Boston Bruins' Marcus Johansson skates against Carolina Hurricanes' Brett Pesce during the first period in Game 3 of the NHL hockey Stanley Cup Eastern Conference final series in Raleigh N.C. Tuesday

Check out all of the exciting action from Thursday night's Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final!

Jake DeBrusk, David Pastrnak and Chris Wagner were among the players to celebrate postgame, and Krug was all smiles while talking to reporters after the win.

The Stanley Cup Final is slated to begin May 27, with the Bruins set to face the Sharks or Blues once the Western Conference finals end.

To hear from Krug, check out the "NESN Sports Today" video above, presented by People's United Bank.

Chara was limited to 62 games in the regular season due to a knee injury but had played in all 16 of the Bruins' playoff contests prior to Thursday. Once it was in Game 2 versus the Columbus Blue Jackets, which was a double-overtime game and the second time it happened in Game 5 against the Blue Jackets, which the Bruins won.

Through 17 games played in the playoffs; the Bruins have given up 33 goals.

"We do have black aces, a group, would we scrimmage, you know, one day to try to keep the edge".

McHugh also refuted the allegation that "any employee was sacked to quash concerns relating to any client". A report by the New York Times revealed that the transactions dated to the period of 2016 and 2017.

Both teams boast size and skill at the forward positions, which will make the 42-year-old Chara a very important piece of the B's quest to finish the job and hoist the Stanley Cup for the first time since 2011. It's like you're cut real quick. With Rask stopping 109 of the 114 shots he faced in the series, the Bruins trailed in only one game - the first one.

The Bruins hope to have one of their best assets back on the ice for their last series of the postseason. "But I think we're gonna reach out to their group and tap into every different - we look at everybody's assets in that way and hopefully they'll be able to share some information with us", Sweeney said. In other words, the Canes had little life offensively, thanks to Tuukka Rask and his magnificent goaltending, but also huge thanks go to the Boston Bruins defense, led by Zdeno Chara. You've got days in between and two days for travel.

They are only four away from joining the Red Sox and New England Patriots by bringing a trophy back to the current city of champions in the past year.

But once again Sweeney does not seem too concerned with the time off for Rask.

He's the third goalie in NHL history to record multiple series-clinching shutouts in a conference final/NHL Semifinal, joining Jacques Plante (three) and Glenn Hall (two). Now, they have won seven straight games while giving up just nine goals in the process. Eventually we figured out the best way to do that was to put the puck behind their "D" and just go to work and grind out goals and grind out zone time.

"I think our guys know how to practice, " he said with a smile.
