Habs Overtake Bruins in Third Period For Win

The Habs played a bit of a lame first period and headed to the first (and second) intermission down 1-0 to the host Boston Bruins before the Habs’ grinders picked up the pace in the third period, exploding for four goals to give the Canadiens a 4-1 win over the boys from Beantown to begin our stretch run.

Carey Price started his first game since well before the Olympic break, stopping 22 of 23 Boston shots and keeping his team in the game during a tight two periods to begin the game. The Habs came alive in the third with goals from Glen Metropolit, Maxin Lapierre, Mathieu Darche (who also added an assist on the Metro goal – I love this guy!) and an empty netter by Benoit Pouliot, freshly back in uniform following his injury in January.

Montreal travels to San Jose for a game against the always-tough Sharks on Thursday before meeting both the L.A. Kings and Anaheim Ducks over the weekend in a tough west road swing.
