The Bruins Get Another Chance In Double Overtime by Momma Gouche

Although the first period between the Montreal Canadiens and the Boston Bruins, on Saturday night, produced some very fast and exciting hockey, no scoring was managed on a combined 22 shots. Both Carey Price and Tim Thomas stood their ground. Montreal looked a little weak in the second and on had only 6 shots. Again there weren’t any goals in the second. Brad Marchand put a wrist shot past Price at 4:33 of the third and the Bruins went up 1-0. Montreal came somewhat alive and Jeff Halpern tied the score at 13:56. There was no more goals in regulation and the game went into overtime. In the first OT both teams played well, but cautious  … so 21 shots again resulted in no goals. The obviously tired players were still skating fast, even having put in 140 minutes of play. It took 9 minutes and 3 seconds for Nathan Horton to become the hero of the game and the Boston Bruins won 2-1. The series is now cut to 3-2 for Montreal. It took 96 shots to produce 3 goals. Montreal is now facing a Must Win to take the series.
