Bruins Back in Business

The Bruins were in overtime against a team they had not beaten in 13 previous tries. A loss would mean not only a 14th consecutive defeat, but a 3-0 series defecit in the opening round of the playoffs. The Bruins rose up, however, and beat the Montreal Canadiens 2-1 in overtime Sunday night to get back in the series.

Marc Savard scored the game-winner in overtime in front of a excited crowd at the TD Banknorth Garden. The Bruins are still in the series. If not for a horrible tripping call against the Bruins in Game 2, they could be up 2-1 in the series. But, they will take a 2-1 defecit over a 3-0 defecit any day.

Tim Thomas was solid in net, allowing only one goal while stopping 27 shots. Coach Julien was pleased with his effort:

“I think Timmy’s been getting better here as the series goes on. In my mind, he stole he show a number of times with some of those saves he made.”

Game 4 is set for Tuesday as the Bruins will look to even the series at 2-2.
