B’s Third Period Rally Tops Montreal 5-3

Sunday, May 04, 2014

 

Another game, another rally for the Boston Bruins.  This time the B's finished off the Canadiens 5-3 to even up their best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal series at one game a piece.

The B's jumped out to an early 1-0 lead on a first period goal by Daniel Paille.  However, that lead was shortlived as the Habs scored 3 straight goals in the second and third period to take what appeared to be a commanding two goal lead.

The problem is, that two goal lead was against the NHL's top team which has demonstrated on more than one occassion that they are more than capable of coming back from such deficits.

Starting with Dougie Hamilton's goal at 10:56 of the third period, Boston rattled off four scores in less than 8 minutes against a shell-shocked Carey Price.

Patrice Bergeron and Reilly Smith score the game-tying and go ahead goals respectively before Milan Lucic sealed the deal with an empty-netter with just over a minute to play.

The come-from-behind win evened the series at one game each as the two teams now head to Montreal for games 3 & 4 on Tuesday and Thursday of next week.

NOTES:

-Boston outshot Montreal for the second game in the series 35-28.

-The Habs power play continued to wreak havok on Boston scoring twice in six chances.  Meanwhile, Boston came up emptry on the man advantage going 0-3.

-Patrice Bergeron was the game's #1 star scoring a goal and dishing out an assist.  He had a +3 +/- ratio while on the ice.

-Zedeno Chara was +5 for the Bruins.
