The Bruins gave up a 2-0 lead in the final minutes of regulation before Max Pacioretty sent a wrist-shot past Tim Thomas at 3:43 of overtime to give the Habs a 3-2 overtime victory.
Thomas lost what would have been his sixth shutout of the season with 2:22 remaining in regulation when he failed to get a stick on a Scott Gomez shot with the Canadiens on the power play. One minute and 34 seconds later, former Boston College star Brian Gionta redirected a James Wisniewski shot past Thomas to cap the Habs' comeback.
The Bruins got a pair of goals from Patrice Bergeron, who scored his ninth and 10th goals of the season in the second period.
The Bruins were without the services of Nathan Horton, who missed his first game of the season on Saturday due to what coach Claude Julien would only describe as "discomfort."
With the overtime loss, the Bruins remain in...

The NFL will crown a new champion in 2011.
The Saints, winners of Super Bowl XLIV, saw their visions of a title defense come to an end in the wild card round of the playoffs, suffering a startling 41-36 loss to the Seahawks. Though Seattle is the first team in NFL history to reach the playoffs despite a losing record (7-9) in the regular season, the team took advantage of its home-field advantage (the result of winning the pitiful NFC West) to produce one of the biggest upsets in the league's playoff history.
Seattle quarterback Matt Hasselback was 22-for-35 for 272 yards and four touchdowns, while Marshawn Lynch gashed New Orleans for 131 yards on just 19 carries. For the Saints, quarterback Drew Brees was 39-for-60 for 404 yards and two touchdowns, but even though his team had more total yards (475 to 415) and more first downs (32 to 19) than the Seahawks, the failure of the New Orleans defense allowed Seattle to...
Reggie Jackson hit 8-of-9 shots and scored 25 points to lead the Eagles past Georgia Tech on Saturday, 86-75, in an ACC game at Conte Forum.
Also for BC (12-4, 2-0 ACC), Corey Raji had 22 points and hit a couple of big baskets down the stretch to thwart a Tech comeback bid. BC finished with an impressive 55 percent shooting from the field.
Kammeon Holsey led Georgia Tech (7-7, 0-1) with 18 points on 8-of-10 shooting.
The Eagles took control of the game early in the second half. They led 47-45 when they embarked on a 13-2 run. It started with a fastbreak layup and free throw by Jackson, followed by a fastbreak layup by Raji off a nice pass by Biko Paris. When Danny Rubin and then Jackson hit 3-pointers — Jackson's coming from well behind the arc with the shot clock running down — the Eagles had a 60-47 lead with 14:11 remaining.
Tech fought back to within three points...
The Patriots have waived defensive lineman Atiyyah Ellison, according to Mac's Football Blog. (UPDATE, 5:46 PM: A league source has confirmed the news to WEEI.com.) The 6-foot-3, 315-pounder out of Missouri was signed last week after New England suspended rookie defensive lineman Brandon Deaderick. However, with Deaderick reinstated on Friday and the seven-day roster exemption for rookie inside linebacker Brandon Spikes set to expire on Monday, the Patriots needed to make a move to get down to the 53-man limit.
