After thirteen losses in a row versus the Montreal Canadiens, the Boston Bruins have finally won a game versus their arch-rivals and broke the curse, winning in overtime, 2-1.
A goaltender duel was presented to the fans at the TD Banknorth Garden in Boston yesterday. Both Tim Thomas and Carey Price have played a solid game as they only allowed a single goal each during regulation.
The Bruins scored first in this one during the first period with a goal from the young 19-year old Milan Lucic. The Canadiens replied during the second period when Tom Kostopoulos slipped a puck under Tim Thomas to even up the score.
The regulation ended with a 1-1 tie and an overtime period was necessary for the second game in a row. Halfway into the first overtime period, Marc Savard ended the contest with his first goal of the playoffs.
Final score: Boston Bruins 2 - Montreal Canadiens 1 (overtime) (Montreal leads the series by 2-1)
