Horton: 'It doesn't get any better'

For the second time in the series with the Canadiens, Nathan Horton sat on the press conference dais after scoring a game-winning overtime goal. But this time, his score in extra time not only won the game, it ended the series and sent the Bruins onto a second-round rematch with the Flyers starting this weekend in Philadelphia. Horton, who won Game 5 in double-overtime Saturday night, blasted a shot past a screened Carey Price with 14:17 left in overtime that won Game 7, 4-3. 

"Yeah, it was pretty nice," said a smiling Horton. "I mean, it felt pretty good. I don’t remember too much. I remember Looch [Milan Lucic] coming up with the puck and I just tried to get open, and I tried putting the puck towards the net. Luckily it got deflected off someone and it went straight in. That’s all I remember. It was pretty special, again, it doesn’t get any better."

The goal also saved the Bruins from the devastating...

Report: Hearing scheduled for Ference
By: DJ Bean

According to a tweet from TSN's Bob McKenzie, Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference will have a hearing with the league at 11 a.m. Thursday regarding his hit on Canadiens forward Jeff Halpern in the third period of the B's 4-3 overtime win in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals. Halpern remained on the ice after colliding with the B's defenseman's shoulder in the Bruins' zone.

"It was pretty solid [contact], actually," Ference said of the play. "I kind of braced myself because I saw him off the side, and I definitely felt him hit me."

Ference maintained that he did not intend to injure Halpern, who seemingly was not significantly injured given his quick return to the game.  

"Oh yeah?," Ference responded when a reporter suggested he may have raised his shoulder. "No. It was like [I expalined]....

Julien: B's wanted another crack at Flyers
By: DJ Bean

Thanks to the Bruins' 4-3 win over the Canadiens in Game 7 Wednesday night, the Bruins will get a shot at redemption against the Flyers. Philadelphia eliminated the B's in the second round last season after Boston held a 3-0 lead in both the series and in Game 7. Following Wednesday night's game, B's coach Claude Julien noted that the team was fighting vs. the Habs for another crack at the Flyers.

"There is no doubt that tonight, we knew winning this game would give us another opportunity to play Philly," Julien said after the game. "If anything, I think it’s going to make it interesting. I think a lot of people are going to be watching this to see how it develops and we’re excited to have that opportunity."  

The Bruins went 3-0-1 against the Flyers in the regular season. The Eastern Conference semifinals will begin Saturday at 3 p.m. in Philadelphia.
