Andrei Markov tied it with 8.2 seconds left in regulation, and Brendan Gallagher scored the only shootout goal to give the Montreal Canadiens a 6-5 victory over the Boston Bruins on Wednesday night. The victory snapped a tie for the second-most points in the Eastern Conference, giving the Canadiens 47. They lead the Northeast Division by a point over the Bruins. In the shootout, all six Bruins players were stopped. The first five Canadiens couldn't score, either. Then Gallagher put the puck between Tuukka Rask's pads. It capped a comeback after Boston had taken a 5-3 lead on Tyler Seguin's 11th goal of the season at 11:50 of the third period. Gallagher scored 28 seconds later, then Markov tied it on a power play. With Aaron Johnson in the penalty box for delay of game, Markov's shot from the left point appeared to go in off the stick of Boston's Zdeno Chara. Gallagher, also in front, initially was credited with the goal before an official scoring change gave ...

Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask has epic freak out, falls down after slamming stick (Video)

Last night, the Boston Bruins fell to the Montreal Canadiens by the score of 6-5 in a shoot-out and it appears that Boston goalie Tuukka Rask was not pleased with losing in a shoot-out.

The cavalry arrives: Jarome Iginla traded to the Boston Bruins

Sure, Wednesday night’s game sucked. It sucked a lot. The Boston Bruins are officially currently the third best team in the Eastern Conference and no amount of talk about “games in hand” or the hot start can change that fact. This team had issues, notably with depth scoring and defense. Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli fixed one of those issues late Wednesday night/early...

Bruins Can’t Close Out Canadiens Amidst Playoff Atmosphere in Boston

BOSTON — Walking into TD Garden on Wednesday night, you couldn’t help but feel spring. The sun was still up, splashing the Zakim Bridge with fans scurrying about getting their pizza and beer fix before heading into the big concrete building on Causeway. It felt like playoff hockey. That feeling only intensified soon thereafter as the latest installment of Bruins-Canadiens was...

GIF: Tuukka Rask wasn't happy losing to Montreal

The Boston Bruins lost to the Montreal Canadiens in a shootout after leading by a score of 4-2 after two periods. The Bruins weren't very happy with the result (obviously), but no one displayed their frustration quite like Tuukka Rask. Rask decided to take out his frustration by swinging his stick at the boards as he skated off the ice. The result went about as well as the...

Bruins Claim Kaspars Daugavins Off Waivers

The Bruins made a surprise pickup on Wednesday when they added former Senator Kaspars Daugavins (yes, that Kaspars Daugavins) after claiming him off of waivers. The Senators placed the 24-year-old forward on waivers on Monday. It’s a low-risk, cheap move by B’s GM Peter Chiarelli that has the potential to give the Bruins roster a bit more depth on the bottom half. Daugavins...

Bruins-Canadiens Live: B’s, Habs Meet at Garden in Huge Northeast Division Tilt

8 a.m. ET: This one has been circled on the calendar since March 3. That was the night that the Canadiens came into Boston and beat the Bruins 4-3 in one of the most entertaining games all year. Much of the entertainment came off of the ice, though, when Bruins head coach Claude Julien criticized and accused the Habs for diving and embellishing. It was just another chapter in the...

Who Let the Daug(avins) Out?

  This happened. Boston claims Daugavin off Ottawa — Pierre LeBrun (@Real_ESPNLeBrun) March 27, 2013 If you don't remember, Daugavins was this dude: And then after the game David Krejci was all like: “I wouldn’t like it if someone on my team tried that move."
