The Bruins will be back at practice tomorrow morning at the Garden and, with the way their play deteriorated in their 2-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens tonight, it doesn't promise to be a pleasant session.

BOSTON -- Benoit Pouliot didn't bother to try to hide the extra motivation he has for Thursday's contest against the Canadiens. "You face your old team, you obviously want to prove that, 'You didn't want to keep me, I'll show you,'" Pouliot said after the team's morning skate. "It pumps you up even more." Pouliot came to Boston this...
There were a total of three Boston College Eagles selected in the 1998 NHL entry draft -- one of which happens to be the current captain of the Montreal Canadiens, forward Brian Gionta. However, the undersized Gionta wasn't the first Eagle to hear his name called in that late-June weekend, as it was the Boston Bruins who plucked an Eagle with their second-round (52nd-overall...
Patrice Bergeron collected one early Christmas present, but left another one under the tree last night.
Well, that's... weird. The Bruins find themselves in last place after falling to the Canadiens on Thursday night, 2-1. Tomas Plekanec scored two goals, one against each team, and the highlight of the game was a much-anticipated fight between Brad Marchand and P.K. Subban. Unfortunately, the Bruins weren't able to translate the energy from that fight into a goal, and the team...
1) Had it run through Max Pacioretty's mind, in that moment against the Florida Panthers in which he realized something was too wrong with his wrist to return to the game, that he may miss the two games he's had circled on his calender since the schedule was released?
"Absolutely," said Pacioretty after a dominant performance against the Flyers last night.
Carey Price made 21 saves for his 100th win and Max Pacioretty had two goals and an assist and the Montreal Canadiens ended a six-game losing streak with a 5-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday night.
Pacioretty assisted on Andrei Kostitsyn's goal 10:26 into the second and scored 2:12 later to make it 3-1. He added his second goal of the game in the third.
The first goal in any game is vitally important, but when it's two rivals like the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens, it could be a momentum swing.
Luckily for Tomas Plekanec and Carey Price, the blooper they hooked up on during a defensive zone faceoff late in the first period didn't sink the Canadiens in the end.

Tomas Plekanec put one in each net, making up for an own goal by scoring the tiebreaker with 9:14 remaining on Thursday night to give the Montreal Canadiens a 2-1 victory over the Boston Bruins.
There are few positives to take away from the Montreal Canadiens’ 5-1 trouncing of the Flyers. The organization literally fired its assistant coach this afternoon for having its worst start in about 70 years, and yet the bleu blanc et rouge somehow managed to expose the Flyers on the back end.

The Montreal Canadiens fired assistant coach Perry Pearn prior to Wednesday night's game against the Philadelphia Flyers.
Tomas Plekanec put one in each net, making up for an own goal by scoring the tiebreaker with 9:14 remaining on Thursday night to give the Montreal Canadiens a 2-1 victory over the Boston Bruins. It was the teams' first meeting since a seven-game series in the first round of the playoffs that Boston won en route to its sixth Stanley Cup championship.
