David Krejci had two goals and one assist to lead Boston to a 4-3 victory over the visiting Buffalo Sabres in Game 6 of their first-round playoff series on Monday night and put the Bruins in the Eastern Conference semifinals.

Tuukka Rask stopped 27 shots for Boston, which will play either Philadelphia or Pittsburgh in the second round.

It's Boston's second playoff series victory - and first at home - since 1999.

Canadiens 4, Capitals 1: Jaroslav Halak made 53 saves, and Michael Cammalleri scored twice in the first period for host Montreal, which stayed alive with a victory over Washington and forced a Game 7, set for Wednesday, in the first-round series.

Halak made 18 saves in the first, 14 in the second, and 21 in the third. He came within 4:50 of his first playoff shutout. Halak won his second straight start despite the top-seeded Capitals' 54-22 advantage in shots.

Blackhawks 5, Predators 3: Jonathan Toews scored a power-play goal to cap a wild first period, and visiting Chicago held on to beat Nashville and advance to the Western Conference semifinals for the second straight year.
