Rene Bourque Scores 11 Seconds Into Game 3 For Canadiens (Video)


It took Rene Bourque and the Montreal Canadiens all of 11 seconds to score in Sunday’s Game 3 against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Canadiens, who held a 2-0 series lead entering the game, came out fast and furious in their return to Bell Centre, with Bourque leading the charge. The Montreal forward corralled a bouncing puck and beat two Tampa Bay defenders to rip a shot past Anders Lindback and give the Habs the early 1-0 lead in the first period.

Bourque scored just nine goals during the regular season, but he has turned up his offensive production a notch in the Stanley Cup playoffs. He now has three goals in the Eastern Conference first-round series.

Check out the speedy score in the video below.
