Canadiens beat Bruins for first time since 2019
After an overtime win in Detroit, the CH was back in action tonight. For the occasion, it faced the Boston Bruins.

The team hasn’t won against the Bruins since November 2019. That’s a long time…

Here’s Martin St-Louis’ lineup:

Rafaël Harvey-Pinard was back in the lineup.

And here’s the lineup for Quebec’s Jim Montgomery.

As was the case against the Tampa Bay Lightning earlier in the week, the Canadiens started the game on the back foot.

Pavel Zacha scored just 36 seconds into the game. Charlie McAvoy, who was back in action after serving his four-game suspension, and Brad Marchand picked up assists.

Montreal didn’t let itself be dominated during this period. It allowed only five shots to the visitors.

The hosts had a few chances to score, but nothing more.

Brendan Gallagher was surprisingly the most used forward in the first frame.

At the start of the season, remember that he was often among the least used.

No goals were scored in the second period. Yet the Habs played five-on-three for 25 seconds.

After 40 minutes of play, Montreal led 17-13 in shots on goal. Despite trailing by a goal at that point, the CH was playing a very good game.

However, the Habs started the third period in lion’s clothing. First, Nick Suzuki scored on the power play.

27 seconds later, Brendan Gallagher scored a beautiful goal in his office.

The wind had suddenly changed.

But Brad Marchand brought everyone back to square one at the end of the game.

The score remained the same until overtime.

We had to keep an eye on Cole Caufield during this extra period. But it was his teammate Kaiden Guhle who sealed the deal.

He scored his first goal of the season.

Final score: 3-2 Canadian. It was the opponents’ third defeat of the season.

The team returns to action tomorrow night. It hosts the Vancouver Canucks.


– There were plenty of empty benches in the red section.

– All three Montreal teams (Carabins, Alouettes and Canadien) won their games today. In fact, the Alouettes taunted the Argos.

– Alex Newhook can never be blamed for his lack of hustle.

– The players served up some good checking tonight.

– Josh Anderson simply can’t buy a goal this season. He had his chances tonight.
