NHL Playoffs, Canadiens Vs. Bruins: Carey Price, Montreal Hold Off Boston, 3-1

Carey Price was nearly unbeatable for the second straight game, turning away 34 shots as the Montreal Canadiens coasted to a 3-1 win over the Boston Bruins in Game 2 of their quarterfinal series in the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs on Saturday night at TD Garden.

Montreal, which took a 2-0 lead in the series with the win, was outshot, 35-26, in the loss. The Bruins had four power play opportunities, but couldn't make them all count, while the Habs had three power play chances.

Michael Cammalleri scored the game's first goal for Montreal 43 seconds into the first period and Mathieu Darche added another goal 2:20 into the period to give Montreal a 2-0 lead, which would hold through the end of the first period.

Patrice Bergeron brought the Bruins within one, scoring 7:38 into the second period. However, the Habs were able to answer on Yannick Weber's goal 17:21 into the second period.

Tim Thomas recorded 23 saves for Boston, which travels to Montreal for Game 3 of the series on Monday night.
