Bruins beat Red Wings 4-2, advance in NHL playoffs

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (WHDH) - The Boston Bruins defeated the Detroit Red Wings 4-2 in Saturday's game at TD Garden to advance to the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

A big goal from captain Zdeno Chara helped the Bruins advance from their first round match-up, four games to one.

The game was tied at 1 late into the second period, but the Bruins skated four on three and set up Chara to blast the puck past Jonas Gustavsson.

Into the third period, the Bruins kept the momentum rolling and Milan Lucic camped out in front of the goal sent the Bruins up 3-1 over the Red Wings.

Tuukka Rask made 31 saves to help the defending Eastern Conference champion Boston Bruins beat the Red Wings 4-2 in Game 5 of their first-round playoff series on Saturday and eliminate Detroit from the postseason.

The Bruins, who finished the regular season with the best record in the NHL, advance to the conference semifinals against the Montreal Canadiens.

Loui Eriksson opened the scoring for Boston, and Zdeno Chara snapped a second-period tie to give the Bruins the lead for good. Milan Lucic also scored, and Jarome Iginla added an empty-netter.

Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg scored and Jonas Gustavsson stopped 29 shots for Detroit.
