It's all tied
Jeff Halpern may just be playing in his second game of this series for the Montreal Canadiens, but he just scored the club's biggest goal.

With his team trailing 1-0 in the third period, the Montreal Canadiens forward beat Tim Thomas from point-blank range to knot this game up.

Halpern, a former star at Princeton University, now has seven career postseason goals.
Quote of the Day

It was a big dream. [Messi] is probably the best athlete out there, so it's a big honor, for [Kuznetzov] as well. It's maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet the best player in soccer right now. I'm a big Barcelona fan and Messi fan, so it's huge. You can take [Michael] Jordan, [Mark] Messier, [Wayne] Gretzky, those kinds of [people]. It's an honor to meet. It's nice to be in that position.
