Bruins 2, Habs 1: Post-game reaction (video)


The Boston Bruins edged the Canadiens 2-1 Wednesday at the Bell Centre in a game where the Habs’ had plenty of chances to score but couldn’t capitalize on them.

“It was not a bad performance from our club tonight,” Coach Michel Therrien said after the game. “We played the Boston Bruins. And they’re a good team and they’re not easy to play against. You’ve got to fight for every inch.”

There were just a few bad executions –“that I’m sure we’re going to be better (at) next time,” Therrien added. “So that’s the way I see it.”

“I think we worked hard to create those (scoring) chances. And there are nights the puck goes in and there are nights the goalie has the last say so this is exactly what happened to us tonight,” Therrien said.

Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask faced 23 shots.

Defenceman P.K. Subban scored the Canadiens’ lone goal on a power play in the second period. Forwards Tyler Seguin and David Krejci scored for the Bruins.

Before the game, Hamilton Bulldogs forward Blake Geoffrion spoke to reporters at the Bell Centre. It’s the first time he’s spoken to the media in Montreal since he suffered a depressed skull fracture last November when the Bulldogs played the Syracuse Crunch at the Bell Centre.

  1. The Dude says:

    Rask saved their asses in the first”a traditionally fast and furious start for Montreal” and then the pressure of the bigger intimidating Booins players broke the camels back in the 3rd. We need a BIG KILLER 4th line and bigger Dmen period!!!! Trade Gionta ” cause teams will bite” and save $5 mil per and replace Armstrong,Weber, Kaberle with replacements that ARE BIG “MOJO” MF’ers who can DO IT! This short season is all play-off’s and were not Big and Bad enough yet!

  2. Stormin says:

    Game against Buffalo will be a telling point or measuring stick for our compete level, will veterans step up, Sabres will be out for bear after the drubbing they took at Bell Center.

  3. MikeHabs says:

    Very unfortunate loss. Needed to capitalize on all those chances in the first period, came back and haunted the team. Took our foot off the pedal and then didn’t wake up until too late really. Brutal start to the third was the defining moment.

    Tonight is behind us. we loss and gotta move on. Think about Thursday and Saturday. win those two and we’re right back in the thick of things …..

    Want to see a good bounce back effort following this tough loss. The rookies looked exactly like what they are in this one, rookies. A learning experience.

  6. Les Canayens says:

    Hockey journalism in Montreal is way too serious that we’ll never see gems like these ever:

    Jordan Eberle dissed by teammates after scoring a beauty in first game of the season.

    The Oilers decide goalie Devan Dubnyk will play forward.

    Oh the disrespect!

  7. commandant says:

    First few minutes of the third period killed them.

    Go Habs Go!
