Sunday’s game didn’t start the way the Bruins planned.
Unlike Boston’s shellacking of the Canadiens on Tuesday, Montreal started Sunday’s game much differently, jumping out to an early lead less than two minutes into the contest.
The Bruins struggled throughout the first period in the neutral zone, leading to multiple opportunities for the Canadiens. Montreal entered the contest winless in its last seven contests.
