Twenty minutes of overtime hockey weren't enough to determine a winner in this epic battle between the Canadiens and Bruins at TD Garden.
Mike Cammalleri had the best chance for the Habs in the first overtime, but his shot from between the circles was blocked by the right skate of hulking defenseman Zdeno Chara. And, a despite a late penalty on Canadiens defenseman Brent Sopel, the Bruins were unable to cash in on the man advantage.
We don't have any excuses tonight. Excuses are for losers. We've played with five defensemen before and it didn't affect us. We just had a bad second period and it cost us the game. We have to look in the mirror and blame ourselves.
— Bruins coach Claude Julien on his team's play with the loss of defenseman Johnny Boychuk
