BOSTON -- Carey Price offered the tiniest hint of a smile after sending the Boston Bruins home for the summer. Juan Cuadrado Jersey . "Im ecstatic," said the Canadiens goalie in the wake of backstopping Montreal to the Eastern Conference final against the New York Rangers. Considering it normally takes the Hubble Telescope to spot a change in Prices emotions, Wednesday was a night to remember. The Canadiens, who finished eight places and 17 points back of the league-leading Boston during the regular season, made it so by dispatching the big bad Bruins 3-1 in Game 7. Price, as he has been through the series, was all-world -- even reportedly addressing his teammates prior to the third period. Dale Weise, Max Pacioretty and Daniel Briere provided the offence as Montreal rose to the occasion of Game 7 better than the Bruins. Now the Habs must reload and refocus on the Rangers, a team coming off an emotional series win over Pittsburgh. "Its not over. Were only halfway there," cautioned Price. For the Canadiens, the win over Boston was all about respect. They were tired of being written off as also-ran Smurfs and fed up with what they saw as Bostons macho posturing. "Beating those guys, it just feels that much sweeter," said Weise, who as a former Vancouver Canuck has no love for Boston. "They just disrespected us in every single way and I didnt think they had any respect for us as a team," he added. "Well leave it at that." Said defenceman P.K. Subban: "A lot of people were saying Dont poke the bear. Well I thought they gave us many reasons to keep competing throughout the whole series ... Against a bigger, stronger, more experienced team, we pulled out a victory. Thats a character win for us. Thats a character series win for us." The chip on Montreals shoulder was the size of Mount Rushmore. Weise did not spare the media, turning his attention to TSNs hockey panel as one of its members stood on his right shoulder. "We were very comfortable playing that team," Weise said of Boston. "I think everyone else doubted us. I heard someone on the TSN panel actually say they were the perfect hockey club. I dont know what that says about us now." Said Subban: "It come down to respect. Weve done a lot of great things in this league since Ive been here, our teams done a lot but we failed to get the respect that I think we deserved. And I think we earned that." While there were the traditional handshakes after the game, there was also bad blood. "Milan Lucic had a few things to say to a couple of guys," said Weise, who declined to go into specifics. Lucic was unrepentant: "Its said on the ice so itll stay on the ice. If he (Weise) wants to be a baby about it -- he can make it public." Montreal coach Michel Therrien was cagey when asked about the disrespect issue. "Im not going to talk about the other team," said Therrien. "I never talk about the other team. One thing I could tell you we were a group that was really really motivated to win this series." He made the comment in both French and English just so the message got across. He too clearly felt his club won more than a playoff round. "Respect, youve got to earn it and I think tonight those guys earned it," said Therrien. Boston coach Claude Julien had his own take on the series, which came complete with chest-pounding, muscle-flexing and crest-pointing. "I dont think we disrespected them," he said. "Theres a rivalry here. We dont like each other, because its a rivalry. "At the same time, the pounding of the chest, people who have been here have seen us do that all year. Because its related to Boston Strong. Our guys take some pride in whats happened in Boston Strong and unfortunately everything we did seemed to be seen as disrespect in Montreal. "We heard a lot of that whining throughout the series but it had nothing to do with disrespect." Julien called it gamesmanship, the kind seen in every playoff round. "Its too bad that it gets blown out of proportion. But you know what, they won the series fair and square. They were the better team tonight and you have to respect that." The Canadiens showed character in the series, staving off elimination with a masterful performance in Game 6 in Montreal. They also showed lots of savvy. Montreal targeted Bruins captain Zdeno Chara, making the 37-year-old look slow and laboured. They also pressured Bostons young defenders, denying them avenues to advance the puck out of their end. The series was like rolling a boulder uphill for the Bruins, who rarely got their game going. Boston was touted as the team with all the depth but it was Montreal that got production from different quarters while the Bruins sputtered. Julien had said Game 7s deserved your best. The Bruins failed to deliver for much of the night despite outshooting Montreal 30-18. "Carey Price was outstanding," said Julien. "He gave them a chance to win every night." The Canadiens started fast and then stymied the Bruins, winners of the Presidents Trophy for the best regular-season record, to move deeper in the playoffs. Jarome Iginlas goal, which cut the Canadiens lead to 2-1 with 2:08 remaining in the second, set the scene for a dramatic third period. Iginla, pouncing on a rare Price rebound, hit the post early on. Boston pressed but the Canadiens held fast and Price, improving his record in elimination games in 2014 to 5-0 including the Olympics, was rock-solid with a disciplined team defending in front of him. The late Boston surge was not helped by a Johnny Boychuk penalty for interference with 4:31 remaining. Montreal scored on the ensuing power play when Brieres centring pass bounced in off Zdeno Charas skate at 18:07 to pad the lead to 3-1. Montreal killed off a late interference penalty to Andrei Markov -- and a 6-on-4 Boston opportunity -- to seal the win. The game drew two sellouts: 17,565 at TD Garden and some 21,000 at the Bell Centre, where fans paid $10 to watch the game on the video scoreboard with proceeds going to charity. They saw a contest in which both teams seemed at times weighed down by the occasion early on, knowing there could be an entire off-season to ponder a costly mistake. "Its disappointing," said Julien. "I cant stand here and say its not disappointing. In my mind, we were going to move forward. We were going to win this game and thats what I prepared myself for." The series has been a roller-coaster ride with no shortage of subplots, most of which involved Subban whose star continues to grow. When he wasnt firing bullets from the blue-line or skating circles, the flamboyant Canadiens defenceman was dodging water aimed his way from the Boston bench and dealing with racism on social media. Subban embraced the attention and found himself in the spotlight again ahead of Game 7 when he pointed to the crowd, noise and energy in Bostons TD Garden before saying: "I cant wait to take that all away from them." Subban focused on the task at hand Wednesday, forgoing the flash. In a series where the team scoring the first goal had won all six previous outings, a fast start was mandatory. Especially when teams scoring first in Game 7s were 112-40 (.737). Advantage Montreal as the visitors went ahead on their first shot, thanks to the fourth line, at 2:18 after Tuukka Rask kicked out what looked like an innocent long shoot-in. But Brandon Prust retrieved the puck and found Briere who sent a pass through Matt Bartkowski and Daniel Paille in front. Weise swept it in from Rasks doorstep. Boychuk and Gregory Campbell both tried to hit Prust on the play, opening space for others. The second period started poorly for Boston with Marchand sent to the penalty box for unsportsmanlike conduct for a snow shower aimed at Price. That call prompted garbage thrown from the stands. Boston dug itself out of that hole and looked to fight back. But it was the Canadiens who scored at 10:22 after Boston failed to clear its zone. A diving Brandon Gallagher somehow found five-foot-seven David Desharnais, who emerged with the puck after Loui Eriksson, Soderberg and Bergeron failed to deal with it. Desharnais headed towards goal but rather than shooting, sent a no-look pass to Pacioretty to his right. The Montreal sniper rifled a shot into the goal before Rask could slide to the other side of the crease. Desharnais, under fire for his sub-par performance for much of the series, had a whale of game. Boston finally beat Price on the power play on an Iginla tip of a Torey Krug shot at 17:58. The goal, which came with seven seconds left in a Pacioretty penalty, ended Prices shutout streak of 103 minutes 46 seconds. The series was the 34th between the Bruins and Canadiens and marked the ninth time -- a record in North American pro sports -- that a Game 7 was required. Montreal now holds a 6-3 advantage. The Bruins had the last laugh last time out, with Nathan Horton scoring at 5:43 of overtime to give Boston a 4-3 victory in the 2011 Eastern Conference quarter-finals. Boston went on to win the Stanley Cup. Montreal upped its advantage to 25-9 in the playoff meetings between the two Original Six rivals. Its the first Conference final for the Habs since 2010 when they fell to the Flyers in a five-game series. And only their second since 1993 when they won their last Stanley Cup. Alex Sandro Jersey . "I had a pretty good year," the soft-spoken Granberg told TSN.ca with a grin from the teams annual rookie tournament in London. A fourth-round selection in 2010, Granberg is worth keeping an eye on with NHL training camps rolling around in less than a week. The six-foot-two, 200-pound defender may not possess the wow-inspiring theatrics of fellow prospect Morgan Rielly, but nonetheless has a chance to contribute with the Leafs when all is said and done this season. Federico Bernardeschi Jersey . With the suspension, Nigeria is unable to take part in any kind of international fixtures. FIFA had issued a warning to the NFF last week after the federation was served with court proceedings from the government that prevented the NFFs president from running the NFFs day-to-day affairs. http://www.juventusfcstore.com/authentic-benedikt-howedes-juventus-jersey/ . None of them was better than playing with LeBron James again.SEATTLE -- Chad Marshall headed in a corner kick from Marco Pappa in the 84th minute Saturday night as the Seattle Sounders completed a comeback from a first-half own goal to beat the Philadelphia Union 2-1. The Sounders (6-2-1) won their MLS-leading fourth straight game, extended their unbeaten streak to five and took the overall league lead with 19 points. "I think Ill be thinking about that goal tonight," said Marshall, whose tally was his first since Sept. 14, 2013, while still with the Columbus Crew before he came to Seattle in an off-season trade. "Ive been close a couple times this year, so it was nice to get one, especially at home. And for it to be a game-winner was pretty sweet." During their five-game unbeaten streak, the Sounders have come from behind in four of them to get the result. "We said at the beginning of the season that we wanted to be a team that fought to the very end of games, and were doing that," coach Sigi Schmid said. "Coming back, we made it a little bit hard for ourselves. We had some good chances in the first half. . We didnt put those chances away." Philadelphia (1-4-5) saw its winless streak extended to eight games (0-4-4), tying a club record that was first set in 2011 and matched in 2012. Pappas corner kick from the right side floated into the penalty area just outside the 6-yard box. Marshall ran and headed it high into the net over goalkeeper Zac MacMath for his first of the year. Marshall was also on top of his game at the other end of the field, blocking several Philadelphia attempts and clearing away two that were dangerously close to the Seattle net. "Im a big guy, and Im just trying to get in their way," said the 6-foot-4 Marsshall, who has played all 810 minutes this season. Mattia De Sciglio Jersey. "I think I have a nice Adidas tattoo on my back from one of (the blocked shots)." The Union took the lead late in the 13th minute when a long free kick into the penalty area went into the Seattle net off of Brad Evans head. The own goal was the result of a free kick by the Unions Cristian Maidana about 40 yards upfield and slightly toward the right side. He drove it into the box, where teammate Maurice Edu and Seattles Evans both went up for it. The ball flew into the right side of the net and originally was credited to Edu, but was changed moments later to an own goal off of Evans. Obafemi Martins tied it for Seattle in the 61st minute, his fourth goal of the season. The Sounders created multiple opportunities to tie it before halftime, none better than Osvaldo Alonsos penalty kick early in the 40th minute after Philadelphias Amobi Okugo was called for a hand ball in the box. Alonso went toward the right post, but MacMath dived to his left and blocked it. Evans started the play that led to the tying goal when he headed a short ball into the penalty area. Martins caught up with it at the penalty spot, took it to the top of the 6-yard box and shot into a wide-open right side of the net for his fourth of the season. "Its a difficult one to take because we came in and played well in the first half and we got up a goal," Union coach John Hackworth said. "Even in the second half, we had some chances to get a second one, and we didnt put those away. They came back to get back in the game, and Chad Marshall makes a great play on a corner kick - I dont know what to say. "Once again, we kind of let ourselves down."
