Allen made 43 saves as he ran his record to 1-0-2 since his return after missing more than two months nursing a groin injury.
The Bruins forced the overtime when Connor Clifton scored with 2:59 remaining in the third period.
The Canadiens said goodbye to four regulars in the weeks leading up to Monday’s trade deadline, but they hardly look like a rebuilding team as they have responded to new coach Martin St. Louis’s freewheeling approach to the game with a confident outlook the coach describes as swagger.
If there was a moment that perfectly illustrated the swagger surrounding this team it was in the dying seconds of the second period. The Bruins were on the power play and Marchand took a shot from low in faceoff circle to the right of Allen. It was headed to the far post when Allen speared it with his glove, allowing the Canadiens to head into the intermission tied 1-1.
