It wasn’t easy and, in fact, it looked next to impossible.

But the Boston Bruins have moved past the Toronto Maple Leafs and will now play the New York Rangers in the second round of the playoffs.

The Bruins were down three goals just before the midway point of the third period, but came storming back to beat the Maple Leafs 5-4 in overtime of Game 7 on Monday night.

The Rangers went into Washington and crushed the Capitals by a final score of 5-0 in Game 7, setting up an Original Six match-up with the Bruins in the Eastern Conference semifinal.

The Bruins had a 1-0-2 record against the Rangers during the regular season.

The other second-round series in the East has the Pittsburgh Penguins, the top team in the conference, going up against the scrappy Ottawa Senators.
