Patrice Brisebois snapped a scoreless tie late in the second period, rookie Carey Price posted his first playoff shutout and the Montreal Canadiens moved within one game of advancing with a 1-0 win over the Boston Bruins on Tuesday night. The Canadiens, the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference, lead the best-of-seven, first-round series 3-1.
They can wrap it up at home Thursday night. The teams played evenly for much of the hard-hitting, fast-paced game until Brisebois scored on a power play with 42 seconds left in the second period. Then Carey continued doing what he had done throughout the series: shut down Boston's mediocre offense.
