First Period:

Hey, the Bruins should be amped up for this right? Bruins vs. Canadiens in their home barn? Nope, 1-0 Canadiens 31 seconds in on a shot that deflected off of Chara and in.

Not to fret though, the Bruins SUPERLINE (TM) of Pastrnak, Marchand and St. Patrice tie it up shortly afterwards on a beautiful sequence.

Second Period:

With that felt like a much scrutinized career under Julien, Ryan Spooner gets some retribution on the scoreboard. And yes, it appears Spooner STILL can score on teams not named the Ottawa Senators.

Third Period:

The Bruins started the 3rd with 48 seconds of PP time due to a Froese penalty late in the 2nd period. They can’t convert. They get another PP 2 and a half minutes in on a De LaRose penalty. This time they don’t disappoint with a Marchand goal off a weak pass from Krug, to Bergy to Marchand who buries it. 3-1 good guys and the Garden is going nuts!

Froese takes another penalty (tripping) but the Bruins give a halfhearted, sloppy effort and don’t score despite missing an open net at one point. David Krejci scores an empty netter to make it 4-1, assist to David Backes. The rest of the game winds down with some pretty uninspiring effort from both teams.
