Boston Bruins-6 Pittsburgh Penguins-1 (Boston leads the series 2-0)

The Bruins scored 20 seconds into the contest and chased Tomas Vokoun before the end of the period before taking a 2-0 series lead back home to Beantown.  If you’re a Penguins fan history can help ease the pain a little, The last Eastern Conference team to trail 0-2 and comeback to win was in 1991 when the Penguins came back to defeat the Bruins and advance to the Stanley Cup Finals.
