Canadiens vs Bruins second period thread

The Canadiens escaped a dominant first period by the Bruins with a 1-0 lead.



06:39 MTL PPG - Alexei Emelin (3) Snap shot - ASST: Daniel Brière (11), Brian Gionta (21) 1 - 0 MTL



01:19 BOS Zdeno Chara Roughing - 2 min against Alexei Emelin

04:50 BOS Kevan Miller served by Shawn Thornton Cross checking - 2 min against Dale Weise

04:50 BOS Kevan Miller Fighting (maj) - 5 min against Travis Moen

04:50 MTL Travis Moen Fighting (maj) - 5 min against Kevan Miller

20 minutes into the game, the Canadiens are down two wingers due to injury, but up one goal after Alexei Emelin fired one in off of the stick of Chris Kelly.

The Bruins absolutely took it to the Canadiens in the first period, outshooting Montreal 10-5 in spite of having to kill two penalties.

It's been a goon show so far from the Bruins, and the Canadiens' lineup deficiencies, namely Bouillon and Murray, are exceedingly obvious against such a strong, deep, well coached team.
