The Bruins now are on the brink of elimination after a 1-0 shutout loss to the rival Canadiens. Montreal’s Patrice Brisebois scored with just 42 seconds left in the second period for the only goal of the game.
That was all the scoring that goaltender Carey Price needed as he pitched his first playoff shutout. He stopped all 27 shots he faced as he looks to become the third rookie goaltender to lead the Canadiens to the Stanley Cup.
Tim Thomas stopped 27 shots as well, but his excellent goaltending wasn’t enough to hold off Montreal.
Let’s face it, the Bruins need more offense. They’ve only scored five goals in four games. Yuck…now the Bruins have to go to Montreal to extend the series. They’ll get their chance Thursday night.
