Clues Posted January 18, 2016 Report Share Posted January 18, 2016 Tuesday, January 19th, 2016. BRUINS (23-16-5) at CANADIENS (23-19-4) TV: NESN, RDS, SNE 7:30pm Season series: The Montreal Canadiens have defeated the Boston Bruins in three of four games, including a 5-1 victory in the 2016 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic at Gillette Stadium on Jan. 1. Forward Tomas Plekanec leads the Canadiens with two goals and five points. Forward Patrice Bergeron leads the way for the Bruins with two goals and an assist. Bruins team scope: Center David Krejci practiced with his teammates for the first time since he sustained an upper-body injury in a game against the Ottawa Senators on Dec. 27. He and forward David Pasternak, who has missed the past three games with an upper-body injury, accompanied the team to Montreal. They skated on a fifth line in practice with extra forward Tyler Randell, so they are unlikely to play on Tuesday. "I need to feel 100 percent skating and 100 percent shooting. I'm getting there, but it was a good day today," Krejci told the Bruins website. Coach Claude Julien confirmed defenseman Adam McQuaid has not skated since he sustained an upper-body injury on a hit from behind by Washington Capitals forward Zach Sill on Jan. 5. After back-to-back wins against the Buffalo Sabres on Friday and Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday, the Bruins moved one point in front of Montreal in the Atlantic Division with two games in hand. Canadiens team scope: After back-to-back road losses, 4-3 in overtime to the St. Louis Blues on Saturday and 5-2 to the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday, the Canadiens did not practice on Monday. Goalie Carey Price (lower body) and defenseman Tom Gilbert (lower body) remain out. Since Dec. 1, the Canadiens have gone 5-15-1 for the worst record in the NHL during this span and a minus-23 goal differential. "We're all pros," forward Brendan Gallagher told the Canadiens website after the loss Sunday. "We understand that when things aren't going right, people are going to ask questions. But it's important for us to stick together as a team. That's what we're talking about. We're going to get out of this. It's taking longer than we would have liked, but we're going to get out of this. The only way we're going to do that is by sticking together as a group."
