Bruins pick up ninth straight win

Associated Press  |  Last updated November 21, 2011
Tim Thomas made 33 saves for his second straight shutout and the Boston Bruins extended their winning streak to nine games with a 1-0 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Monday night. Andrew Ference scored his second goal 15:41 in for Boston, which has not lost since dropping two in a row to Montreal from Oct. 27-29. Thomas got his third shutout of the season, including a 23-save effort in a 6-0 road win over the New York Islanders on Saturday. It was his 29th regular-season shutout. The Bruins have outscored their opponents 46-14 over the course of the streak, their longest since a 10-game run from Dec. 12, 2008 to Jan. 1, 2009. Carey Price, who stopped 17 shots, had shutouts in each of his past two starts. Ference's goal ended his shutout streak at 148 minutes, 11 seconds. The Canadiens, who beat the New York Rangers 4-0 on Saturday night, have lost two of three. Rich Peverley exchanged passes with Chris Kelly on the right side of Montreal's zone to set up the game's only goal. After getting the return pass, Peverley fed the puck across to Ference, who beat Price with a wrist shot into the top right corner. Price denied Milan Lucic in the third after the Boston left wing was sent in alone on a pass by Nathan Horton. Peverley cross-checked Michael Cammalleri to give the Canadiens a power play for the final 1:39. Travis Moen misfired on a short-handed 2-on-1 in the first on what proved to be one of Montreal's few scoring chances. NOTES: The Bruins' longest winning streak is 14 games from Dec. 3, 1929 to Jan. 9, 1930. ... Canadiens D P.K. Subban played his 100th regular-season game.
