NESN 30: Nathan Horton’s Double OT Winner Lifts B’s Past Canadiens (Video)

After falling behind 0-2 in their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series against the Montreal Canadiens in 2011, the Boston Bruins staged an amazing comeback to earn a 3-2 series advantage thanks to Nathan Horton’s overtime heroics in Game 5.

The former Bruin led the Black and Gold to a thrilling double overtime victory against the Habs, scoring the second playoff goal of his career off a rebound from an Andrew Ference shot.

The B’s eventually edged Montreal in seven games, and of course, went on to win the Stanley Cup.

Check out highlights from Horton’s clutch goal in the video above.
