The Canadiens flew to Boston immediately after Tuesday’s 1-0 road loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins and will face the Bruins Wednesday night (7:30 p.m., TSN, RDS, TSN Radio 690).
“We got beat by the best player in the world,” goaltender Carey Price said of Sidney Crosby, who scored the game’s only goal on a bad line change by the Canadiens. “We had a breakdown and he took advantage of it.”
Michael Ryder credited Penguins goaltender Marc-André Fleury for making key saves in the first two periods when the Canadiens outshot the home team 24-12. It was the 13th straight win for the Penguins.
“We were throwing pucks at the net and we were hitting crossbars and posts and Fleury made some big saves,” Ryder said. “You play games that you don’t deserve to win and then you have games like the last two, where we’ve played well and lost. You have to take the positives out of them.”
The Canadiens did not hold a morning skate Wednesday in Boston, but Therrien met with the media at the team’s hotel.
“I told the guys yesterday, you can play with a bad ankle or bad shoulder, but you can’t play with a bad attitude,” Therrien told reporters. “Ours is good.”
Therrien added that Price would start in net against the Bruins and that the rest of the lineup would be a game-time decision.
