Bruins Beat Canadiens in Round 1
Nathan Horton tallied his second overtime goal of the 2011 NHL playoffs on Wednesday night, waiting until 5:43 into overtime in Game 7 to give the Boston Bruins a 4-3 victory over the Canadiens as they advance to the Eastern Conference semifinals.
“Just getting to the playoffs is all I was really thinking about. This has been a dream come true,” said Horton, who hadn’t reached the postseason during his first six years in the NHL with the Florida Panthers. “I’m really enjoying it. I’m enjoying it more every day.”
Boston will open the conference semifinals in Philadelphia on Saturday with a chance to avenge last year’s historic collapse against the Flyers.
