The 2014 Vezina Trophy victor made 39 saves, including 11 against the power play, to anchor Boston's 3-0 win over Columbus to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time since 2013.

"We never got discouraged even after the disallowed goal", said Zdeno Chara."We stayed patient and didn't get frustrated".

Boston radio host Fred Toettcher, co-host of the "Toucher & Rich" show on WBZ-FM in Boston, abruptly hung up on a Hurricanes reporter, cutting him off and saying, "I just can't listen to a guy with a Southern accent talk hockey".

But the Bruins managed to tie the game at two goals apiece on a power play, after Jordan Staal headed to the box for boarding Chris Wagner.

Carolina wrapped up a four-game sweep of the New York Islanders on Friday.

"He was in [the] full practice today with no limitations, so that's a positive", Brind'Amour said. "We left him out to dry there at the end".

Tuukka Rask capped off the Bruins' series against the Blue Jackets with an exclamation point.

If Kampfer was the Bruins' least likely goal scorer, Sebastian Aho was the most likely to get one for Carolina.

Officials missed an obvious interference call on Boston's Sean Kuraly and gave the Bruins a power play after an elbowing call on Dougie Hamilton.

Boston set up in the Hurricanes' zone, and Jake DeBrusk sent the puck across the ice to Marchand, who tipped it back into the slot for Bergeron, who slid it through Mrazek's pads to make it 3-1. The Bruins won two of the three regular-season meetings against the Hurricanes.

The Bruins failed to score, but the crowd taunted the former Bruin. "I felt 120 percent [Monday], to be honest". "They've chanted my name before, so for me it is what it is". We realized after the second period we needed to play harder.

Near the end of the second, Boston's Charlie McAvoy almost took off Josh Anderson's head with a hit, but the officials levelled only a two-minute minor penalty for an illegal check.

Columbus hit the crossbar three times: Pierre-Luc Dubois in the first period, and Dean Kukan and Josh Anderson in the second. Rask faced a total of 212 shots and now leads all goalies who have played at least three games this playoffs with an average 0.938 save percentage over 13 games played. McKegg was pushed into Rask by Kempfer and the net was dislodged, but the puck crossed the goal line before any contact was made.
