Smith’s goal was set up by a beautiful pass from Bruins defenseman Dougie Hamilton. It was Smith’s third goal of this second-round Stanley Cup playoff series, which leads the team. The next power-play goal was scored 32 seconds later. Bruins D-man Zdeno Chara won a puck battle in the corner and fed a pass to Torey Krug, who found Iginla all alone in the right faceoff circle. The veteran winger beat Canadiens goaltender Carey Price five-hole to give the Bruins a 3-0 lead. Filed under: Boston Bruins, Montreal Canadiens, Nicholas Goss, Stanley Cup Playoffs, Top Stories
