Boston goaltender Tuukka Rask stopped 134 of 136 shots by a team that averaged 4.27 goals a game in its first two playoff series.
There's a dry erase board in the Pittsburgh Penguins' dressing room coach Dan Bylsma uses to remind his players about where they stand in their bid for a Stanley Cup.

Hendricks had six fighting majors through the Caps' first 27 games, more than the rest of his teammates combined. He fought twice Saturday at the Boston Bruins in a game that underscored how much this team needs Hendricks to answer the bell when opponents take liberties.
The Capitals were bruised and battered after the whistles and between them got blown out of the building 4-1 by the Bruins. Goaded into fights and involved in a lot of pushing and shoving, they fell into the trap of playing Boston's physical style.
It wasn't bad enough that the Washington Capitals skated a player short for much of the game. It wasn't bad enough that they lost starting goaltender Tomas Vokoun to injury in the first period.

The Stanley Cup finals are headed back to Vancouver, all tied up two games apiece.
