The Montreal Canadiens advanced to the NHL's Eastern Conference final with a 3-1 victory over the Boston Bruins in Game 7 of their playoff series.

Max Pacioretty's second period goal was the eventual winner as Montreal built a 2-0 lead by the 10:22 mark of the period. Dale Weise and Daniel Briere also scored for the Canadiens.

Jarome Iginla's goal late in the second period was Boston's only offence.

Carey Price made 29 saves in net for Montreal.

Tuukka Rask stopped 15 shots for the Bruins.


Hockey fans began pouring into the streets of Montreal on Wednesday night to celebrate the Canadiens' gripping series-clinching victory over the arch-enemy Boston Bruins.<

Droves emerged from downtown bars, as did many of the 21,000 fans who packed the Bell Centre to watch the Habs' 3-1 victory over the Bruins on giant screens.

As the game played in Boston came to an end, even Montreal police officers stationed on Sainte-Catherine Street pumped their fists in celebratory manner.

The victory sent the Canadiens into the Eastern Conference final against the New York Rangers. That series begins Saturday afternoon.

The Bell Centre was a sea of red, white and blue as fans took advantage of $10 tickets to watch the game 500 kilometres away. Some of the proceeds were destined for a Canadiens charity fund
for children.

There were reports of people selling tickets for $50 in the hours leading up to the game.
