MONTREAL (AP) - Matt Fraser scored at 1:19 of overtime to give the Boston Bruins a 1-0 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night, tying the Eastern Conference semifinal series 2-2.
Making his NHL playoff debut after being called up Wednesday from Providence of the American Hockey League, Fraser jumped into a scramble in front of goalie Carey Price and slid the puck under him into the net.
Fraser scored after Johnny Boychuk's shot from the point took a high hop off the end boards and Price and defenseman Mike Weaver had trouble controlling the bouncing puck.
Tuukka Rask made 33 saves for Boston, and Price stopped 34 shots.
Game 5 is Saturday night in Boston.
