A tidy 4-2 win in Boston, and the Canadiens continue their smokin’ hot October, sitting atop the Eastern Conference with nine points in five games.
A great start, like last year, and which is why I won’t mention it anymore.
Montreal would score twice in the second period, the first coming when Gally one-timed a nice pass from Max, and Phillip Danault converted a beautiful feed from Alexander (Sasha) Radulov.
In the third frame, Paul Byron burst in alone while shorthanded to make it 3-1, and Torrey Mitchell notched his team’s fourth goal after creating a big turnover in Boston’s end.
A big win from this red-hot bunch, and always extra fine when it’s the Bruins involved.
Canadiens outshot Boston 29-21 and their four goals scored per game average remains intact.
They also went 0/5 on the power play, which is about normal I suppose.
Misha Sergachev was a healthy scratch, replaced by Greg Pateryn.
Next up – Monday, when it’s the Flyers’ turn to get pummeled.
At the moment I’m under the weather, and my nose is dripping on the keyboard. Then I get the drippings on my fingertips which will touch loose change in the near future, with the change being touched by the clerk at the 7/11 who will give it to unsuspecting customers who will then pass the change on when they leave a tip on the table at the pub, and pretty soon all of the Powell River region will be under the weather, all because I was dripping on the keyboard.
So I have to cut this short because at the moment I’m feeling hot. Like the Habs, only different.
