The Boston Bruins and New York Rangers took the ice in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals on Saturday afternoon from the TD Garden in Boston. The Bruins entered the game in front of their home crowd needing just one win to clinch their spot in the Eastern Conference finals and send the Rangers packing.

In the first period New York jumped out to an early lead thanks to a goal by Dan Girardi, but that all changed in the second period when Boston came out on fire and netted goals by Gregory Campbell and Torey Krug to get the 2-1 lead and take control of the game heading in to the final period.

In the third period, the Bruins extended their lead to 3-1 with a late goal by Campbell that clinched the win and sent the Rangers out of the NHL postseason.

With the win, the Bruins advance to the next round where they will face the Pittsburgh Penguins for a chance at making it to the Stanley Cup finals.
