Chris Kelly had other plans.

Just 1:18 into overtime, Kelly scored the Bruins’ first and only goal of the game to seal the victory and take the 1-0 series lead for Boston.

Capitals will present challenges for Bruins

Everyone is picking the Boston Bruins over the Washington Capitals in the first round of the playoffs. Almost unanimously, in fact.

The reason behind each of these picks is the same, too—the Capitals, essentially, aren’t the same feared team they were in years past. If you factor in Washington’s ho-hum record during the regular season and the fact that their goaltending situation is a sort of carousel that would make the Philadelphia Flyers blush, than I guess it would make sense to pick the Bruins over the Capitals.

Me? I’m not sold yet. I might not be sold at all, actually.
