Bruins forward Bobby Schmautz gave the 14,597 fans at Boston Garden hope, opening the scoring with his 11th postseason goal at 11:35 of the first period.
It would be the only opportunity for rejoicing as Ken Dryden transformed into a wall, making 25 stops the rest of the way.
Jacques Lemaire took care of the offense, tying the game early in the second with help from Guy Lafleur and Larry Robinson. Neither side scored again, ending the 60 minutes of regulation tied at a goal apiece.
Lemaire, who hadn’t finished his work for the night, secured the Habs’ victory 4:32 into overtime, making the Canadiens Stanley Cup Champions for a 20th time and for a second spring in a row.
Picking up a pair of assists, Guy Lafleur finished the postseason with 26 points, including nine in the four games of the Finals, earning him the Conn Smythe Trophy.
