Bruins 3, Canadiens 2, SO.
Well now the Bs have a two-game streak against the Habs (11-5-3), and Boston is just a better hockey team right now. But Montreal showed some moxie in the third period after falling behind 2-1. Sure, Tom Kostopoulos pulled that deflection out of from just south of his stomach. But the Canadiens earned that lucky-ass goal with some old-fashioned hard work. I'll take the point. Notes: George Laraque repeatedly but nicely asked Milan Lucic to dance in the first period. Lucic coyly declined (coach's orders). Then he scored in the second period due to a beautiful play by Phil Kessel and some ice capades back-checking by Alex Kovalev. Next game: tomorrow vs. the hated (well in the 80s) Islanders.
