The last time the Bruins hosted the Canadiens at TD Garden on January 30th, their guests trounced them 4-1.

Not THIS time, Canadiens! Andrej Meszaros, Zdeno Chara, and Brad Marchand celebrate.

Turnabout is fair play. The Bruins beat the Canadians 4-1 in Montreal last night.

  • The game synopsis, straight up and neat. [NewEnglandHockeyJournal]
  • Although the first period seemed shaky, the Bruins soundly beat the Canadiens at the Centre Bell, after having been embarrassed last time at TD Garden. Key matchups neutralized Max Pacioretty, Thomas Vanek, and Malcolm's brother. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • Although the Merlot line (with Jordan Caron in for Daniel Paille) spent some long stretches in their own zone, the Canadiens were unable to score on them for two periods, and were unable to convert on three breakaways. [WEEI]
  • Jarred Tinordi had a tough night, "I Play Like Carl" Söderberg is on a four-game point streak, and Montreal failed to score on three power plays. [UnionLeader]
  • It was all on Tuukka Rask for the first twenty minutes, and he delivered. The second period opened with the Bruins' layered coverage and forecheck, then Söderberg opened the scoring floodgates. [TheBostonGlobe]
