Bruins Take 3-0 Series Lead

Chris Wagner and Brad Marchand scored 5:07 apart in the second period, and the Boston Bruins beat the Carolina Hurricanes 2-1 to take a 3-0 lead in the NHL Eastern Conference Final.

Tuukka Rask stopped 35 shots for the Bruins, who have won six straight post-season games for the first time since 1978.

They are one victory away from their third Stanley Cup Final appearance in nine years.

Boston will go for the sweep on Thursday night.

Calvin de Haan scored and Curtis McElhinney made 29 saves for the Hurricanes.

Only four teams in NHL history have ever rallied to win a series they trailed 3-0, and none since Los Angeles in 2014.
