Number One

Coming off a close shootout loss against the Penguins, the Canadiens would look to bounce back last night against the Boston Bruins. With a win against Boston, the Canadiens would be back in first place in the Eastern Conference standings.
  • First Period
    • Midway through the first period, Tomas Plekanec would score as he positioned himself right in front of the Bruins net and shot it glove side on Tuuku Rask. With only a minute later, the Bruins win the face off in the Canadiens zone, Tyler Seguin would get a pass right in front of net beating Budaj as he ties the game. Only 16 seconds later, David Desharnais would redirect it into the Bruins net, putting the Canadiens up by 1 as they head into the second.
      • Montreal: 14 Shots On Goal
      • Boston: 9 Shots On Goal 
  • Second Period
    • Just 4 minutes into the second, Patrice Bergeron would tie this game at 2 as he would jam at the puck, as Budaj was down. Midway through the second, we would have some 4 on 4 action. As the Bruins would rush, Dougie Hamilton was left all alone at the side of the net,  Budaj made an effort to get to the side, but his effort would be a left a little short as the Bruins would take the 3-2 lead heading into the third.
      • Montreal: 8 Shots On Goal
      • Boston: 15 Shots On Goal
  • Third Period
    • 6 minutes into the third, Max Pacioretty just wrists one past Rask tying this game at 3. 3 minutes later, David Desharnais would score his second of the night putting the Canadiens up by a goal once again. The Bruins would try and pressure to score the tying goal, but it would be Budaj who would stand strong. The Canadiens would hang on for a close 4-3 victory.
      • Montreal: 4 Shots On Goal
      • Boston: 10 Shots On Goal
With a win against Boston, the Canadiens are back on top in the Eastern Conference standings. The Canadiens play the Islanders in New York tomorrow night.
