Bruins Notes: Odd Scheduling To Make For Fascinating Week In Canadiens Rivalry

Bruins Notes: Odd Scheduling To Make For Fascinating Week In Canadiens Rivalry

A scary scene unfolded in Montreal on Saturday night when Canadiens forward Phillip Danault took a slap shot to the head from the stick of Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara.

Danault left the ice on stretcher and was taken to hospital, where the team said in a statement he was conscious and moving.

David Krejci stormed back with an wonderful effort to knot things up at 3-3 before the end of the second period, and it was in the third that the Black and Gold turned the pressure up on Carey Price, peppering Price for 10 shots at the halfway mark frame. The 24-year-old Danault was moving and speaking to medical staff before he departed to an ovation from the Bell Centre crowd.

Chara and other players from both teams gathered around Danault while he was down.




Conversely, the Bruins, who hold the second spot in the division, are looking to gain ground on the Tampa Bay Lightning, who hold the top spot in the division (and conference), as well as the Metropolitan Division-leading Washington Capitals, who hold a four-point advantage on the Bruins with four more games played. "We did a good job and look forward to the next one". The Canadiens fired Michel Therrien and hired Julien in short order, the second time the franchise brought in Julien after dismissing Therrien.

"You never want to see that", Julien said.

"I wanted to make sure he was OK and was responding". Victor Mete, playing his first game back after helping Canada win world junior championship gold, picked up an assist when the rebound of his point shot was tucked inside the post by the captain of the Canadiens. Brad Marchand scored his team-leading 18th of the season late in the first period during a Boston power play. Marchand tied the game with a power-play goal at 17:48.

DeBrusk was sent in alone by Charlie McAvoy to beat Carey Price with a high shot 2:55 into the second frame. So after Saturday, the Bruins will again see the Habs on Wednesday and Saturday, with tilts against the Dallas Stars and New York Islanders mixed in on Monday and Thursday as well.
