BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Bruins and Washington Capitals played seven one-goal games in their first-round playoff series. That's an NHL record.

No postseason series had ever had even six one-goal games before.

Wednesday night's finale also was the fourth overtime game in the series.

Washington took the lead in the first period when Matt Hendricks tipped John Carlson's shot past Tim Thomas. The Bruins tied it in the second when Tyler Seguin dove under two defenders to sweep a loose puck from the crease into the net.

The third period was scoreless, with the Capitals killing a penalty in the final 3 minutes.
