Bruins Vs. Canadiens Score Update: Boston Jumps Out To 3-1 Lead

The Boston Bruins broke a 1-1 tie in the second period of their Wednesday night tilt with the Montreal Canadiens. Two goals, including a power play goal from Patrice Bergeron, made it a 3-1 Bruins lead after two periods of play at the Bell Center in Montreal.

Mathieu Darche tied the game for the Habs with a shorthanded goal early in the period. Less than five minutes later, the Bruins answered with a Benoit Pouliot goal, his ninth of the season, assisted by Chris Kelly and Rich Peverly.

At the 14:33 mark, the Bruins snapped their power play drought as Bergeron scored his 19th goal of the season. He was assisted by Zdeno Chara and Tyler Seguin.

The Canadiens did finally muster more shots on goal, after just five in the first period, but not by much. The Habs put the puck on net six times. Boston was firmly in attack mode, adding 13 shots for a total of 25.
