Tuukka Rask kicked out 26 of 29 shots in a 3-2 overtime loss to Ottawa in Game 6 on Sunday.
Rask faced two power-play shots in this contest and both of them got past him. The second of those power-play goals was also the overtime winner. With that, the Boston Bruins have been eliminated from the 2017 playoffs in the first round. Rask
Clarke MacArthur netted the overtime winner in Ottawa's 3-2 victory against Boston in Game 6 Sunday afternoon.
With that, Ottawa has eliminated Boston and advanced to the second round where the Senators will face the New York Rangers. Bobby Ryan scored a goal and registered an assist for Ottawa, giving him seven points in six postseason contests. Kyle Turris netted Ottawa's other goal on Sunday. Derick Brassard assisted on two of the Senators' three markers. He had two goals and eight points in the first round.
Patrice Bergeron scored a goal in Boston's 3-2 overtime loss to Ottawa in Game 6 Sunday afternoon.
Bergeron's third period goal tied the game and eventually forced overtime, but in the end it wasn't even to prevent the Bruins from being eliminated. Drew Stafford netted Boston's other goal. Brad Marchand assisted on both of Boston's markers, giving him four points in six playoff games this year.
Alexey Marchenko and Ben Smith are projected to remain scratched for Game 6 against Washington on Sunday.
Unfortunately, this would mark six out of six games on the pine for both players this postseason. Josh Leivo will also join them in the press box.
Taylor Chorney and Paul Carey are projected to be scratched for Game 6 against Toronto on Sunday.
The oft-scratched Chorney hasn't played yet in the postseason, after dressing for 18 games in the regular season. Carey saw just six games of action himself, but has been relegated to little more than a Black Ace for Washington.
Braden Holtby will be in net on Sunday for Game 6 against Toronto.
One more win and it's on to the next round for Holtby and the Capitals. He's allowed 15 goals and sports a .915 save percentage this series, but will merely have to hold serve to finish the upstart Leafs.
Frederik Andersen will be in net for Game 6 on Sunday against the Capitals.
Andersen and the Maple Leafs come into the match facing elimination. He's allowed 16 goals against through the first five games with a mere .909 save percentage as well. Suffice it to say, there isn't much room left for error.
Cam Fowler (knee) participated in Sunday's practice.
Fowler said afterwards that he feels good. He's questionable for Game 1 of the second round after missing the Ducks' opening series.
