Canadiens Vs. Bruins, Game 7: Montreal Comes Back To Force Overtime

The Montreal Canadiens, despite being generally outplayed, have forced overtime in Game 7 against the Boston Bruins. Once again, special teams has been Boston's undoing, as they have failed to convert on either of their power plays, while all three of Montreal's goals have come on special teams. The Habs' first goal was on the power play, their second goal was shorthanded, and their third goal, at the very end of the third period, came on the power play once again.

P.K. Subban was the hero, scoring an absolute ripper on a power play, hitting the top shelf with a slapshot. His goal came with less than two minutes to go in the period, tying the game and sending it into OT. Boston almost spoiled the party on a couple of occasions, but Carey Price has been brilliant once again.

The Habs needed that goal from Subban thanks to Chris Kelly's goal for Boston, scored halfway through the third period. Incredibly, despite the fact that both teams have scored three goals, both goalies have been absolutely outstanding.

For about half of the third period, the Habs have been without Jeff Halpern, who appeared to have sustained a concussion from a hit by Andrew Ference. Ference was not penalized on the play.
