The day before Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series between the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens, Matt Fraser was eating lunch at a Providence-area Chipotle — then enjoyed some frozen yogurt afterward. Thursday night, the 23-year-old made hockey history by scoring the overtime game-winner in a 1-0 Bruins victory that evened the series at 2-2.
After being called up from the minors, Fraser was the hero in his first Stanley Cup playoff game. Of course, the stakes were a little higher in Montreal than they were back on April 25, when his OT tally helped the Providence Bruins beat the Springfield Falcons. And he was eager to work off the treat too. During his postgame interview with NBC Sports on-ice reporter Pierre McGuire, Fraser admitted he wanted to work off Wednesday's dessert, even if Bruins fans may think otherwise.
Game 5 is Saturday.
