Game 7 in LA as the Bruins try to comeback from a 3-1 deficit and the Kings try and avoid another playoff failure.

No scoring in the 1st period. Both teams with 2 GRs each. Note: Montoya has stopped 18 GRs in a row now in LA.

2nd period see the home team get on the board as Alexander Semin scores A GR GOAL FINALLY!!!
It ends up being the only goal in the period as Greiss stops all 3 GRs from Boston in the 2nd period. Greiss also stopped Demers (1-5) and Shattenkirk (1-12) to keep the Kings up by 1.

As the 3rd period gets underway, Shea Webers gets a 1-14 chance at 3:39 but it is denied by Montoya.
Corey Perry ties the game at 1-1 at the 7:39 mark.
Fast forward to the last 1:54 of the game and Malkin has a breakaway….GR….save by Greiss!
With less than a minute to go, Patrick Kane has the puck on his stick and coughs it up, Vanek is in GR, SCORE!!!!! Boston takes a 2-1 lead with 39 seconds to go.
LA loses the draw and Boston skates away with a thrilling come from behind 3rd period win and clinch the series 4-3.

Congrats to Bob and the Bruins as they move on to the semi finals.

The Kings scored only 7 goals in 4 home games and Thomas Greiss had a .895 SP on home ice. Hence, the 1-3 record in a very disappointing end to a promising season.
