This is a very improbable Original Six matchup in the Eastern Conference semifinals.

The Bruins were down by three goals midway through the third period, and all they had to do was register a comeback for the ages to eliminate the heartbroken Toronto Maple Leafs in overtime of the seventh game.

Patrice Bergeron scored the tying goal in the final minute and the winning goal in overtime for the 5-4 win.

At the same time, the New York Rangers had to break serve on the road after the home team had won the first six games in the series.
