Tim Thomas stopped 31 shots for the Bruins, who now trail the Eastern Conference quarterfinal 3-2.
Price gloved a puck at the side of his net and dropped it in front of him, but Petteri Nokelainen got his stick on it before Montreal's Maxim Lapierre and Metropolit batted the puck into an open net 3:31 into the third to put the Bruins up 2-1.
Stars 3, Ducks 1
DALLAS (AP) - Stu Barnes and Steve Ott scored third-period goals for Dallas and Marty Turco came within 7.6 seconds of a shutout, putting the Anaheim Ducks on the brink of elimination after the Stars' 3-1 win Thursday night.
Dallas leads the first-round series 3-1 going into Game 5 in Anaheim on Friday night.
Turco and the Stars are seeking their first postseason series win since a first-rounder in 2003, having dropped four straight. Anaheim, meanwhile, is a loss away from continuing a dismal streak for defending champs - none has reached the second round since Colorado in 2002.
