The Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens needed overtime to settle Game 4 of their Stanley Cup Playoffs series Thursday night -- but they didn't need much of it. The Bruins' Michael Ryder scored the game-winning game just 1:59 into the extra period, and here's the video to prove it.
It was Ryder's second goal of the game, and it gave the Bruins their second win in a row at the Bell Centre in Montreal to level their series with the Canadiens are two games apiece.
Game 4 was a back-and-forth affair, with Montreal taking leads of 1-0, 3-1 and 4-3, only to see Boston battle back each time. The second period alone featured five goals and three lead changes.
The series, which is now a best of three situation, shifts back to Boston for Game 5, scheduled for 7 p.m. ET on Saturday. Game 6 is set for Tuesday night and, if necessary, Game 7 will be Wednesday night, in Boston.
