Video: Boychuk provides late heroics, Bruins-Habs off to OT

May 1, 2014, 10:27 PM EDT

Capping off a tremendous third period, Bruins d-man Johnny Boychuk scored with 1:58 remaining to even the score at three and send Game 1 of the Boston-Montreal series into extra time:

Boychuk’s goal came at the tail end of a wild 20 minute session that saw Boston erase Montreal’s 2-0 lead in a span of 3:46, then saw the most unlikely of goalscorers — Francis Bouillon — register his first playoff goal in six years to give Montreal what looked to be the game-winner.

Until Boychuk played the hero, that is.

The Bruins defenseman, who scored his first goal of the playoffs, was a consistent presence during regulation. He registered two blocked shots, four shots on goal and tied for the team lead with five hits.

Good start to the series, this one.

    Gary Bettman is creaming his pants at this start of the second round. All in all, I don’t mind the new structure. I like having to play within the division until the CF.

    What ze fudge do the Bruins have to do to score?

      Well the first step is to hit the puck with the stick in the direction of an open net.

        Second step Mr Marchand is to not stop the puck from going in with your skate. Bradley misses open nets last series and stops pucks from going in this series.
