In Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, the pressure was all on the New York Rangers, with the Boston Bruins owning a 3-0 series lead. But the Rangers came through with a 4-3, overtime win, narrowing the gap to 3-1 and forcing a pivotal Game 5 in Boston.

With the Bruins unable to complete the sweep on Thursday night, the pressure in the series has shifted. After the game on Comcast Sportsnet's Press Pass, Bruins insider Joe Haggerty drew comparisons between this Game 4 loss and the Bruins' Game 4 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers back in 2010, which was the beginning of one of the most monumental collapses in NHL postseason history. The Rangers have life after getting their first win of the series, and that puts the pressure back on the Bruins heading into Game 5 in Boston.

Check out the video above for all of Haggerty's thoughts and let us know which team you think will be under more pressure in Game 5 in the comment box below.
