Aside from the first period, the team that had dominated the Montreal-Boston matchup did nothing against a textbook Black-and-Gold performance.
The Bruins ended an 0-4-1 slide against the Canadiens with a 4-1 win at the Bell Centre on Wednesday. The outcome was not that close. Peter Budaj, subbing for an ailing Carey Price, submitted a vanilla 28-save start. The legs that skated with such frenzy in the first 20 minutes went missing for the final 40. Montreal’s power play, which can put up video-game numbers, was blanked on three opportunities.
