Daniel Briere scores thanks to Zdeno Chara own goal

Plays like this are a big reason why the Boston Bruins won't be playing for the Stanley Cup again this season.

Montreal Canadiens forward Daniel Briere has developed quite a reputation for himself for being a big-game performer, and with 51 goals in 117 career postseason games entering play on Wednesday it's not hard to see why.

He continued to put up numbers in the Canadiens' 3-1 Game 7 win in Boston to help his team advance to the Eastern Conference Final and upset the Presidents' Trophy winning Bruins.

After assisting on Dale Weise's first period goal, Briere all but put an end to the Bruins' season late in the third period when he scored his second goal of the playoffs. And he received a bit of an assist from Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara who just happened to have his foot in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The Bruins had been pushing the play up until that and had numerous chances to tie the game only to be shut down by Carey Price.

The Canadiens ended up scoring eight of the last nine goals in the series on their way to wins in Games 6 and 7. It's their first trip to the conference final since the 2009-10 playoffs when they rode Jaroslav Halak to the NHL's final four.
