Bruins Hold Off Canadiens for Win

Since when could the Bruins win in Montreal?

A week after the All-Star Game in Montreal, the Bruins returned to Canada for a date with the Habs. Goaltender Tim Thomas was solid in net, turning away 27 saves to lead the Bruins past the Canadiens 3-1. Dennis Wideman, Shawn Thornton, and Marc Savard (empty-netter) each scored for the B’s, who won their fourth straight overall against their archrivals.

Last season, the Bruins were winless in eight regular season games against the Canadiens (0-7-1) before the amazing first round playoff series in which the B’s forced Game 7. A lot has changed since last season. A year older and wiser, the Bruins are now 4-0-1 this season against Montreal.

Robert Lang scored his team-leading 18th goal 18:18 into the first period. He left the game with 9:33 to go in the third period. He hit the ice after favoring his left leg from a hit from Stephane Yelle. He did not return to action.

The Bruins next play at Philadelphia for the first time this season.
