Boston looked like they had won the game when the rookie broke free on a breakaway and took the puck to the front of the net.
Capitals 2, Maple Leafs 1 (OT): Marcus Johansson stuffed his second goal of the game past Frederik Andersen at 6:31 of overtime, lifting Washington to a series-winning victory over Toronto in Game 6.
Capitals winger Justin Williams scored 64 seconds into overtime as Washington won a 2-1 thriller over the Toronto Maple Leafs to take a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series.
Kuraly, who has played just eight regular season games and was suited up for only his third in the playoffs, scored the deciding goal at 10:19 of the second extra session. I have no stats to back this up, but I think Turris is the best player on the team at using opposing defencemen as screens. "I'm very proud of them", said Chara. "Those are the good ones, you don't get many of those, but hey it bounced on my stick and I'm happy that it did". It was the first of his career for Kuraly, a 24-year old former fifth round pick who previously had only one assist on his National Hockey League resume. Theres no time to linger on games that you win or that you lose. "For it to go in felt good".
Ryan and Kyle Turris also scored for the Senators.
Craig Anderson made 28 saves for the win. Ottawa's Anderson saved 36 of 39 through it all.
"Game 5 was a long one for us", Anderson said. With only a couple of potential games left, Wednesday love to close this out as soon as we can. That's all it is.
"It was really cool to see", teammate Kevan Miller said.
The Bruins' season on the brink finally reached its limit, just like their talent. "Both sides had their chances and tonight it went our way".
"We knew it wasn't going to come easy and it hasn't come easy for us".
After a review, however, the goal was wiped out when it was ruled Kuraly was guilty of goalie interference. The Bruins challenged the call to no avail.
"Now we're making a lot of assumptions", he said. "It's too late now".
"I think it was apparent to everybody that we weren't at full strength, and guys had to step up, and we talked about it". The move was a gutsy one by Cassidy, who is also from Ottawa. "We didn't work all year just to sit back and hope things turn out our way", Boucher said.
"One door closes, another one opens, and he took advantage of his opportunities starting at the bottom of the lineup". He started at the bottom of the lineup.
Given all their injuries, though, the Bruins should have been more cautious with their play, particularly when it came to the types of penalties they had gotten. "We got in the playoffs, played hard as a group, and then played a heck of a series and every game is a one goal game so it was a hard-fought series that didn't go our way". It definitely stings right now to be standing here and talking about it but like I said, ups and downs. To win this series and to go deep it's an issue that needs addressing, my fear is that it can't be ratified this season. "We've worked all year and all summer to get back into this position, and now we're here". "He looked a little bit like 1980 Miracle, running around the ice". Stalberg is listed as day-to-day.
The Ottawa Senators have officially advanced to the second round of the 2017 Stanley Cup playoffs. Especially in the Stanley Cup playoffs.
During the regular season, Wideman was a mainstay on defence, appearing in 76 games, while Claesson only played in 33.
