins 3-2 on Sunday to win their first-round playoff series in six games. The Senators, who hadn't won a postseason series for since 2013, will play the New York Rangers in the second round.

In the second to last game of the regular season Torey Krug struggled to get off the ice and in the Bruins' final regular season game Washington's Alex Ovechkin hit Brandon Carlo's head into the glass.

After a 3-2 double-overtime loss to the Bruins in Game 5 on Friday, the Senators weren't facing a must-win game - but MacArthur made sure the series ended in six anyway.

"Yeah, I thought he was great", said Bergeron, who tied the game at 2 with a third period goal.

McAvoy played 7:35 of the opening period but then his ice time increased as fellow blue-liner Colin Miler left the game early in the second period with a leg injury and did not return. The goal was Ryan's team-leading fourth of the playoffs.

Drew Stafford put the Bruins up 1-0 with a power play goal from the right circle at 18:13 in the first. "We didn't work all year just to sit back and hope things turn out our way", Boucher said.

The Bruins made the playoffs for the first time in three seasons, rallying after firing the winningest coach in franchise history and the one that led them to the 2011 Stanley Cup title. Two were lost on power-play goals. I think tonight we had a really, really good third period and we needed another goal.

Morrow, who had not played a game since February, was inserted into the lineup after the injury bug hit his fellow defensemen and he proved he is ready for full-time National Hockey League duty. There's certainly bright sides and bright spots - Sean Kuraly's game that he had in Ottawa (Game 5) when we were backs against the wall.

Craig Anderson only seemed to get better as the series went on, and he'd had an excellent year.

Bobby Ryan and Kyle Turris also scored for Ottawa. "I've said it before, but a lot of credit to them". "They earned it, they deserve it, and they're moving on and we are not".

"That will be determined by management, whether I continue to be the head coach", he said. You would have liked another game or round of experience for numerous B's young pieces, but you're nuts if you don't walk away from this series with a positive outlook given the sneak peek at a guy like Charlie McAvoy.

What Stafford gave late in the first period, he took away at 8:32 of the middle period.

Johansson tied it about five minutes later, the sequence starting with a pass by Martin Marincin that went astray in the neutral zone. "Boy, mom and dad, you must be proud of him". He's a big, good goalie. "It's just kind of the way the game went". Defenseman Mark Borowiecki, who suffered a lower body injury Game 2, is making progress, as is forward Tom Pyatt who missed the last two games of the series with an upper body injury.

St. Louis hosts Nashville in the other Western semifinal beginning Wednesday.
