Bruins Rout Canadiens to Take 2-0 Series Lead

The Bruins need just two wins in the next five games to move onto the second round for the first time since 1999 after beating the arch rival Montreal Canadiens 5-1 on Saturday night. Marc Savard finished with two goals and two assists to help the Bruins dominate.

The B’s were without Matt Hunwick, who was rushed to the hospital prior to the game for a spleen ailment. His replacement, Shane Hnidy, finished with a goal after not playing in Game 1.

Tim Thomas finished with 30 saves in 31 opportunities to earn his second straight playoff win.

Sadly, this series is far from over because the Bruins still have to travel north to Montreal. I think the Habs will definitely take at least one game on their home ice, but I still think the Bruins have the edge in the series (the B’s are 7-0-1 against Montreal this season including the playoffs).

Game 3 is Monday at 7 p.m.
