NHL playoffs: Chara’s tiebreaker lifts Boston to 2-1 series lead

< Previous Page

The lead didn’t last long, though. At 9:38 of the second period, Boston tied it, thanks to an unlikely source. Paille — who had nine goals all season, and none since Feb. 11 — batted down a rebound with his stick, then nimbly got around Holtby and poked home the puck to make it 2-all. Rolston put Boston ahead 62 seconds into the third period, before Laich temporarily evened the score.

NOTES: Ovechkin’s goal allowed him to break a tie with coach Dale Hunter and move into second in Capitals history with 26 in the playoffs. Only Peter Bondra, with 30, scored more postseason goals for Washington. ... Thomas turned 38 on Sunday. Holtby is 22. ... The Bruins have won six consecutive road games, dating to the regular season.
