6:30 in the third period, Montreal's Thomas Vanek put the team up two goals, but it was all Boston after that.

"It was a fun last part of the third period," defenseman Torey Krug said after the win. "We're very excited with how things turned out, but we've got to move along from it pretty soon."

Bruins goalie Tukka Rask wound up making 25 saves in the win while Canadiens goalie Carey Price made 34 saves, but gave up three goals.

Games 3 and 4 will be in Montreal.
