Today we take a look at the Bruins fourth best regular season game of 2013.

Montreal Canadiens vs. Boston Bruins, February 6, 2013

After starting the season off by capturing points in seven out of their eight games to start the season, the Canadiens hosted the Bruins for the first of four meetings between the two historic franchises.

Montreal entered Boston as one the NHL’s hottest teams to start the season and that momentum carried over to the first period, which saw the Habs dominate the B’s 11-4 in shots on goal. After a PK Subban power-play blast from the point put the Canadiens up 1-0 after two, Claude Julien shuffled his forward pairings up and his faith was rewarded in the opening 14 seconds of the third period when Tyler Seguin buried home a backhand with the help of new linemates, David Krejci and Milan Lucic, to tie the game up. A little over 90 seconds later, the trio struck again, on what would be the eventual game-winning-goal on a nifty give-and-go that eventually landed on Krejci’s stick on the goal line to give Boston the 2-1 victory. At the time, the 21-save effort improved Tuukka Rask’s record to 6-1-1 but this marked the only victory against the Canadiens in 2013.

“The coaches said they wanted to give a little spark and see what happens,” Seguin said. “Obviously with the first two shifts we were able to pop in two goals, so it worked out.”

Here are the game highlights:
