Bruins vs Habs – Game Recap

Habs' PA Parenteau

Jiri Sekac and Pierre-Alexandre Parenteau both scored their first goal with the Canadiens, while the Desharnais line dominated on offense. Everyone chipped in and the Habs defeated the Boston Bruins by a score of 6-4 at the Bell Centre.

The Habs found a way to redeem themselves after a humiliating 7-1 loss Monday night in Tampa Bay. The bleu, blanc et rouge now have four wins in five games this season.

The Bruins, however, suffered its fourth loss in six games. With the loss of two important veterans, Jarome Iginla and Johnny Boychuk, Claude Julien’s team is looking to find their identity.

The Bruins had things under control by the halfway mark of the game. Torey Krug and Carl Soderberg scored three minutes apart giving Boston a 3-2 lead.

Montreal’s defense struggled at times, causing several turnovers. Then came Jiri Sekac’s goal, his first in the NHL, which revived the Habs. The Czech should be grateful to linemate Rene Bourque, who cleared the front of the net, pushing away Dennis Seidenberg.

Barely a minute later, it was Pierre-Alexandre Parenteau’s turn to score, his 74th in the NHL, but more importantly, his first in a Habs jersey.

Brendan Gallagher’s second goal of the game marked the end of the evening for Tuukka Rask.

The Desharnais line combined for eight points in the game.

Zdeno Chara and Simon Gagné scored the other goals for the Bruins.
