Bruins rest as long season gets even longer

BOSTON (AP) - The Boston Bruins are resting after a night of celebrating their victory over Tampa Bay that put them in the Stanley Cup finals for the first time since 1990.

Players were given the day off Saturday, one day after beating the Lightning 1-0 on Nathan Horton's goal with 7:33 to play.

That gave the Bruins a chance to play for the Cup for the first time since Cam Neely and Ray Bourque lost to Edmonton in five games.

Game 1 against the Canucks is Wednesday in Vancouver, with another game there Saturday. The series returns to Boston for games June 6 and 8. It's already the latest into the spring the Bruins have ever played.

The first casualty of their Stanley Cup run: A "Glee Live!" concert at the TD Garden had to be rescheduled.
