The Boston Bruins’ performance in Game 3 of their second-round series against the Montreal Canadiens was far from their best, but it wasn’t a total loss.
B’s defenseman Torey Krug delivered a great performance, extending his point streak to five games and getting three shots on goal, the most of any Bruins defenseman.
Still, Boston has to change the way they’ve been playing if they hope to win Game 4. For starters, they can’t rely on their ability to play from behind against the relentless Habs on their home ice.

The Boston Bruins aren’t hitting the panic button.
After dropping Game 3 of their second-round playoff series against the Montreal Canadiens 4-2, the Habs took a 2-1 series lead, but the Bruins know there is still plenty of hockey to be played.
“It’s a 2-1 series, and it’s not the end of the world for us,” Claude Julien told reporters, via the Toronto Sun. “We’re not...
One Quebec school would rather see their students not wearing hockey jerseys to school at all than see some students wearing Boston Bruins sweaters.
OK, so that's not entirely the message from an elementary school in St-Leonard, Quebec but it's pretty close. The school had planned for a Montreal Canadiens jersey day for Thursday before calling it off. Why? Because a parent...
The Boston Bruins seem to be having trouble finding their stride early in their second-round playoff games against the Montreal Canadiens, which has caused them to fall behind 2-1 in the series.
But being one game behind isn’t something to worry about quite yet, and Bruins forward Shawn Thornton knows that.
Thornton joined WEEI’s “Dennis & Callahan” on Wednesday and...
The Boston Bruins earned a Game 1 victory in their 2013 second-round Stanley Cup playoff series against the New York Rangers with an overtime goal from Brad Marchand.
Patrice Bergeron entered the attacking zone with speed down the boards and sent a fantastic cross-ice pass to Marchand, who was crashing the net hard. The Bruins winger calmly beat Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist...
The rivalry between the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens is one of the most heated in all of sports. When the two teams meet in the playoffs and emotions run high, though, that goes to another level.
That was the case in the moments following the Habs’ 4-2 win in Game 3 of their second-round Stanley Cup playoffs series when Montreal forward Dale Weise reflected on his second...
The Boston Bruins lost Game 3 of their second-round playoff series to the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday night, but the team isn’t panicking despite being down 2-1 in the series.
The B’s had a chance to win in the third period when Jarome Iginla scored to close the gap to 3-2, but the Habs held on for the victory. A Bruins win Thursday night at the Bell Centre would even the series...
from Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette,
The Bruins have dominated much of this series. They’re outshooting the Habs 114-87; they’ve had 76 additional pucks blocked with 38 having missed the target, compared to the 48 and 30 by Montreal. The Bruins hold a 54-46 per cent edge on faceoffs and they’ve been lethal in the third period, having scored eight of their 10 goals...
9:30 a.m.: The Boston Bruins need to be better — a lot better.
The B’s turned in one of their worst games in a long time on Tuesday. The result was a Game 3 loss to the Montreal Canadiens in their second-round Stanley Cup playoffs series. Boston will get a chance to improve and even the series when they take on the Habs on Thursday night at the Bell Centre in Game 4.
Apparently, the Montreal Canadiens are unhappy with another cup checking incident involving Bruins forward Milan Lucic and Canadiens forward Alexei Emelin.

The Boston Bruins’ third line was buzzing all night long. So it was only fitting that they were the ones who finally found the back of the net in Game 4 on Thursday against the Montreal Canadiens.
Rookie forward Matt Fraser, who was recalled Thursday morning, scored the game-winning goal just 1:19 in overtime to give the Bruins the win and tie their second-round Stanley Cup playoffs...
The Boston Bruins haven’t necessarily been playing their best hockey at the start of their second-round playoff games against the Montreal Canadiens, and the Bruins know as well as anyone that that can’t be the case against the Habs.
“I think we’ve all seen it this series where when time’s running out, and we’re down, you see the team pick it up and get to another gear...
Both the Boston Bruins and Anaheim Ducks have to win tonight in order to avoid playing an elimination game the next time they play in their respective series on Saturday night.
Look for a Bruins win tonight and the Ducks will do the same, but in OT ( I am getting a little brave here since I am on a 6-0 run).
Enjoy the games and as always, feel free to comment on them.
