Boston Bruin Matt Fraser is a household name this morning after he was called up from the Providence Bruins to play in Game 4 of the team's playoff series against the Montreal Canadiens last night.

Fraser scored the game's only goal at 1:19 of overtime and tied the series 2-2 in the process.

It was really a greasy goal, as they often are in playoff overtime. The puck rattled around behind the net and Canadiens netminder Carey Price lost track of it for a split second.

Nobody is faulting Price, however, who was at the top of his game along with his Boston rival, Tuuka Rusk.

Boston played a lot more like they wanted to out of the gate, they were hitting and the refs were helping by calling only three penalties in the entire game.

The Bruins game also succeeded in taking the Habs' top line out of the game completely.

Max Pacioretty and David Desharnais had only one shot each in last night's game.

Game 5 is on Saturday, May 10, in Boston.
