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.
