It was a tough second night of back to back games in Montreal last night.

  • In a nutshell, the game involved scoring lots of goals, but not all counted. Tuukka Rask did not have a good night. NBC Sports Boston
  • I REPEAT- TUUKKA RASK DID NOT HAVE A GOOD NIGHT! Bonus- Give the kid Zach Senyshyn another look. 985 The Sports Hub
  • But hey, the game was played with pace and physicality, which was entertaining. Boston Globe
  • More reason for cheer- David Pastrnak remains en fuego, which is nice. 985 The Sports Hub
  • Just you try to overlook Pastrnak for the Hart Trophy! The Score
  • Three observations from the game include questioning the purpose of offside review. Bruins Daily
  • The Bruins’ toughest opponent this season? Video review. Causeway Crowd
  • On the other hand, this Bruins team is one that has relied heavily on their top line and power play prowess, which is pretty much playing with fire. Puck Prose
  • One high point of the game was the Montreal crowd acknowledging Zdeno Chara’s 1500th NHL game with a standing ovation. NBC Sports Boston
  • As for the Penguins, they should have quit while they were ahead on Monday and should NOT have gleefully poked the bear on Twitter. NESN

NHL Standings:

  • The Bruins lead the Atlantic Division NHL and trail only the Capitals in the Eastern Conference. NHL In the league overall, Boston reamins in second place behind only Washington. (The standings remain pretty static, but links are NOT) NHL
