BOSTON Richard Zednik scored midway through the third period and the Montreal Canadiens capped a comeback unprecedented in their rich history, beating the Boston Bruins 2-0 Monday night to win the first-round series in seven games.
The Canadiens rallied from a 3-1 series deficit to win for the first time, capturing two of the final three games in Boston.
Boston, which had never lost a series it led 3-1, also had its six-game winning streak in Game 7s snapped. Montreal has won four of the six Game 7s between the Original Six teams. Jose Theodore stopped 32 Boston shots, including 12 in the third period.
Flames 3, Canucks 2
VANCOUVER, British Columbia Martin Gelinas scored a power-play goal 1:25 into overtime and the Calgary Flames won a playoff series for the first time since 1989 by beating the Vancouver Canucks in Game 7.
Matt Cooke's second goal tied it for Vancouver with 5.7 seconds left in regulation, but the Canucks started the overtime down a man because of Ed Jovanovski's high-sticking penalty with 27 seconds remaining.
