The Bruins' offense struggled in Games 1 and 2 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series against the Canadiens, but the goals finally started breaking through during Game 3 in Montreal.
Patrice Bergeron broke the offensive ice for the B's, scoring the team's first postseason goal in Game 2 at TD Garden. Though it didn't lead the Bruins to a victory, Bergeron's quick conversion in front of the net proves that he has the skill to spark the Boston offense.
David Krejci opened up the scoring in Game 3 of the series, igniting the offense early with his goal just three minutes into the first period. Krejci's tally was his eighth career playoff goal, and helped lead the B's to a 4-2 victory.
Nathan Horton's first-ever postseason goal gave the Bruins some breathing room in Game 3, extending their lead to 2-0 in the first period. Horton said he was glad to get that first goal out of the way, considering this is the first playoff appearance of his career.
