For the second Saturday in a row, the Montreal Canadiens face their old rivals the Bruins, this time in Boston.
Bruins lead 1-0 in the 1st period.
Jesse Ylonen and Johnathan Kovacevic received penalties 13 seconds apart, and Charlie McAvoy took advantage of the opportunity and opened the score five on three with a strong shot. It is his third goal this season.
After a spectacular start to the season where he didn’t suffer a single regular season loss in four starts, Allen hasn’t had the same success in recent outings. The 33-year-old veteran has lost his last three matches.
for his part, Jordan Harris will return to action after missing the last two games with an upper body injury.
Martin St-Louis’ team will try to get back to winning ways, after being defeated in their last three away games. Prior to this streak, the Canadiens defeated those same Bruins 3-2 last Saturday at the Bell Centre.
With the Sharks win earlier this week, the Habs are now last in the NHL in regular season wins with a slim total of two.
The task will be tough Saturday night at TD Garden. The Bruins are atop the Atlantic Division with an impressive 12-1-2 record.
“It’s always motivating to come and play here,” he said Brendan Gallagher. Matches against the Bruins always offer a high level of intensity. We know their crowd will be loud as usual. We want to use the trip to spend time together and find ways to win games. »
