Bruins top 10 games of 2013: Playoffs No. 2

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’ second best playoff game of 2013.

Boston Bruins vs. Pittsburgh Penguins: Game 3, Eastern Conference Finals

It was one of those games that if your friend or father was not watching you’d pick up the phone to tell them to turn on the TV because they were missing an instant classic.

After back-to-back wins in Pittsburgh to take a 2-0 series lead in the Eastern Conference Finals, the Bruins looked to take a commanding 3-0 series lead against the heavily favorited Penguins. Thanks to a double-overtime thrilling win off the stick of Patrice Bergeron, the Bruins did exactly that.

Before many fans found their ways to their seats, David Krejci put the Bruins on the board just 1:42 into the opening frame. The score held still until Chris Kunitz notched the tying goal midway through the second period.

After one overtime passed without a tally, the score remained tied deep into a second overtime until Bergeron beat his man to the spot, received a nifty pass from winger Brad Marchand and then tipped the puck past Vokoun lifting the B’s to an unthinkable 3-0 series lead and a win away from the Stanley Cup Final.

“Everyone is doing everything in order to get the success and to get the wins, and it doesn’t matter what it is and who it is,” Bergeron said.

Tuukka Rask’s performance cannot be forgotten in this instant classic as Rask stopped 53 shots for the Black and Gold.
