BOSTON – Bruins forward Matt Fraser was still all smiles a little more than 12 hours after scoring the biggest goal of his life. Fraser and the B’s returned to Boston following Thursday night’s overtime win over the Montreal Canadiens in Game 4 of their second-round Stanley Cup playoffs series. Fraser scored the overtime game-winner just 1:19 into the extra session and sent the Bruins home with the series tied 2-2. The 23-year-old forward, who was recalled prior to Thursday’s Game 4, was one of the handful of Bruins who didn’t skate at the Bruins’ optional practice on Friday at TD Garden.  Fraser admitted to getting a little bit of rest overnight, but he was still working on processing everything that happened the night before. “You get in bed and you kind of digest it all when you’re alone,” Fraser said. “You just kind of lay there and you can’t really dream it up a better way.” The Deer Lake, Alta., native said his phone was blowing up with support from family, friends and ex-coach
