Canadiens Vs. Bruins, Game 7: Nathan Horton's Goal Gives Boston 4-3 Win

There a few greater things in sports than a Game 7. So your team winning a Game 7 in overtime must be that much better.

The Boston Bruins gave their fans a great game Wednesday (albeit a stressful one, no doubt), defeating the Montreal Canadiens in overtime, 4-3, to win Game 7 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series on Nathan Horton's slap shot just 5:43 into the extra period. The Bruins will advance to face the Philadelphia Flyers, a rematch of last year's  conference semi-finals, when the Flyers came all the way back from down 3-0 to shock the Bruins. 

In Wednesday night's Game 7, Boston found itself in overtime after P.K. Subban fired a power-play slapshot past Tim Thomas to tie the game 3-3 with just 1:57 left in regulation. The Bruins wasted little time in the extra frame. 

Milan Lucic found himself with the puck deep in the Montreal end and skated up to the right circle. He passed to the high slot for Horton, who slid over to the right and fired a shot past Carey Price, who never saw it coming.
