Everything you need to know from the Bruins’ 4-0 win over the Canadiens in quickie form, with BSJ insight and analysis:



B’s open strong, don’t let up

Let’s not get it twisted, Boston put together one of its most complete efforts of the season on Monday — an impressive outing from a club on the second leg of a back-to-back stretch and in the midst of a two-game losing skid.

Still, a horrific outing from the Habs made things pretty easy for the B’s on Monday night.

Even though they only entered the first intermission with a one-goal advantage, the Bruins easily could have potted another two or three tallies had it not been Carey Price in net.

Sloppy with the puck for most of the night, the Habs were knocked for 14 giveaways in the opening stanza. The Bruins during that same stretch? Just one.

Montreal continued to shoot itself in the foot all night — including a brutal stretch of turnovers and miscues that led to David Krejci’s sixth goal of the season 46 seconds into the third — but let’s give credit to the Bruins.

At the end of regulation, Boston held the edge in attempts, shots for, scoring chances (28-11) and high-danger chances (14-5). Dominance.
