Habs end Bruins win streak in shootout

The Bruins’ season-best winning streak was snapped in a shootout Monday night, as the Canadiens picked up a 2-1 shootout win over the B’s at TD Garden to end Boston’s win streak at 12 games.

Alexander Galchenyuk beat Tuukka Rask in the fifth round for the only scored in the shootout.

The Habs got on the board in the first period when an Alexei Emelin shot went off Chris Kelly‘s stick and past Tuukka Rask for a power play goal. The game remained 1-0 in Montreal’s favor until the third period, when Dougie Hamilton fired a wrist shot from the point that Patrice Bergeron redirected past Peter Budaj. The goal came on Boston’s fourth power play of the third period.

The Bruins will next play Thursday against the Blackhawks in the defending Stanley Cup champions’ first visit back to Boston since winning the Cup at the Garden in June.

WHAT WENT WRONG FOR THE BRUINS

- In a nutshell, too many penalties early on, not all of which needed to happen. Specific dumb ones will be outlined below, but long story short: The Bruins had three power plays in the first two periods to Montreal’s six.

- Johnny Boychuk let P.K. Subban get to him in the second period and it cost the Bruins yet another penalty. After Boychuk hip-checked Subban along the boards, Subban gave Boychuk a little shove to the back of the head, at which Boychuk threw his gloves off and, after Subban started skating away, yanked Subban down to the ice. Boychuk was the only player penalized, as he was given a roughing minor. It was Boston’s sixth minor penalty of the night.

- Standing up for a teammate is nice, but Emelin’s hip-check on Milan Lucic at center ice in the first period was clean. Zdeno Chara didn’t need to go after him, as he did, and it resulted in a Habs power play off a roughing minor for Chara.

- Milan Lucic took a pretty cheap shot at Emelin in the third period, seemingly trying to spear him in the privates from behind.

WHAT WENT RIGHT FOR THE BRUINS

- Kevan Miller basically put himself on the list nobody’s going to want to fight after his first-period bout with Travis Moen. After Dale Weise lost and edge as Miller gave him a very light shove and Weise crashed into the boards, Moen challenged Miller and madness ensued. The fight consisted of three total takedowns, with Miller bringing Moen to the ice twice in an action-packed scrap.

After the fight, Moen had to be helped off the ice by teammates and did not return to the game, while Miller could be seen icing his knuckles in the penalty box.

- The officiating wasn’t great, but that went both ways. The call on Rene Bourque for hooking Miller was bogus. The third-period holding call on Douglas Murray looked legit, though Murray nearly lost his mind on officials at the blow of the whistle. Later in the third, Brendan Gallagher was giving a so-so holding call after he caught up to a Gregory Campbell breakaway.

All in all, the Bruins had four power plays in the third period, with Bergeron’s tally coming on the final one.
