Montreal Canadiens: Seven for Seven

Francois GendronSenior Writer IMarch 21, 2008

With yesterday's 4-2 win, the Montreal Canadiens defeated the Boston Bruins for a seventh time in seven game between the two teams this season.


Alex Kovalev, who had two goals and one assist, led the Canadiens' offense.
 
The Russian player just released a DVD this week in which he displays his skills and training methods. The profits of the sales of the DVD will be given to charity.
 
Kovalev showcased his stickhandling skills in front of the Bruins' defense before leaving Bruins' goaltender Tim Thomas clueless.

Andrei Kostitsyn and Michael Ryder scored the other goals for Montreal.

Montreal will have the chance to sweep the Bruins when they met for an eighth and final time on Saturday evening.
 
With 92 points, the Canadiens are now back in first place in the Eastern conference, one point ahead of the New Jersey Devils and the Pittsburgh Penguins.
