A great game ended with a greast goal.
At least the agony was not prolonged.
Matt Fraser, recalled from Boston's AHL team in Providence, scored Game 4's only goal 1:19 into Overtime.
It came off a mad scramble as Carey Price lost track of a puck that bounced off the end boards out in front.
It was a bitter loss for the Canadiens, who peppered Tuukka Rask with 33 shots.
Boston had three shots in OT, the Canadiens none.
Who the #$%^ is Matt Fraser?
Barely a minute into Overtime, the Bruins' call-up – playing his first playoff game – slipped the puck past Carey Price for the only goal of Game 4.
Best game of the series
No mistakes by either team.
The whole third period felt like Overtime.
Canadiens had a 14-7 shot advantage, 33-32 on the game.
Carey Price got more help from his posts on a Reilly Smith chance.
First goal wins it?
Boston outshot the Canadiens 12-9 in the second period.
Each team had a power-play.
Brian Gionta was sent in alone but he was stopped by Tuukka Rask.
VERY tense game.
And we know who owns the third period.
You can tell it's a biggie
Very tight 20 minutes.
Boston outshot the Canadiens 12-10.
HIO is experiencing tech problems, for which we apologize.
The computer geeks are on it.
It could get loud ... and nasty
Fearless prediction: A rockin', rollin' Thursday night at the Bell Centre.
Down 2-1 in the series, Boston will come out thumpin' and jumpin'. The Canadiens' ability to deal with early pressure could be the key to success in what shapes up as the pivotal game of the series.
Carey Price won't be nervous. Neither will P.K. Subban.
Price has been better than Tuukka Rask. P.K. has outshone Norris Trophy finalist Zdeno Chara.
And Michel Therrien has taken advantage of home ice to get the players he wants on he ice for critical situations, notably defensive zone faceoffs.
Claude Julien, no slouch in the strategy department, doubtless has cooked up some adjustments for Game 4.
It should be a beauty.
