Trailing 3-1 in the third period, Mike Felger was, according to Joe Haggerty, ready to write off the Bruins. 

Suddenly, a Dougie Hamilton goal woke up the crowd and the team. The rest, as they say, is history. 

Mike Giardi joins Haggerty on the Great American Hockey Show to break down the Bruins 5-3 Game 2 victory.

Hamilton's goal convinced Haggerty that the game was going to overtime. Instead, the Bruins kept scoring, and scoring, and scoring, eventually closing things out in regulation.

"I’ve seen it too many times with this team," says Haggerty. "They know how to win. They’re too experienced to completely lose their minds and they knew they couldn’t go back to Montreal [down] 0-2."

Brad Marchand "came alive" in the third period after trying to make too many fancy plays early in the game. Torey Krug's cross-ice pass set up Reilly Smith for the eventual game-winner. 

But it was Hamilton's goal that really got things started.

“Once that happened you started to get that same feeling you got in Game 7 last year against the Maple Leafs," says Haggerty. "Once the train starts rolling for the Boston Bruins it’s really hard to stop them.”
