Jarome Iginla's second goal of the game broke a tie and led the Boston Bruins to a 6-3 preseason win over the Montreal Canadiens on Monday night.
Bruins goalie Malcolm Subban earned the win over his brother P.K., a Canadiens defenseman.
Nick Johnson added two goals, and David Krejci and Zach Trotman also scored for Boston. Travis Moen and Max Pacioretty had goals for Montreal. P.K. Subban scored against starting goalie Chad Johnson.
Milan Lucic and Torey Krug both had three assists for Bruins. Boston went 4 for 6 on the power play.
Malcolm Subban entered the game midway through the second period and stopped all 12 shots he faced. Boston outshot Montreal 40-20 overall.
Carey Price allowed three goals on 22 shots.
The Canadiens didn't get a shot on Chad Johnson until after the 12-minute mark, but they scored when they did. Francis Bouillon picked up Louis Lelanc's rebound and banked it in at 12:07.

Ahhh, doesn't it feel great to know that the Bruins beat the Habs last night. Sure, it was preseason, and sure, it didn't really mean much at all, but come on, it's always nice to smoke the Canadiens. Anyway, all premature trash-talking aside (although feel free to chirp any Montreal fans), we did see a couple promising hints during last night's game, including...
The Bruins' Group B won 6-3 in Montreal last night, cashing in on 4 power play goals and a stunning preseason debut from Jarome Iginla.
You can check out Justin's recap of last night's game here. With Group B having such a dominating performance last night, it's time for Group A to step up to the plate. Here is who is in Group A:

Only two spots are open on the Bruins’ third line alongside Chris Kelly, but a handful of hopefuls are making their cases as to why they should be on either side of Kelly when the puck drops in the regular-season opener.
Carl Soderberg, Jordan Caron, Reilly Smith, Matt Fraser, Craig Cunningham, Ryan Spooner and Jared Knight are all competing for the winger positions, The B’s...
Jarome Iginla certainly made his mark Monday night in his first game with the Bruins, scoring twice and meshing nicely with first-liners Milan Lucic and David Krejci. On Tuesday, Loui Eriksson will attempt to do the same.
The team’s other high-profile acquisition will make his Bruins debut against the Capitals, replacing Tyler Seguin, whom the B’s traded to Dallas in exchange...

When the Boston Bruins selected Jordan Caron 25th overall, it was clear that they had high expectations for him. Coming off a 67 point (36 goals, 21 assists) season with Rimouski Ocean of the QMJHL, the Bruins envisioned Caron as an important piece for the future.
Since signing him an entry level deal in March 2010, the...
Montreal, Quebec – After a heartbreaking game 6 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks last June in the Stanley Cup finals, it has been a short but very active off-season for the Boston Bruins as management re-tooled the roster, preparing for what they hope will be another deep run in 2013-2014. With some familiar faces gone, and a few new ones in the mix, there have been a lot of eyes...
Sure. It's only a preseason game, but any time the Bruins beat the Habs, it's a good day. Doesn't matter if it's mostly NHLers or mostly AHLers doing it.
And tonight's win was pretty.
Jarome Iginla had two goals on six shots (the dude's willing to shoot all night and day). Lucic had three assists. Krejci was the slacker of the LIK line with only one...

Three seasons, two Stanley Cup appearances, and one Stanley Cup series win encompasses the Boston Bruins. Is another Stanley Cup appearance brewing this season?
Yes, with multiple returning starters coming back with more playoff –more specifically Stanley Cup – experience under their belts, the Bruins definitely have a shot at the...

Super short recap today 'cause the game wasn't televised in Boston and the online feed we were using didn't start until the second period. From what we saw it was pretty much a snoozefest. But it was Providence Bruins members that pushed Boston to victory.
Justin Florek scored Boston's first goal and then Chris Kelly scored so you know it was a meaningless...
