Bruins @ Montreal

Last night, the Montreal Canadiens took on the number one seated division leaders, the Boston Bruins. The Bruins who have suffered only one loss in regulation with 9 games played. The Canadiens coming into this game only had 2 regulation losses in their 8 games played. If the Canadiens win, they would go on to take the number one division spot over the Bruins, which hasn't happened in 5 years!
  • First Period
    • The crowd in Montreal was overly excited to finally see these 2 teams play against one another. The Montreal Vs. Boston rivalry has been a overwhelming experience for fans. To kick off the first period, the Canadiens would dominate the Bruins as they took 11 shots on goal, compared to the 4 the Bruins took. It took 11 minutes for the Bruins to get their first shot on Carey Price. Although the Canadiens came hard, the score would be held at 0-0 as the first period came to an end.
      • Montreal: 11 Shots On Goal
      • Boston: 4 Shots On Goal
  • Second Period
    • Midway through the second period, Bruins aggressive forward, Milan Lucic took a high sticking penalty, resulting the Habs to go into their third powerplay of the game. As we all know, when P.K. Subban hits the ice on a Canadiens powerplay, the crowd just goes wild. With only 9 seconds left on the Habs powerplay, Markov saw an open Subban at the blue line, Subban received the pass and slapped the puck over the glove of Bruins goalie, Tuuku Rask. The period would end with Canadiens leading 1-0.
      • Montreal: 5 Shots On Goal
      • Boston: 11 Shots On Goal
  • Third Period
    • The Bruins would start the third period with a goal, with only 14 seconds into it. Tyler Seguin backhands one past Price in front of the net. 2 minutes later, David Krejci deflects a pass from Lucic right in the crease of Price, making it 2-1 Bruins. The Habs would try and press forward to score a goal and tie the game, but they could not get past Tuuku Rask. The Bruins would go on to win yet another game, leaving them in top spot.
      • Montreal: 5 Shots On Goal
      • Boston: 8 Shots On Goal
The Canadiens fall into 6th place in conference standings. They face off against the Sabres tonight in Buffalo. The Sabres will look to come back from their previous loss against the Canadiens, in which they had lost 6-1.
