Bruins lose again

BOSTON (AP) – Michael Cammalleri and Mathieu Darche scored in
the first 2:20 of the game, and Carey Price stopped 34 shots
Saturday night to lead Montreal to a 3-1 victory over the Boston
Bruins and give the Canadiens a 2-0 lead in the first-round playoff
series.

A No. 3 seed in the East after winning the Northeast Division,
the Bruins coughed up home-ice advantage and need a victory in
Montreal on Monday or Thursday just to bring the series back to
Boston for a fifth game.

Boston has never, in 26 tries, won a playoff series after losing
the first two games.

Tim Thomas made 23 saves as the Bruins played without captain
Zdeno Chara, who was scratched minutes before the opening faceoff
because of dehydration.
