The Montreal Canadiens scored five consecutive goals in less than 10 minutes of the second period and beat the Boston Bruins, 6-3, at Montreal on Monday night.
The Bruins got goals from Steve Leach, Adam Oates and Steve Heinze in the first 2:35 of the second period to take a three-goal lead.
But Montreal stormed back with goals from Matt Schneider, John LeClair, Gilbert Dionne, Stephan Lebeau and Eric Desjardins in the next 10 minutes. Kirk Muller added an empty-net goal with five seconds left in the game.
Montreal, the Adams Division leader at 13-4-2, has won nine of its last 10 games and has lost only one of its last 14.
St. Louis 2, Toronto 2--Brett Hull, in a scoring slump most of the season, scored with 15 seconds left in regulation to give the Blues a tie at Toronto.
Low-scoring defenseman Bob Rouse was in line to be the star when he put Toronto ahead, 2-1, by scoring his first goal of the season with 4:49 remaining.
But Rouse drew a holding penalty with 38 seconds left in regulation. The Blues pulled goaltender Curtis Joseph to create a two-man advantage and kept the pressure on until Hull beat Felix Potvin with a 20-foot wrist shot.
