Bruins Drop Wild One in Shootout

In a game that went back and forth more than Hamlet deciding whether or not to be, the Buffalo Sabres emerged with a 7-6, shootout win.

Habs Handle Bruins, 4-3

The Bruins were forced to play catch-up, almost from the first minute of action Thursday night in Montreal.  The B’s would never catch the Habs however, falling to the Canadiens, 4-3 at Bell Centre.  The win snapped a season-long three-game losing streak for Montreal, while the Bruins squandered their chance to tie the Canadiens atop […]
