With Tuukka Rask opting out, Jaroslav Halak got the start for Boston and stopped 29 of 30 shots. Goals from Charlie Coyle and Sean Kuraly put the Bruins ahead 2-0 before Nino Niederreiter cut the deficit to one. Brad Marchand put in the insurance marker in an empty net in the closing minute.

Part of a dynamic duo with Tuukka Rask that captured the Jennings Trophy this season for fewest goals allowed as a team, Jaroslav Halak, 35, made his second start of this postseason in Game 3 after playing against the Flyers in the Round Robin. Prior to this postseason, Halak had last started a playoff game in 2015 with the Islanders when he played the entire seven-game series against the Capitals in the opening round, losing 2-1 in Game 7.

Andrei Svechnikov left Game 3 late in the third period with a lower-body injury after getting tangled up with Zdeno Chara. Svechnikov, 20, has seven points in six playoff game this year.
