|This one speaks for itself.|
We'll start off in Boston. The Bruins destroyed the Canadiens tonight, beating them by a final score of 7-0 inside the TD Garden to bring the season series to 4-2 in favor of Montreal. Both Zdeno Chara and David Krejci had three assists, and Nathan Horton scored twice during the rout, and Tim Thomas made 24 saves for his eighth shutout of the season. Carey Price made 28 saves on 33 shots for the loss; he was pulled with 16 minutes left. The win pulls the Bruins within four points of the Capitals for second place in the Eastern Conference, and Boston has a game in hand.
In New York, the game was much closer, as the Senators beat the Rangers 2-1 in a shootout to snap the Blueshirts' five-game winning streak. After falling behind the second period 1-0 on a goal from Ryan Shannon, Brandon Prust tied the game early in the third, and Erik Karlsson scored the shootout winner in the sixth round to lift the visitors. The Rangers got a point, though, which brought them within two of the Canadiens for sixth. Both teams have played 75 games. The Caps take on the Senators Friday night.
