Jarome Iginla potted the empty netter that sealed the deal for Boston.

I have to drive to Montreal tonight, so let's make this a quick one.

Extra skater stats!

The Good Stuff:

- Rasky business, holy crap. The Red Wings put 33 shots on goal and Tuukka only managed to not stop two of them, both garbage goals - one from Datsyuk and one from Zetterberg. Which really begs the question: what would the Red Wings be without those two?

- Excellent to see the first line come to life. Milan Lucic's goal in the third period was great.

- If only I had a gif. Loui Eriksson's goal, from Dougie and Tuukka, was pretty much the best thing since sliced bread. Dougie's work on that goal was beautiful and amazing and If it were a thing I could hug, I would hug it.

- Tuukka Rask's save percentage after five games? 0.961. His GAA is 1.16. Nice.

- Zdeno Chara's PPG yeahhhhh

The Bad Stuff:

- Letting Detroit back in the game with five minutes to go was pretty uncool.

- Brad Marchand losing his temper towards the end was....unproductive.

The Interesting:

- Tuukka Rask had more points than Gustav Nyquist this round. Only five Red Wings finished the series with more points than our GOALIE. Hilarious.
