The Bruins found themselves on the trailing end of a 2-1 game Saturday night against the Canadiens. The goal that sealed their fate was actually tipped into the net over Tuukka Rask’s shoulder by the Bruins’ own Dennis Seidenberg.
Early in the second period, the Canadiens gathered a dump pass in the B’s defensive zone, and all four Bruins found themselves down too close to the baseline. The gaps in defense left the space in front of the net wide open.
Canadiens defensemen P.K. Subban had enough space to rip a shot toward the goal, and after redirections by Michael Ryder and Seidenberg, Rask had no chance at saving the shot.
