Game #2 ~ Montreal Canadiens @ Boston Bruins. Saturday, October 10th, 2015.


Recommended Posts

CANADIENS (1-0-0) at BRUINS (0-1-0)

Season series: The Montreal Canadiens won all four games against the Boston Bruins last season and have won the past five games overall and the past six in Boston. Montreal forwards Max Pacioretty, Brendan Gallagher and Tomas Plekanec each had three goals. Goalie Carey Price was 4-0-0 with a .950 save percentage and a shutout. Loui Eriksson had a goal and two assists for the Bruins.

Canadiens team scope: Montreal continues its season-opening four-game road trip in Boston after starting the season with a 3-1 win against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday. Montreal kept the same lines from the game intact at practice Friday. Newcomer Paul Byron, who was claimed on waivers from the Calgary Flames on Tuesday, rotated with Brian Flynn on the fourth line with Torrey Mitchell and Devante Smith-Pelley. Coach Michel Therrien said Byron would make his Canadiens debut on the road trip but did not say which game. Therrien also announced backup goaltender Michael Condon will make his NHL debut Sunday against the Ottawa Senators and said Price will start against the Bruins.

Bruins team scope: Captain Zdeno Chara, who missed Boston's season-opening game against the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday with an upper-body injury, continued to practice Friday. Chara said after practice he is close to being able to play without discomfort and is continuing to progress. The Bruins have been taking a cautious approach with Chara since he was injured Sept. 24 in a preseason game against the New York Rangers. Forward Seth Griffith, who was ruled out for three-to-four weeks on Sept. 21 because of a knee injury, started skating on his own this week.

So creative Clues. Missed those. Love it. :D

Thanks! It was a little bit time consuming, so I'm glad you like it. :)

Thanks Clues. Very good. Now let us hope the boys keep the streak alive against the Booins! Go Habs!

Thanks for the GDT, Clues :) . Hope to see you online again tonight.

You're welcome! And yes, I will be here again tonight. :D

The Canadiens will begin a series of three games in four nights away from the friendly confines of the Bell Centre on Saturday night in Boston.

Michel Therrien’s troops won their first game of the year on Wednesday night when they downed the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-1. Max Pacioretty scored twice, P.K. Subban collected three assists, Carey Price made 36 stops and Alex Galchenyuk scored the game-winner in the third period.

For their part, the Bruins suffered a 6-2 loss at the hands of the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday night in Boston. David Pastrnak and David Krejci were the lone Bruins to light the lamp.

Zdeno Chara was not in the lineup for Boston due to an upper-body injury. His status for Saturday night’s game remains uncertain, but he's likely not playing, considering the fact that he did some extra skating post morning skate.

Therrien should be featuring the same lineup that downed Mike Babcock’s squad earlier in the week. That means that Paul Byron, Jarred Tinordi and Greg Pateryn will likely be healthy scratches for a second straight game.

Carey Price will get the start in goal and square off against Tuukka Rask.

The Canadiens won all four of their games against the Bruins last season, outscoring their Original Six rivals by a 16-6 margin along the way.

If the Peg can beat them,,,, I'm sure we should be able to.


We should be able to too. razz_zpsssvzrdf3.gif

I've got the full command centre setup going tonight. Our game on the big TV, a little TV with the Leafs-Sens game, and the forum on my laptop. All I need now is an extra monitor for stats and research!

....and some Crown Royal Banana.
