BOSTON -- Cheering fans stood and waved gold and black towels as the Boston Bruins claimed the Presidents Trophy for the NHLs best regular-season record. The celebration will be a lot bigger if the Bruins achieve their ultimate goal, winning the Stanley Cup. "Weve still got to do some work here in order to get the trophy that we all really want," Boston coach Claude Julien said. David Krejci scored two goals, Patrice Bergeron netted his 30th of the season, and Gregory Campbell got his eighth as the Bruins dominated the Buffalo Sabres 4-1 Saturday in a game between teams at opposite ends of the standings. Its the second time the Bruins have won the Presidents Trophy, which gives them home-ice advantage throughout the playoffs, since the award was instituted for the 1985-86 season. The Bruins have 117 points, third most in team history behind 121 in 1970-71 and 119 when they won the Stanley Cup in the 1971-72 season. Buffalos 51 points are tied for its fewest in a season not shortened by a lockout. Each team has one game left. "We need to play a really strong game and feel good about our game going into the playoffs," Krejci said. Boston will end its regular-season schedule at New Jersey on Sunday. Buffalo will finish at home against the New York Islanders. Bostons first-round playoff opponent was still unknown, with Philadelphia, Columbus and Detroit all possibilities. Cody Hodgson scored for the Sabres, but Buffalo sustained another blow in a frustrating, injury-plagued season. Starting goalie Matt Hackett was taken from the ice on a stretcher after Boston defenceman Torey Krug fell on his right leg in the crease with 11:35 left. "It doesnt look good right now," Buffalo coach Ted Nolan said. Hacketts leg wasnt broken, and he was to return with the team to Buffalo to be examined by club medical personnel. He was replaced by Connor Knapp, the seventh goalie to dress for the Sabres this season. He made his NHL debut and allowed Krejcis second goal one minute later. "Some nerves, for sure, especially with the crowd definitely into it," Knapp said. "And theyre on a power play, too." Hoping for another long post-season run after losing last years Stanley Cup finals in six games to the Chicago Blackhawks, the Bruins got back on track after losing four of their previous five games. That followed a streak in which they won 15 of 16. "We were pretty reckless with the puck the last couple games," Krug said. "Thats not something our team wants in our identity." It was more of the same for the Sabres, who lost for the 17th time in 19 games with just 27 goals during that slump. "A good clean bill of health in the summertime (and) well go forward to next year," Nolan said. "Whether we missed the playoffs by one point or we missed it by 30, 60 points, it doesnt matter." The Bruins scored twice in a span of 1:29 late in the first period. Campbell tipped in a pass by Jordan Caron from the left boards at 16:54. Krejci made it 2-0 at 18:23 after Zdeno Charas shot off the backboards ricocheted to him at the left corner of the net. Krejci easily backhanded the puck into the open side. Bergeron made it 3-0 at 11:43 of the third period, taking a pass from the right corner from Brad Marchand and putting a shot from the top of the right circle through Hacketts legs. Tuukka Rask, who leads the NHL with seven shutouts, missed out on another when Hodgson converted a rebound of Marcus Folignos shot at 13:58 of the third period. "My focus has been a little bit (on the playoffs) already," Rask said, "but Ill rest a couple of days and crank it up." Krejci was credited with his 19th goal when his shot off the backboards hit the back of Knapps left skate and went into the net. NOTES: Bruins fourth-line right wing Daniel Paille was helped from the ice after falling hard when he collided with Jake McCabe, who received a major penalty for interference and was ejected with 12:43 left. Paille didnt return, and the Bruins had no update on his condition. ... Besides Hackett, four other Sabres left the game with injuries -- Christian Ehrhoff (concussion), Chris Stewart (leg), Matt DAgostini (lower body), and Brian Flynn (lower body). ... Boston is 14-2-1 in afternoon games with one remaining. ... Hackett is 1-6-1 since being recalled from the AHL on March 17. ... The Bruins were eliminated on home ice in the playoffs the past two seasons, by Chicago last year and by Washington in Game 7 of the opening round in 2012. Emmanuel Lamur Jersey .

Fred Biletnikoff Jersey .com) - Demario Richard posted four touchdowns and Kweishi Brown came up with a key late interception as No.Everton ended Chelseas hopes of silverware this season after knocking them out of the FA Cup in a hotly-contested quarter-final at Goodison Park. Romelu Lukaku did the damage against his former club, breaking the deadlock on Saturday night with a stunning individual strike before putting the tie beyond Chelsea with a second in a frantic final 13 minutes, which also saw Diego Costa and Gareth Barry sent off.So, from Lukaku haunting his former employers to Chelseas season reaching an abrupt end, we ponder five talking points from the game... Lukaku haunts Chelsea Romelu Lukaku celebrates after opening the scoring When Chelsea decided to sell Lukaku - a player who had made just 15 Blues appearances - to Everton in 2014 for £28m, many questioned their reasoning.However, after an inconsistent debut season at Goodison Park, at the end of which Chelsea won a fourth Premier League title, their decision appeared justified.Diego Costa scored with consummate ease last term as Chelsea cantered to the title, but fast forward 12 months and things are very different.Lukakus prolific form this term has coincided with Chelseas capitulation, and their former player dealt the fatal, and arguably most painful, blow to their season with the two match-winning goals on Saturday.His first goal showed exactly how far he has progressed since the Stamford Bridge shackles were let loose.Sumptuous control, strength, pace and agility were all on display as he sent Everton on their way to Wembley in stunning fashion, leaving a trail of smarting Chelsea players lying in his wake.Costa up to old tricks Costa was involved in a number of bust-ups at Goodison Park In recent weeks, weve been treated to Diego Costa at his brilliant best - intensity, directness and, importantly for Chelsea, goals. He treads a fine line when he takes to the field but several incidents at Goodison suggest he crossed that line.The Spaniard reverted back to his old petulant self after being on the receiving end of a painful looking challenge from Gareth Barry on eight minutes.He sought retribution immediately, colliding with the Toffees midfielder to earn his first booking of the game. As referee Michael Oliver brandished the card, Costa spat on the ground near to the official. Costa in bite controversy Diego Costa could face retrospective action after appearing to try and bite Evertons Gareth Barry. He couldnt get the chip off his shoulder, as the rest of his first half was strewn with theatrical appeals for free-kicks and confrontations with opposition players. The half-time break momentarily calmed Costa down, with the striker coming close to breaking the deadlock when his low effort from an acute angle flashed across the face of goal.But things reared to a head once the visitors slipped two goals behind, with Barry in the firing line again. Costa was issued a second yellow for appearing to throw his head towards Barry, who refreshingly did not react, before motioning to bite him on his neck.Costa was extremely unhappy after a challenge from Barry. He has got to control his temper, Peter Taylor, who covered the game on Sky Sports News HQ said.He went in with his chest first, then his face and it looked as though he was thinkingg about biting him.dddddddddddd You cannot be clear if he did bite him, his lips were on his neck... but its not clear. Barry later denied Costa had bitten him.Money well spent? Everton major investor Farhad Moshiri (L) and chairman Bill Kenwright (R) on Saturday Evertons new majority shareholder, Farhad Moshiri, attended his first game at Goodison Park after the Premier League approved his 49.9% share purchase earlier this week - and, on early indication, it looks like money well spent.The British-Iranian investor was on hand to oversee his new side seal their place in a lucrative semi-final at Wembley, and move to within one win of a reappearance in the showpiece final.Hell have no doubt enjoyed the Toffees ability to go toe-to-toe with the champions in a feisty, ill-tempered encounter.Evertons hopes of growing as a club will boil down to their ability to fight on the pitch as well as off it.Saturdays victory proved they can mix it with the best. Could the collaboration with their new shareholder see them do so more consistently?Chelseas dismal season ends Diego Costa walks off the pitch past Guus Hiddink after his red card Hiddinks first spell at Chelsea ended with an FA Cup triumph over Everton in 2009. Seven years on, and despite having nine league games remaining, defeat at Goodison effectively ends their disappointing campaign.As he did in his first spell at Stamford Bridge, the Dutchman has clearly steadied the ship following his second appointment as interim manager.Defeat at home to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League in midweek saw the Blues hopes of silverware rest in the FA Cup, but they were unable to keep such aspirations alive.The reverse on Merseyside saw the Blues eliminated in the quarter-final for the first time since 2007/08, when Barnsley knocked them out en route to the semi-finals, as Hiddink suffered his first defeat in the competition.If they havent already, thoughts will now turn to next season, a season where Chelsea, at present, will have to do without Hiddink, John Terry, European football and any trophies in the cabinet.Martinez answering critics in cup Roberto Martinez responded to recent criticism with another FA Cup clean sheet Roberto Martinezs open and expansive brand of football, when carried out correctly, produces moments like those witnessed on Saturday.Scintillating attacking football was served up at Goodison in front of a raucous crowd who demanded such a performance after their defeat to West Ham last week. Few, if any, would have been disappointed. Evertons cup campaign is in stark contrast to their form in the league - the Toffees are yet to concede a single goal in the FA Cup this season.Martinez even had the luxury of leaving John Stones on the bench until late on as Chelsea were kept at arms length.While Saturdays victory will have been welcomed, the 26 league goals conceded at Goodison continues to rile supporters, with Martinez in the firing line. Hell be hoping that defensive surety can be transferred to the Premier League.
