Krejci Penalty Late Costly As Bruins Fall To Canadiens
MONTREAL (AP) – David Desharnais scored on a power play with 1:08 left in regulation to lift the Montreal Canadiens to a 4-2 victory over the Boston Bruins on Saturday night.
Max Pacioretty added an empty-netter 20 seconds later, and Tomas Plekanec and Lars Eller also scored for league-best Montreal, which has points in five straight games (4-0-1). Rookie goalie Mike Condon had 29 saves to improve to 6-0-1.
Loui Eriksson and Frank Vatrano scored for Boston, which has lost six straight against Montreal. Jonas Gustavsson also had 29 saves.
Desharnais was at the right side of the net to fire a rebound of a shot by Alex Galchenyuk into an open side for the game-winner.
