P.K. Subban scored his second goal of the game at 4 minutes, 17 seconds of the second overtime to give the Montreal Canadiens a 4-3 victory over the Bruins in Boston on Thursday night in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.
The goal came seven seconds into the Canadiens' second power play of overtime. Fans pelted the ice with cups and giveaway towels as the players filed off the ice.
The Vancouver Canucks fired John Tortorella, one year into the fiery coach's long-term deal.
Tortorella, who signed a five-year contract last summer after being dismissed by the New York Rangers, went 36-35-11 and failed to reach the playoffs behind the Vancouver bench.
Tortorella's dismissal came just weeks after general manager Mike Gillis was fired.
