Ex-Bruin Michael Ryder scored what proved to be the game-winning goal in the second period, and for the fourth time this season the Hab’s and B’s played a game decided by one goal, with the Canadiens winning this one 2-1 Saturday night.


Montreal (25-8-5, 55pts) has beaten Boston in three of their four meetings this season. The Hab’s now hold a three point lead over Boston (29-9-4, 52pts) for first in the Northeast Division standings.

“I think every time we play this team it’s the most important game of the season up until this point,” Canadiens defenseman Josh Gorges said. “We’ve had a couple of good ones against these guys. I think tonight we played a full 60 though and I think that was the most impressive.”

Canadiens’ goaltender Carey Price had 26 saves, as Montreal has now won five of its last six. 

The loss snapped the Bruins’ three game win streak.
