Montreal is 5-1-2, with their wins and losses coming against a pretty balanced slate of games. They’ve beaten Pittsburgh twice (once in the shootout), yet have lost to the Ottawa Senators, as well as the Buffalo Sabres last night. It’s... a bit of a mixed bag. They do still have one of the best goalies in the game in Carey Price.
Goals: Brendan Gallagher, 5
Assists: Jeff Petry, 8
Points: Max Domi has 10, Petry has 9, and Tomas Tatar has 8.
Other notes: Jonathan Drouin needs a haircut.
- With Kevan Miller, Charlie McAvoy, and Torey Krug, and Urho Vaakanainen recovering from injury, Jeremy Lauzon draws into his second career NHL game. He played well in his first opportunity, and there’s hope that the depth in Providence might contribute sooner rather than later to the Bruins’ current success. Krug may well return, as well - he wasn’t with the injured crop of players during the pregame skate this morning.
- With Jaroslav Halak starting against Philly, look for Tuukka Rask to return to the net tonight. Lines post coming later.
- This seems important: Boston Bruins Brazil calls Charlie McAvoy ‘Braveheart’, according to translation services on Twitter: (that would be Coracao Valente; forgive my English keyboard, Brazilians)
We hope you all slept in after the Red Sox game last night!
