Final: Canadiens 2, Bruins 1

All done in Montreal. Bruins can’t take advantage of late PP.

19:03 3d period, Canadiens 2-1: Lars Eller off for offensive-zone holding penalty on Zdeno Chara. Once last crack at tying it.

9:58 3d period, Canadiens 2-1: Great chance for Ryan White. Odd-man rush with Max Pacioretty. Net-front tip goes over the cage.

7:11 3d period, Canadiens 2-1: Bruins stronger team in third so far. Canadiens look weary.

20:00 2d period, Canadiens 2-1: Bruins defensemen still shaky with the puck. Lots of missed connections. Line changes seem to have stabilized team in second. Montreal not getting as many quality looks.

15:18 2d period, Canadiens 2-1: Money save by Tuukka Rask. Lars Eller with great look in front. Kick save.


14:07 2d period, Canadiens 2-1: Nathan Horton with a net-front chance after a Milan Lucic rush. Goes over the net. Horton seems to have at least one legit look per game. Has to bury those.

11:27 2d period, Canadiens 2-1: Good push by Bruins. Zdeno Chara with point blast. Carey Price stops shot, then gloves Nathan Horton rebound. Excellent pressure by David Krejci line.

7:10 2d period, Canadiens 2-1: Off the draw, Johnny Boychuk fires shot from right point. Daniel Paille beats David Desharnais on faceoff. Looked like puck changed direction.

2:28 2d period, Canadiens 2-0: Tyler Seguin still at right wing. Looks like that center thing is over.

0:57 2d period, Canadiens 2-0: P.K. Subban shot from right point. Michael Ryder with the tip. Might have even deflected off Dennis Seidenberg too.

20:00 1st period, Canadiens 1-0: Very little presence for Bruins in first period. Only power line of Milan Lucic, David Krejci, Nathan Horton intact. Tyler Seguin back to right wing, Rich Peverley in middle, Brad Marchand on left. Daniel Paille-Gregory Campbell-Jaromir Jagr. Jay Pandolfo-Kaspars Daugavins-Shawn Thornton.

19:21 1st period, Canadiens 1-0: Milan Lucic off for cross-checking Tomas Plekanec. Silly. No need for that to finish hit.

13:25 1st period, Canadiens 1-0: Kaspars Daugavins with Shawn Thornton and Jay Pandolfo.


12:21 1st period, Canadiens 1-0: Now Rich Peverley with Tyler Seguin and Brad Marchand.

11:27 1st period, Canadiens 1-0: Jaromir Jagr takes shift in Shawn Thornton’s spot.

10:54 1st period, Canadiens 1-0: Alexei Emelin in rough shape. Tried to throw big hit on Milan Lucic. Lucic saw Emelin coming and sent him flying. Emelin to room.

10:15 1st period, Canadiens 1-0: Tough first few shifts for Matt Bartkowski. Canadiens swarming the young rookie. Has had to bail out several times by slamming puck off glass.

6:49 1st period, Canadiens 1-0: Bad bounce for Bruins. Puck off Matt Bartkowski’s leg and across the line. Alex Galchenyuk credited with goal. Not a good shift for Bartkowski. Gave up puck to P.K. Subban before goal.

1:56 1st period, 0-0: David Krejci clobbers Brendan Gallagher. Francis Bouillon takes exception and has a chat with Krejci. Andrew Ference intercepts and tangles with Bouillon. Both drop mitts, but no punches thrown.

0:00 1st period, 0-0: Aaron Johnson, Wade Redden, and Jordan Caron are the healthy scratches.
