BOSTON — After 20 minutes, the Canadiens have taken a 2-0 lead over the Bruins in Game 2. Michael Cammalleri and Mathieu Darche scored the Habs goals early in the period.
- The Bruins couldn’t have asked for a worse start to the period. After hearing that Zdeno Chara would not be in the lineup tonight, the Habs got off to a quick 1-0 lead with Cammalleri’s goal 43 seconds in. Darche scored his goal just six seconds into Montreal’s first power play at 2:20.
- Carey Price stopped 15 first period shots, but has given up a few rebounds. However, the B’s have been a bit slower than the Habs in getting to those loose rebounds. The B’s still need to get some traffic in front of the net.
- Meanwhile, Tim Thomas has looked incredibly shaky and doesn’t seem composed at all. Will fans be asking for Tuukka Rask to step in soon?
- The one thing that the Bruins are doing pretty well is throwing their weight around. In fact we’ve even see David Krejci, who guaranteed a victory yesterday at practice, get a little physical with PK Subban after a whistle.
- The Bruins will have 1:28 of power play time carried over into the second period after Hal Gill got called for elbowing near the end of the period. They are currently 0-for-1 with the man-advantage, while the Habs are 1-for-2.
