BOSTON (WWLP) – The Boston Bruins defeated the Detroit Red Wings, in overtime, in the fourth game of their Eastern Conference playoff match-up. The Bruins lead the series 3-1.

The game started at 8:00 p.m. at the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit Michigan.

FINAL SCORE: Boston Bruins 3, Detroit Red Wings 2, Overtime

The Bruins had a 3-0 win over the Red Wings in Game 3, and took the lead in the series, making it 2-1. The Bruins had tied the series in Game 2 after the Red Wings took Game 1 and the home field advantage.

These two teams haven’t met in the playoffs since 1957. The Bruins enter the first round of the playoffs as the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference, while the Red Wings clawed their way into the No. 8 seed.

However, during the 2013-2014 NHL Regular Season, the Red Wings won 3 of 4 games from the Bruins, including two one-goal victories. So winning the first round will not necessarily be easy for the Bruins.

The Bruins hope to make it back to the Stanley Cup Championship after losing a heart breaking loss to the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 6 last season. If not for two quick goals from the Blackhawks within seconds of each other, in the final quarter, Bruins might have had a chance to win it all by forcing a Game 7.
