MONTREAL — Rookie Matt Fraser scored 1:19 into overtime to give the Boston Bruins a 1-0 victory over the Montreal Canadiens and even their Eastern Conference semifinal playoff series on Thursday night. Fraser, called up Wednesday from AHL Providence and playing his first career NHL playoff game, jumped into a scramble in front of goalie Carey Price's net and slid the puck under him into the net. Johnny Boychuk's point shot had taken a high hop off the end boards and Price and defenceman Mike Weaver had trouble controlling the bouncing puck.
