Bruins top 10 games of 2013: Playoffs No.5

Last week Bruins Daily took a look at some of the best Bruins games of the 2013 regular season. This week we will focus on the top five games of the 2013 playoffs.

Today we take a look at the Bruins’ fifth best playoff game of 2013.

Eastern Conference Finals Game 4: Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Boston Bruins

The Bruins entered Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals with a unexpected three games to none series lead as they looked to punch a ticket to the Stanley Cup Final for the second time in three seasons.

Goals were hard to come by in this one as both teams were clearly showing the effects of their double overtime game just two nights prior. Five minutes into a scoreless third period the Bruins would get on the board and lucky enough for them it was the only goal they would need.

Defenseman Adam McQuaid played the role of hero on this night as his point shot would deflect off Jarome Iginla and past Tomas Vokoun.

“I actually came on for a change, so I was kind of looking back to make sure there was no one behind me on the change,” McQuaid said about his game-winner. “Marshy [Brad Marchand], he kind of stopped up and made a nice pass to me and I just tried to get a shot on net and luckily it went in.”

Tuukka Rask made 26 saves for his second shutout of the series.

Here are the game highlights:
