At the end of the first period at the TD Garden, the Boston Bruins (8-3-1) and Montreal Canadiens (9-5-1) are all tied up at 1-1.
The NHL’s worst power play slipped one past the league’s best penalty-kill on the first shot while on the first man-advantage of the night. Defenseman P.K. Subban scored his first career NHL goal — a slapper past Bruins’ netminder Tuukka Rask to put the Habs on the board first.
A wide-open Zdeno Chara lit the lamp for the Bruins — a nice pass from Milan Lucic — past Montreal’s goaltender Carey Price to tie it up for the good guys.
- Milan Lucic has 3-3-6 in six of his last seven games
- Patrice Bergeron has 2-5-7 over the same span
Boston:1 Chara (4) from Lucic (6), Bergeron (7)
Canadiens: 1 Subban (1), from Markov (2) and Cammalleri (7)
