Tim Thomas was invisible in last year's playoffs, never called on to stop a Flyers' comeback from three games down that knocked the Bruins out of the Eastern Conference semifinals. But only injury could keep Thomas out of Boston's net this postseason. Thomas rebounded from offseason hip surgery and won 35 games, had nine shutouts and is one of three finalists for the Vezina Trophy. He's played every minute of Boston's postseason run, in sharp contrast to the Flyers' games of goalie roulette.

BOSTON - The Prince of Wales trophy sat untouched on a table in the middle of the ice. It's not the one that Zdeno Chara is hoping to take for a skate. Instead, the Boston Bruins captain waved his teammates over to pose for a picture. "I liked the touch that Zee had, bringing the group around the trophy," general manager Peter Chiarelli said Saturday, a day after the Bruins beat Tampa Bay, 1-0, in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals to earn a chance to play for the Stanley Cup. Tim Thomas stopped 24 shots for his third career playoff shutout - his second of the conference finals - and Nathan Horton deflected a pass from David Krejci into the net with 7 minutes, 33 seconds left for the only goal.

The Flyers will try to avenge one of their ugliest losses of the season Sunday afternoon when they host arguably the NHL's best team, the Boston Bruins. Boston is on a 14-0-1 run and hasn't lost a road game in regulation since Jan. 9, a 4-2 defeat in Los Angeles. The Bruins scored three power-play goals, chased starter Flyers goalie Steve Mason, and rolled to a 6-1 win when the teams met at the Wells Fargo Center on Jan. 25. "Obviously our last game against them wasn't as planned," captain Claude Giroux said.

BOSTON - The Flyers never tried to hide it. They knew what a win in Boston on Saturday afternoon would mean to their playoff chances. It would mean two critical points against the team with the inside track to the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. In their bid to catch Boston, the Flyers also must hurdle Florida and Ottawa, and the Bruins and Senators each carry two games in hand. The Flyers had the lead late in regulation at TD Garden, but the Bruins tied it with 14.1 seconds to play before winning, 3-2, in overtime.

If there is such a thing as a satisfying loss, the Flyers experienced it Sunday afternoon at the reverberating Wells Fargo Center. The Flyers dropped a 4-3 shootout decision to Boston, but they scored a late goal in regulation to salvage a point - and they outplayed the best-in-the-NHL Bruins for a good part of the game, outshooting them, 52-30. "I think this was a good proving point," said goalie Steve Mason, who allowed a soft goal to give the Bruins a 3-2 second-period lead, then redeemed himself with several strong saves the rest of the way. "I thought we carried the play through the majority of the game.

Vinny Lecavalier scored the 400th and 401st goals of his career Sunday, but the bigger news is the way he has become rejuvenated since he was demoted to the fourth line on Friday. In those two games, he has a total of three goals and 12 shots while winning 63.2 percent (12 of 19) of his faceoffs. Lecavalier's rebirth has everything to do with the fact that he was moved from left wing back to his natural position: center. "It felt great. It's just more of a moving game," Lecavalier said after helping the Flyers salvage a point with a hard-fought 4-3 shootout loss to powerful Boston on Sunday.

CHICAGO - Patrick Kane and the Chicago Blackhawks have that look again, and another Stanley Cup is within reach. Kane scored two goals, Corey Crawford made 24 saves and the Blackhawks beat the Boston Bruins, 3-1, on Saturday night to take a three-games-to-two lead in the Finals. Kane had a terrific postseason when Chicago won it all in 2010, including the winning score in a 4-3 overtime victory in Philadelphia that secured the title. Now he's picking up steam as the Blackhawks move closer to another championship, collecting seven goals in the last seven games.

CHICAGO - So much for all the talk about the impenetrable goalies, and forget about those lane-clogging defensemen. It was all about the offense in Game 4, and the hangover could extend into the final three games of the deadlocked Stanley Cup finals. Chicago's 6-5 overtime victory at Boston on Wednesday night was the highest-scoring game in this year's NHL playoffs. There were breakaways, rebounds, long slap shots and tips. Eleven goals in all, coming from all over the ice. It all raises questions about how the remainder of this compelling series, deadlocked at 2-2, will look.

BOSTON - Tuukka Rask shut out the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals on Monday night and got enough help from the Bruins' offense to do it without another exhausting overtime. After playing four extra periods in the first two games, the Bruins made an early night of it with second-period goals by Daniel Paille and Patrice Bergeron to win, 2-0, and take a two-games-to-none lead in the Stanley Cup Finals. "A win is a win. We'll take a win any day," said Rask, who stopped 28 shots for his third shutout of the 2013 playoffs.

COREY CRAWFORD was in the stands when Patrick Kane slammed home the goal that secured the Stanley Cup for the Chicago Blackhawks in 2010. A year later, Tuukka Rask was just a practice player when Tim Thomas led the Boston Bruins to the title. Fast forward to tonight at the United Center, and Crawford and Rask will be in goal when the Blackhawks host the Bruins in Game 1 of the Cup finals. It's been a long road, but that little taste of the Stanley Cup turned into much more for two of the most important players for this series.
