Canadiens Vs. Bruins, Game 2: Scoreless Third Period Gives Habs The Win

If the Boston Bruins had some sense of urgency in the third period of Game 2 of their series against the Montreal Canadiens, they certainly didn't show it. The score was 3-1 at the end of the second period, and the third period ended with the same score. Boston didn't give Carey Price a true challenge at all in the third period, and the Habs coasted to a 3-1 win.

The Canadiens now lead the series 2-0 after two games in Boston, and there appears to be no way back for the Bruins. They could very well play better when Zdeno Chara returns, but just as many of their problems stem from a lack of toughness and an inability to get bodies in front of the net. Even with their superstar, Boston look like they will struggle to turn these bad results around in Montreal.
