Anthony Travalgia - Ugly effort in Game 2 puts Hurricanes in familiar position

Anthony Travalgia - Ugly effort in Game 2 puts Hurricanes in familiar position

So maybe it's no surprise Boston has won the first two games of the best-of-seven Eastern Conference final series with Game 3 coming up Tuesday night in Raleigh - where the Hurricanes are unbeaten in the playoffs. But count on Carolina doing everything in its power to flip the script on Boston and ensure this spectacular run doesn't come up short of the Stanley Cup final. And you better bring your best or else you can get embarrassed if you're in somebody else's building, if you don't bring intensity and bring you're A game, in the playoffs even more so.

"As the series went on, they kind of felt like they needed to do that", Rask said.

DENVER (AP) -Gabriel Landeskog scored 2:32 into overtime after Colorado squandered a late lead in regulation and the Avalanche beat San Jose to force a decisive Game 7 in their Western Conference semifinal series.

Boston will now face the Carolina Hurricanes in the Eastern Conference final. The skating ability of Torey Krug has allowed him to be in line with the opponent and find open ice to get the Boston goal scorers the puck when they need it most.

One of those older players who knows how to keep the emotions in check is David Backes.

The Bruins power play comes into Game 3 red hot having gone 2-for-2 in Game 2 after going 2-for-5 in Game 1 and changing the game by scoring both power-play goals in the third period after trailing 2-1 through 40 minutes.

It's a decision that New York Islanders head coach Barry Trotz didn't make - but should have - after being down 2-0 to the Hurricanes in Round Two.

On top of a lack of shots on Rask for half the contest, the Hurricanes were sloppy with the puck, allowing the Bruins to have the majority of quality puck possession time, despite the 'Canes winning the Corsi battle at 51.9%. It's like having their game thrown right back at them because typically they are the aggressors, the team forechecking relentlessly. Based on what we've seen in the first two games, I have to side with Boston until they give me a reason to think otherwise. We've had to sacrifice to win some games against some really good teams.

That led to a couple of Bruins' power play goals in the third - Johansson's that tied it and Patrice Bergeron's go-ahead goal. "If we don't score, we have to get some momentum off it", Carolina forward Teuvo Teravainen said.

"Yeah, we talked about it". And that is comforting because guys know it can happen.

The Carolina Hurricanes are in an 0-2 hole after a 6-2 loss to the Boston Bruins on Sunday, and captain Justin Williams dropped a pretty epic post game quote about how his team can climb out of it.
