TORONTO -- Almost lost in the Bruins' 4-3 overtime win over the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinal series Wednesday night at Air Canada Centre was the fact that Boston scored a pair of power-play goals.
David Krejci, who finished the night with a hat trick, and Patrice Bergeron both scored with the man-advantage. Overall, the Bruins went 2-for-5 in the game and are 3-for-14 in the series.
"My goal was off the breakout, kind of a broken play," Krejci said. "Bergy's goal was a perfect example of just shooting the puck and [Milan Lucic] was doing a good job in front of the net and making some traffic. We got two on the PP tonight and that was huge and hopefully it's going to get our PP going."
Boston's power play finished the regular season ranked 25th in the NHL. The Bruins were only 18-for-122 during the lockout-shortened, 48-game season.
