The post-season comeback trend is remaining as a strong dominant theme as the second round of the 2014 NHL play-offs continues. Saturday afternoon, the Bruins trailed the Montreal Canadians by 2 goals well into the third but were able to quickly rally scoring four goals in less than 8 minutes starting off with Dougie Hamilton at 10: 56 to make it 3-2 and concluding with Milan Lucic’s empty netter at 18:54 to seal it at 5-3 as the hapless Habs quit skating and watched in shock. http://video.nhl.com/videocenter/console?catid=-6&id=613698&cmpid=rss-wh...

The Bruins took the early lead in a game that featured 14 penalties between both teams through the first two periods before quieting down with just one Boston penalty in the third. Montreal also killed off a one minute 5 on 3 in the first, which appeared to be a turning point at the time with Boston failing to go up 2-0. Montreal came out ready in the second and evened the score just over a minute in then with less than 2 minutes remaining in the second the Habs grabbed the lead on a nice tip in off of Vanek up and over Rask who had no chance.

The Habs dominated the early going in the third and extended their lead to two at 6:30 with Vanek again tipping one in past Rask. The Canadiens looked to be in control and have clear sailing to a 2-0 series lead until Boston, the best third period NHL team all year, upped their intensity and took over the game.

The series heads to Montreal for game three on Tuesday with the city already preparing for potential fallout given the history and intensity of arguably the most long standing and intense rivalry in all pro sports. http://www.montrealgazette.com/sports/hockey/City+alert+mayhem+tense+Mon...

The Bruins were full measure for the win on Saturday. If not for Carey Price stealing the win in game one the Habs would be heading home without the split on the road. The positive spin for the Habs is they can claim home ice advantage in what is now a best of five but need two wins in Montreal to retain that edge.

In the later west coast start the comeback theme once again played out with the Kings, fresh off their history making rebound from a 3-0 series deficit erased the one goal Anaheim lead with just 7 seconds left as Gaborik, a Kings acquisition late in the season, tied the game and then scored again in overtime to give the Kings the win. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mari%C3%A1n_G%C3%A1bor%C3%ADk

Game two is scheduled for Monday at 7:00 Pacific time as the Ducks look to even the series.
