Bruins Boost Playoff Momentum With Overtime Victory Against Canadiens in Game 4

There were plenty of times during Thursday night's Game 4 matchup in Montreal where Canadiens fans believed they had the game in the bag. The Habs never trailed in regulation, and it wasn't until overtime that the Bruins' perseverance throughout the first 60 minutes truly paid off.

The B's battled from behind through much of regulation but managed to tie the game at four goals apiece with just over six minutes to play in the third period. Then, just two minutes into the first overtime period, Michael Ryder snapped a quick pass from Chris Kelly past Montreal netminder Carey Price and evened the playoff series 2-2.

The Bruins now head back to Boston for Game 5 with a huge boost of momentum on their side, and they should use that to their advantage in front of their home crowd at TD Garden on Saturday.

"There were many times the Bruins could have quit and given up, and their season would have been basically lost," Bruins analyst Gord Kluzak said. "They just brought it back from the edge so many times, and to win has to give them huge momentum."
