Bruins Vs. Capitals, 2012 NHL Playoffs Game 6 Final Score: Tyler Seguin's Goal In OT Forces Game 7

The Boston Bruins survived elimination with a dramatic 4-3 overtime win over the Washington Capitals in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals.

Tyler Seguin's goal 3:17 sent the series back to Boston for a Game 7.

The loss was a frustrating one for the Capitals who dominated the Bruins for most of the game. Tim Thomas came up big yet again in net for Boston, stopping 36-of-39 shots. Washington also failed to cash in on any of the four power play chances they had in the game.

The Capitals fought back from 2-1 deficit in the first period, and a 3-2 deficit in the third only to come up short in the end. Braden Holtby stopped 27 of the 31 shots he faced in net for the Capitals.

The two teams will meet in the decisive Game 7 on Wednesday.
