Bruins Game 7 score update 4/25/12

Sadly, the reigning Stanley Cup Champions, the Boston Bruins, were defeated in Game 7 by the Washington Capitals with the winning shot by Joel Ward. 2-1 is the ending score. Capitals are advancing, but two other Game 7s will be played until then no idea who the Capitals will be playing in the next series. Wish the Bruins were advancing, but great game regardless.

It’s the end of regulation and this Game 7 is going into sudden death overtime.

Second period: Tyler Seguin dove to push the puck into the goal as it laid between the goal and the goalie’s back, which tied up the score 1-1 at 14:27.

First period: John Carlson assisted by Jason Chimera of the Washington Capitals shot a goal at 11:23 into the upper right corner of the Bruins’ goal to give the Capitals the 1-0 lead.

Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas has big-game experience: He is 3-2 with a 2.04 goals-against average in Game 7s.

The defending Stanley Cup Champions look to advance in the playoffs tonight with a win at home in TD Garden against the Capitals. The Bruins had an impressive win last game on Sunday to hold on for the inevitable tiebreaker. The Bruins can totally take the series with their Game 7 experience. Last season they won three Game 7s that lead them to be Stanley Cup Champions. They beat the Montreal Canadiens in overtime, then defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning in a 1-0 shutout, and steamrolled the Canucks on their home turf, Rogers Arena, in a spectacular 4-0 shutout. During that game, Tim Thomas was stellar and had 37 saves, while Bergeron, Marchand, and Luongo scored the four goals to ruin the Canucks chance to claim the Stanley Cup.

Game 7 starts at 7.30pm! Watch the thrilling Game 7 on CBC, RDS, NBCSN, or NESN(HD). Or you may listen to the game on 98.5 The Sports Hub.

Bruins and Sox both look to bounce back after disappointing losses yesterday afternoon

Bruins lost Game 5 yesterday to the Capitals when the Capitals scored their go-ahead goal late in the third period on a power play. The Sox similarly lost their game in late innings as the bullpen imploded and gave up a whooping fourteen runs in just two innings alone. Both teams need a win desperately. The Bruins need one in order not to avoid elimination in Game 6 this afternoon from the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Red Sox need one after losing six straight home games to both the Texas Rangers and their rivals the New York Yankees. In addition, Bobby Valentine is skidding on thin ice with the Sox’s collapse yesterday. He received a huge amount of boos from the Fenway crowd each time he replaced a pitcher. It’s a gloomy day here in Boston with the likelihood of rain, hopefully so sun will come out and brighten up these rather depressing circumstances.

Watch the Bruins @ 3.00pm on NBC, RDS, CBC or listen to them on 98.5 The Sports Hub.

Watch the Red Sox @ 8.05pm on ESPN or listen to the game on NYY: WCBS 880, WADO 1280; BOS: WEEI 93.7 FM/850 AM, WWZN 1510.
