Matt Fraser scores overtime winner in playoff debut

The Tyler Seguin trade pays off for Boston.

A bounce finally went the Boston Bruins' way, and it was recent call-up Matt Fraser, playing in his first NHL playoff game, who was in the right spot to take advantage of it.

After hitting a couple of posts for the second game in a row, that random bounce off the glass and ensuing pile-up in front of Carey Price resulted in Fraser getting just enough of the puck to push it over the line to give the Bruins a 1-0 win and send the series back to Boston tied at two.

The Bruins acquired Fraser in July in the blockbuster trade that sent Tyler Seguin to the Dallas Stars in exchange for Loui Eriksson and Reilly Smith.

Fraser had scored just three goals in 27 career games before scoring on Thursday.
