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.
