Video: Adam McQuaid gives Boston 1-0 lead

Jun 7, 2013, 10:25 PM EDT

The Boston Bruins have now scored the first goal of all four games in the 2013 Eastern Conference finals, although the one that made it 1-0 in Game 4 on Friday took longer than the others.

After two scoreless periods, the Bruins caught the Pittsburgh Penguins in a line change, opening the door for this great shot by defenseman Adam McQuaid:

(Brad Marchand deserves big kudos for showing great instincts on his ninth assist of the playoffs too, obviously.)

Every other 1-0 goal came in the first period of contests, but the Bruins haven’t trailed the Pittsburgh Penguins for a single second of this third-round series. That might be the most impressive stat of the B’s deep 2013 playoff run.

We’ll see if they can finish the job in a third period where time is rapidly running out for Pittsburgh.

McQuaid was a recipient of a controversial Matt Cooke hit in Game 1 of this series, so it must feel like sweet vengeance for the 26-year-old.

    So a team from Boston/NE beats another Pitt team in a conference championship game.
    2 goals in 4 games that’s just bad!

    1)As a Ranger fan, I am glad to see the Bruins, who knocked out my team, advance to the Finals. They are playing just great and deserve to be there.
    2)Does anyone else find it ironic that Jerome Iginla, the player who chose to reneg on the trade to Boston to play with Cindy and Goono to have a better chance to win the Cup is the one who deflects the game winning goal (or game losing goal in his case) into his own net? I call that Karma.

    Lemme say, that was a goal-scorer’s shot from McQuaid. Yes it was deflected, but it was better than most of what McQuaid does offensively.
