The Boston Bruins knocked off the Detroit Red Wings in Game 5 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series by a 4-2 score, winning the series by a 4-1 count.

Loui Eriksson scored a power-play goal to get the Bruins off and running in the first period, but the Red Wings tied up the game in the second period on a power-play goal from Pavel Datsyuk.

Zdeno Chara took lead back for the Bruins scoring with under four seconds left in the second period to give the Bruins a 2-1 lead heading into the second intermission.

Milan Lucic added what appeared to be an insurance goal in the third period to give the Bruins a 3-1 lead, but Henrik Zetterberg cut the Boston lead to one with just four minutes remaining.

The Bruins finally sealed the deal with an empty-net goal with under a minute remaining and the Boston Bruins advance to take on the Montreal Canadiens in the second round.

Bruins 4, Red Wings 2. Final.
