The Boston Bruins have met the Montreal Canadiens in a Game 5 during the playoffs 24 times. Nineteen of those times the winner of Game 5 has gone on to take the series.
The Bruins were the big winners of that critical game Saturday night at the TD Garden, and Bruins forward Carl Soderberg had a huge part in the victory.
With three points (one goal, two assists) Saturday, Soderberg earned himself the Bruins’ Player of the Game jacket. His talents on the ice certainly helped the team, but overall, it’s his value of good old-fashioned hard work that makes him a key player for the B’s.
