BOSTON -- Carey Price was all-world in goal and P. Joe Haden Jersey .K. Subban delivered a double-overtime dagger with a blast from the blue line as the Montreal Canadiens held off the hard-charging Boston Bruins for a wild 4-3 win in the opening game of their second-round playoff series. No wallflower, Subban savoured the spotlight Thursday after scoring two power-play goals and leading all skaters with 33 minutes 49 seconds of ice time. But the slick-skating defenceman with the big shot was also keeping things in perspective. Is there a better feeling than scoring a double-overtime winner, he was asked? "Im sure theres a better feeling," the 24-year-old said after pausing to reflect. "Winning the Cup. "Thats one win for us (tonight) but were going to need a lot more to have the Holy Grail feeling." Job 1 in Game 2 on Saturday is helping Price out more. The Canadiens goalie with ice in his veins faced 51 shots, compared to 33 for Tuukka Rask at the other end. "We cant be giving up 50-plus shots," said Subban. Price deserved the victory after staving off the Bruins comeback the way he did, he added. "When a guys standing on his head like that, youve got to find a way to win. It doesnt matter who it is." Subbans second power-play goal of the game came from the point through traffic at four minutes 17 seconds, silencing the sellout TD Garden crowd of 17,565, some of whom responded by tossing garbage on the ice. Matt Bartkowski was in the box for holding, as he was for Subbans first score. Rene Bourque and Francis Bouillon also scored for Montreal, which outshot Boston 4-1 in the final OT period. Reilly Smith, Torey Krug and Johnny Boychuk had Bostons goals. A smiling Subban, whose ice time can be regulated by coach Michel Therrien depending on performance, said there was a simple reason for his success. "I think that Im always playing my best when I play a lot," he said somewhat mischievously. Subban also loves a big stage, and he delivered Thursday. "A really solid game for us," Therrien said of Subban. Down 2-0 after 40 minutes, Boston came on strong in the third to force overtime. Boston threw everything it had at Price, who kept the Canadiens in it while extending the roller-coaster game. Price combined brilliance with a little luck in holding back the rampant Bruins. "It was a battle," Price said. "It was exactly what we were expecting. We just gutted it out. It was a hard-fought game. It could have gone either way." Boston nearly won it in the first overtime when a puck leaked through Prices pads but somehow deflected off the post through the crease. A pad save by Price saved the day later in the period and the sprawling Montreal goalie robbed David Krejci on a backhand from in close minutes later. Rask stopped Lars Eller at the other end to extend the game. Then Habs winger Brendan Gallagher cleared the puck out of the crease to keep the Bruins out. Boston outshot Montreal 14-6 in the first overtime period for a 50-29 overall edge. The final count was 51-33. "I made some saves but I couldnt make the game-savers as you say," said Rask, whose career mark against Montreal in Boston fell to 0-9. Bruins coach Claude Julien was calm in the face of the loss. "This is just Game 1 here. You dont get frustrated after just one game," said Julien, who had no complaints with the two overtime penalties called against his team. "I didnt mind the way our team played tonight. We had lots of chances. Sure we fell behind 2-0 but we showed some resiliency and came back. I thought we carried the play for the most part." "The only thing is we have to find a way to bury those great opportunities that we had," he added. "Thats probably where there are some regrets." The second overtime opened with Bostons Daniel Paille in the box for tripping but the Habs failed to take advantage. Rask had to be sharp soon after though to glove a Tomas Plekanec shot from the slot. It had looked like Bouillons knuckleball goal at 12:09 of the third would be enough to help the shell-shocked Canadiens stave off the Boston comeback as Montreal went ahead 3-2. But the Bruins continued to throw everything at the Habs and Boychuks slapshot from the point with 1:58 remaining continued Bostons tsunami-like late rally. Smith and Krug had scored early third-period goals to pull Boston even at 2-2 before Bouillons shot from the top of the faceoff circle, on a rare Montreal attack in the period, handcuffed Rask. It was just the third career playoff goal for the 38-year-old Bouillon. Boston outshot Montreal 14-6 in the third and 36-23 over three periods. Subban and Bourque scored in the first and second periods for Montreal, which made the most of its offensive opportunities while riding the broad shoulders of Price against a Boston team that spent much of the night on attack without much to show for it. Price made a string of key saves, including some keys stops late in the game -- a few of which he didnt know too much about. It was a nail-biting finale, however, as Boston turned the screws on the Canadiens. Smith finally beat Price on Bostons 24th shot, firing a shot from near the boards through the legs of a Habs defenceman and through two players tangled up in front of the Montreal goal at 2:44 of the third period. Subban went to the box for interference 34 seconds later but the Canadiens survived. Only briefly, however. A trailing Krug, on a nice setup from Milan Lucic as his linemates crashed the goal, beat Price with a slapshot at 6:30 on Bostons 25th shot. Montreal was living dangerously as Bruins circled Prices goal like sharks. Lucic missed a near open goal midway through the third only to see Bouillon score at the other end as Montreal crashed the next and the puck found its way back to the defenceman. Both teams were well rested coming in. The Canadiens were off for eight days, having completed a sweep of the Tampa Bay Lighting on April 22. The Bruins last game was April 26 when they dispatched the Detroit Red Wings in five games. Therrien said his team looked rusty from the layoff . But he took solace in the success of his power play, as well as the play of Price and Subban. Montreal holds a 24-9 edge overall in playoff series between the two but Boston has won six of the last nine. Boston.com celebrated the history by publishing a gallery of "30 pictures of Bruins and Canadiens beating the hell out of each other." The game, the opening salvo of the NHLs second round of the playoffs, started at a high pace with few stoppages and the Bruins pressing after taking the ice to a sea of yellow rally towels and trademark over-the-top anthem renditions from Rene Rancourt. Boston pest Brad Marchand, who skipped the morning skate, was back in action and looking to annoy. But Price was up for all-comers, stopping Gregory Campbell in close and making a good glove save on Smith midway as the Bruins came from all angles. The much maligned Montreal power play connected at 11:23 of the first period with Bartkowski off for tripping. Marchand and Patrice Bergeron did their job, majestically killing off the first half of the penalty but the Habs took advantage when the two went off. Subban sent in a wrist shot through traffic for a Montreal lead that went against the run of play -- and came seconds after a pair of in-close saves from Rask It was Subbans fourth game with a point but his first goal since March 23. And it shut up the Boston fans who had been booing him from the puck drop. Montreal was 19th over the season on the power play with a 17.2 per cent success rate, compared to third for Boston (21.7 per cent). The Canadiens went 0 for 23 over the final eight games of the season with the man advantage and scored on only two of 13 chances against Tampa. Krug, trying to play cat and mouse with Price later in the period, hung onto the puck in the slot after a nifty tic-tac-toe passing play in the hope that the Habs goalie would make a move. But the sphinx-like Price waited him out and made the save. Subban led all skaters with nine minutes three seconds of ice time and three hits in the first period, which saw Boston outshoot Montreal 13-10. The Bruins continued to attack early in the second but Montreal doubled its lead on an opportunistic counter-attack after a puck bounced off Krugs foot to Bourque at centre ice. Bourque headed towards goal on a three-on-one and ripped a wrist shot through Rask at 3:38 for his fourth of the post-season. Marchand played as if he had a chip the size of a grand piano on his shoulder, whacking Habs with his stick or offering a glove face-wash. But there was also a sandpaper side to the visitors who looked to take a piece out of towering Bruins captain Zdeno Chara at every opportunity. At times they bounced right off the big man but Chara had a target on his back. Boston pressure resulted in a holding penalty to Josh Gorges with 5:44 remaining in the second. Jarome Iginla had two glorious chances from in close but one was stopped by an amazing Price pad save and the other went wide. Then defenceman Dougie Hamilton rang a shot off the post and Carl Soderberg was denied. James Washington Steelers Jersey .cas NHL Play of the Year showdown continues today with a man whos spent most of his career on highlight reels and a goalie actually "reaching back" for a save. Jon Bostic Jersey .FIFA says it is relaxing the rule which forced match officials to leave its international list at the end of the year they turned 45. http://www.shoptheofficialsteelers.us/steelers-terrell-edmunds-super-bowl-jersey-authentic/ . The 31-year-old, a two-time CFL lineman of the year, was among the most coveted free agents on the market. The Windsor, Ont., native will be especially important to a team that has lost veteran quarterback Anthony Calvillo to retirement and is expected to go with the less experienced Troy Smith and Tanner Marsh this season.LONDON - Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger knew Kim Kallstrom had a back injury when he signed the Sweden midfielder on loan on transfer deadline-day, but said it was too late to find anyone else. Despite Arsenals financial firepower, the 31-year-old midfielder was the only arrival in the January transfer window. Signed until the end of the season as injury cover, Kallstrom might not be fit until mid-March after arriving Friday at Arsenal having injured his back earlier in the week while training with Spartak Moscow. If Kallstrom remains sidelined, Spartak will pay his wages for up to six weeks. Wenger said Sunday he considered aborting the deal for Kallstrom, who has made 108 appearances for Sweden. "I would not have signed him if we had two or three more days to do something, but it was Friday night at five oclock, so it was (a case of) you (sign) nobody or you do it under these conditions," Wenger said Sunday. "I decided to do it because we might, because of the number of games we have now in February, we might need the players in March or April. "There is a possibility (that he may not play) but as well there is the possibility that he scoores us the winning goal that might be vitally important. James Washington Jersey. quot; The injury, described by Wenger as a "micro-fracture," prevents Kallstrom from immediately providing cover for Mathieu Flamini, who has two games of a suspension remaining, and injured midfielders Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey. "Since the start of the season, all our central midfielders have missed a part of the season - whether its Flamini, Wilshere, (Mikel) Arteta, (Alex Oxlade) Chamberlain or (Santi) Cazorla," Wenger said. "All of them have had injuries and it can happen that a few of them miss the next part (of the season) together." Arsenal is provisionally top of the Premier League after the injury-hit team beat Crystal Palace 2-0 on Sunday. Although Wenger spent nothing in January, he was pursuing targets, with a deal for Schalke attacking midfielder Julian Draxler collapsing. "We are not against spending," Wenger said. "You have announced a lot of transfers in your papers that have not happened, in many places, that means it is not as easy as it looks, even with money, to buy the right players in that period."
