It was only 366 days ago that the Bruins performed a miracle, rallying from a 4-1 deficit to beat the Toronto Maple Leafs in overtime of a Game 7 at TD Garden.

On Wednesday night, another miracle was not forthcoming.

Danny Briere registered the insurance goal late in the third period and assisted on the game's opening tally, Carey Price came up with 29 saves, and the Montreal Canadiens advanced to the Eastern Conference finals with a 3-1 victory over Boston.

Dale Weise and Max Pacioretty also tallied for the Canadiens, who repeated a similar feat from 10 years ago and stunned their long-time rivals on the road in a seventh game.

Montreal will take on the New York Rangers in the next round, the first time the two Original Six franchises battle for the right to play in the Stanley Cup Finals since 1986.

Jarome Iginla provided the sole offense for the Bruins, who were the defending conference champions. Tuukka Rask stopped only 15-of-18 shots in the season- ending setback.
