Canadiens Vs. Bruins Final Score: Nathan Horton Overtime Goal Gives Boston Series Win

The Boston Bruins are through to the second round of the NHL's Stanley Cup Playoffs after defeating the Montreal Canadiens in overtime, thanks to a great goal by Nathan Horton. With just over six minutes gone in the first overtime, Horton got the puck uncovered just inside of the blue line and ripped a shot, beating Carey Price glove side and bulging the back of the net, giving Boston a win by the final score of 4-3, taking the series by four games to three.

it looked as if there might have been a deflection that allowed the Bruins to score, but in any event, it was a great shot by Horton to give his team the victory. Boston will now be facing the Philadelphia Flyers in the second round, as whoever advances from the Pittsburgh Penguins-Tampa Bay Lightning game will be the lowest seed remaining in the playoffs, and as a result, will face the Washington Capitals.
