It was a must-win game for the Canadiens and they didn’t disappoint the louder-than-usual 21,273 crowd at the Bell Centre on Monday with a convincing 4-0 win over the Boston Bruins in a thrilling, fast-paced game.
“Everyone was on board,”said Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty who scored his first goal in the series, beating Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask on a breakaway.
“We saw that from the first shift. Everyone was skating,” he said.
“We’re a fast team and when we use our speed we’re frustrating to play against. And I think we were able to do that tonight. No passengers. Everyone played their best tonight,” added Pacioretty who also picked up an assist on Thomas Vanek’s power play goal.
