The Montreal Canadiens beat the Boston Bruins in more than one way Thursday night. On the ice, the Habs won 2-1. Off the ice, Montreal jumped over the Bruins to first place in the Atlantic Division. Tomas Plekanec and Max Pacioretty’s goals in the second period were all it took, leaving Carey Price to carry the team the rest of the way. He made 32 saves, including 16 in the third.

“This is a huge win for us as a group,” said defenceman PK Subban. “You have to expect to win, if you expect to lose you’re a loser.”

In the 719th regular season meeting between these two historic rivals, the Bruins were the team that got off to the hot start. They outshot the Habs 10-3 and scored their goal in the first, while pushing the Habs around.
