Bruins beat Canadiens 1-0 in OT to tie playoff series at two

Boston Bruins left wing Milan Lucic (17) battles for the puck with Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban (76) in front of Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price (31) during third period NHL playoff hockey action Thursday, May 8, 2014 in Montreal.


MONTREAL – Matt Fraser scored in overtime as the Boston Bruins shut out the Montreal Canadiens 1-0 to tie their playoff series at two.

Fraser got a stick on a rebound just 1:19 into OT after Montreal goaltender Carey Price lost the puck in front of the net.

The series now returns to Boston for Game 5 on Saturday.

Price and Tuukka Rask were each game for a goaltending duel. Price finished with 34 saves for Montreal while Rask stopped 33 for Boston.

Neither team blinked in regulation, with a tight-checking first period followed by an uneventful second.

Montreal went on the attack in the third, outshooting the Bruins 14-7, but the Canadiens couldn’t solve Rask.
