David Backes scored the game-winner during a three-goal surge in the third period, as the Boston Bruins rallied past the visiting Montreal Canadiens 3-1 Sunday night.
David Pastrnak and Jake DeBrusk also tallied in the third, as the Bruins extended their winning streak to seven straight and their points streak to 11 (8-0-3). Tuukka Rask stopped 28 shots in net to help Boston remain undefeated in regulation at home (11-0-4).
Joel Armia scored for the Canadiens, whose losing streak extended to eight games (0-5-3). Carey Price had 31 saves and carried a shutout into the third period before the wheels came off.
Pastrnak tied the game at 1-1 with a wicked one-timer from the right circle off the post at the 6:16 mark of the third. Pastrnak, who had a hat trick in a rout of Montreal five days prior, extended his league lead in goals to 25.
