Haggs: Boston Bruins Put Capitals On Lockdown With Game 4 Win | BHN+



BOSTON – A Stanley Cup playoff series isn’t actually over until the Boston Bruins collect four wins, obviously.

But the Boston Bruins have now locked a Ted DiBiase Million Dollar Dream sleeper hold on the Washington Capitals in their first round series with the Caps on the brink of elimination. After winning an emotional double-overtime Game 3 where the Washington Capitals crumbled with a key mental mistake losing them the game, the Boston Bruins were expecting a desperate, high-level effort from the Capitals.

Instead, the Bruins essentially dominated the entire 60-minute effort in the most one-sided game of the series with a 4-1 victory over the Capitals on Friday night to take a 3-to-1 lead in the best-of-seven series. The B’s outshot the Capitals by a 37-20 margin, finished on three power play goals in a special teams domination and responded emotionally after rugged, veteran defenseman Kevan Miller was knocked out of the game due to a violent, late second period hit from Dmitry Orlov that sent him to the hospital.

To say it galvanized the B’s would be an understatement.
