Earlier tonight in Boston, the Montreal Canadiens and the Boston Bruins were tied for 2nd in the East and both teams were looking to jump ahead by a point or two. 4 minutes in, Plekanec centred the puck to Ryder and he scored to make it 1-0. Then shorthanded, Bergeron came in on a 2 on 1 and he played the puck to Marchand and he was stopped by Price. The shots in the first were 9 to 6 Bruins and the Habs had a 1-0 lead. 3 minutes into the second, Subbans point shot found the back of the net to make it 2-0. 40 seconds later, Hamilton would score to cut the lead to 1.
4 minutes later, Marchands shot from the slot went wide and bounced off the rear end boards and back in front to Marchand and he scored to tie the game. Then with the Bruins on the powerplay, Peverleys one timer was blocked and it went right to Bergeron and he scored to give Boston the lead. Horton would add another goal to make it 4-2 going into the third, The shots in the second were, 17 - 5 Boston. To start the third, Peter Budaj was in goal for the Habs as Carey Price was yanked after giving up 4 goals on 26 shots.
4 minutes in, Plekanec came in on a 2 on 1 and he played the puck to Ryder and he scored to cut the lead to 1. But at the half way point of the third, Seguin had a breakaway and scored to make it 5-3. 28 seconds later, Gallaghers shot hit the face of Seidenberg and went right back to Gallagher and he scored to cut the lead to 1. Then with 10 seconds to go, the Habs pulled the goalie and were on a powerplay. Markovs point shot went off the stick of Chara and in to tie the game with 8.2 seconds to go.
So were off to Overtime. The shots in the third were 15 to 11 Montreal. O.t would solve nothing so we would need a shootout. The shootout went 6 rounds until Gallagher scored five hole to end it and give Montreal a 1 point lead over the Bruins. In the win, Budaj made 16 saves. In the loss, Rask made 23 saves. The Montreal Canadiens were asleep for the first 2 periods, but they woke up in the third and found a way to get the important 2 points.
Now I have breaking news out of Calgary regarding Jerome Iginla.The Flames have traded Captain Iginla to the Boston Bruins for Matt Bartkowski and Alex Khokhlachev. This trade has been confirmed by Aaron Ward of TSN. The trade will officially be announced tomorrow morning.
