Still Alive, Seguin Scored in OT

Team 1 2 3 OT Total
Bruins 2 0 1 1 4
Capitals 1 1 1 0 3

(Hand over heart) tick, tick, tick. OK, I’m still alive. I thought for a second there I was going to have a heart attack. Got to give credit to this club, when they have their nuts pinned to the wall they always seem to find a way to get out of it and keep the series going.

In a win or go home situation in Game 6 in Washington the Bruins came out on top 4-3 in overtime on a Tyler Seguin goal.

Rich Peverley (3) the Bruins offensive threat this series got the scoring started when he netted a goal 5:56 into the first period.

After Mike Green tied the game 1-1, the Bruins did the unthinkable. David Krejci (1) tipped a puck past Holtby for get this, A POWER PLAY GOAL. I know, I couldn’t believe it myself.

When it looked like the Bruins were going to get out of the second period hanging on to their 2-1 lead, Jason Chimera, scored with 42 seconds left in the period. After he knocked Marchand down at the blue line on a non-call play to send the Caps down the ice on an odd-man rush.

The Bruins put themselves ahead in the third when, after a shot on goal there was a puck loose in the slot for non other than Andrew Ference (1) to shelf and give the Bruins the lead. Go ahead Andy, do your thing

He didn’t really do that, well this year he didn’t…yet.

Don’t worry Bruins fans, the team kept the blood pressure up when Ovechkin ripped a wrist shot from the top of the circle beating Timmy five-hole (can’t go a game without seeing him) to tie the game 3-3.

So here we are, 3-3 in overtime with the season on the line. It took the Bruins just 3 shots on goal in overtime to get what they needed. Seguin (1) beat Holtby 3:17 into the overtime period.

So Tyler, what were you trying to do on that goal? (His thoughts start at 1:40)
