Montreal Not Up To Speed…by Momma Gouche

 Though Montreal put up a good effort on Wednesday night, they were not up to the speed that the Boston Bruins were able to maintain. The Canadiens did not seem to have the legs for it. John Boychuk scored for the Bruins at 3:31 and Mark Recchi added another at 5:33. Yannik Weber scored on a power play at 9:49 and Montreal came out of the period down by one. When Tomas Plekanec scored a short-handed goal at 5:50 of the second it looked like the Canadiens might be able to hold their own. Chris Kelly scored for Boston  at 9:44 of the third, but PK Subban put in a great shot at 18:03, to tie the score at 3. Nathan Horton put the cap on the game in overtime at 5:43 and the Canadiens were history in the series. I don’t think Montreal had recuperated enough from … back to back … games to have the extra wind to go the distance. The Canadiens got the only two power play goals of the game … but it was not enough.
