The Boston Bruins came back from being behind twice, scoring four unanswered goals in the third period to take down the Montreal Canadiens 5-2.
The Gold and Black were down 2-1 entering the third period. Despite outshooting the Canadiens 20-10 in the second. “In the second period we had zero puck luck,” Bruce Cassidy said. “In the third, we stuck with it and got lots.”
Charlie McAvoy and Charlie Coyle would both score twice, McAvoy’s first time his career. McAvoy looks to be getting hot at the right time, scoring five points in the past two games.
The Bruins plan of attack looked to be to get shots on goal, outshooting the Canadiens 41-29. McAvoy and Taylor Hall would lead the team with seven shots and only three forwards didn’t have a shot on goal.
“It’s not one of 82 when it’s Montreal. It isn’t to me, anyway, and it shouldn’t be to anybody who knows anything about the Boston Bruins…we want to beat them every time we step on the ice, and that’s the attitude we need to have around here,” said Cassidy.
The B’s will get another break in the action, as they don’t play again until Saturday. They will travel to Philadelphia to play the Flyers, who won their first matchup against Boston, 6-3.
