Boston Brewin - Quick Hits

The second game into the Randy Cunneyworth era of the Montreal Canadiens. Anyone else notice how much better the 4th line is playing since they're playing more minutes?

Michael Blunden played 11:43 seconds in the loss to the Boston Bruins on Monday night. While he was a -1, he and his line-mates had great nights. They were working hard, digging in corners, hard on fore-checks, there were the Canadiens best line during the game.

PK Subban while trying to avoid being hit tried to send a fancy pass away with 17:18 to go in the second. His pass missed it's mark being picked up by Andrew Ference who broke a 1-1 tie.

With 5:37 to go in the 3rd, Travis Moen tried to be fancy on a chip out at the Blue line and gave the puck away to Boston's Marchand who scored to give the Bruins a 3-1 lead.

The Canadiens worked hard all night. They looked like a motivated bunch. They lost to a better team. The game had a pretty plodding pace, with both teams trapping. The Bruins took advantage of costly mistakes to win the hockey game.
