Playing in Montreal is fun, isn’t it? I mean, you have the fun of rabid fans, a cultural divide, and an intense rivalry stretching back more than half a century. Always cool. The only problem lies in the fact that both teams actually have to play the game and you can’t just sit back and marvel at the sight of hockey in Montreal. So it was on the Bruins to pull ahead of their divisional rivals on the road. Try as they might, things went badly for them in the first period. This has been a recent pattern for them, flailing in the first and recovering in the second. Unfortunately, by the time they managed that they had already fallen behind by two goals on the road, and with their current offense you can probably predict how everything went from there.

Daniel Paille was credited with a goal on a Johnny Boychuck shot that was deflected over Carey Price a little under halfway though the 2nd. Unfortunately the team couldn’t add on from there, as they couldn’t entirely keep Montreal out of their own zone and never tied thing up. Boston’s first power-play of the game didn’t arrive until there was under a minute left in the game, at which point they oddly failed to so much as record a shot on net as time ran out. Holding onto the puck is usually a bad way to score, but that’s how Boston’s power-play functioned in the brief time they had to work with tonight. With the loss the B’s fell three points behind Montreal with eleven games left to play. It’s an uphill battle here on out for Boston, they have to pass Montreal without playing them again. Next up on Monday are the Hurricanes, they should make an easier target than the Habs did. Tune in.
