Canadiens-Bruins: Montreal Tops Boston 8-2

The Montreal Canadiens defeated the Boston Bruins once again this season. This time, a convincing 8-2 victory was in store for the fans gathered at the Bell Centre.

Montreal has now won the last nine meeting with the Bruins. The line changes performed by head coach Guy Carbonneau gave very good results.
 
The Canadiens dominated the game from start to finish. It took only 14 seconds to score the first goal of the evening.

Michael Ryder scored his eighth goal of the season during the first period while Tom Kostopoulos scored twice and was named the first star of the game. Andrei Kostitsyn, Mike Komisarek, and Bryan Smolinski also scored a goal each for Montreal.
 
After the first period, the four Montreal offensive lines had already scored a goal.

Boston’s goaltenders Alex Auld and Tim Thomas could do nothing to stop Montreal from scoring at will during the game. The Bruins have lost six straight games versus the Habs this season. If we consider that Boston has lost a total of 19 games in regulation this far, Montreal represents nearly 33% of Boston’s losses this season.

The Canadiens will play the New-Jersey Devils on Thursday evening. This is the team’s last game before the All-Star game break.
