Boston Bruins                                              

The Boston Bruins will welcome the Montreal Canadiens to TD Garden for an NHL game on Thursday. The Boston Bruins won 2-1 in their last game over the Senators. Linus Ullmark made 40 saves, Jake DeBrusk had the go-ahead goal and the NHL-best Boston Bruins continued their pursuit of the league’s record for regular-season victories with a 2-1 win over the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday night.

“I thought he was outstanding and he needed to be,” Boston coach Jim Montgomery said of Ullmark. “Unfortunately we gave up a lot of good looks, a lot of odd-man rushes because of our puck management and he bailed us out like he has all year.” David Krejci added a power-play goal for Boston, which won its fourth straight. Dylan Gambrell scored for the Senators and Mads Sogaard made 33 stops.

“We had a shooters’ mentality for two periods,” Ottawa coach D.J. Smith said. “The third period, they’ve won 54 games now, they’re not going to give you an odd-man rush, they’re not going to give you anything. You’re going to have to earn it.” The Bruins posted their 54th win and with 12 games left are on pace to break the mark of 62, set by the Detroit Red Wings in 1995-96 and matched by the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2018-19.

Montreal Canadiens

The Montreal Canadiens on the other hand won 3-2 against the Lightning in their last game. Kirby Dach and Jonathan Drouin scored in the first period and the Montreal Canadiens beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-2 on Tuesday night. Mike Matheson also scored for the Canadiens, who had lost six of their previous seven — including a 5-3 defeat at Tampa Bay on Saturday. 

Nick Suzuki had two assists and Sam Montembault stopped 31 shots to improve to 14-14-3 on the season. “Sam played tremendous,” Canadiens coach Martin St. Louis said. “I think everybody played well. I can’t think of a guy that wasn’t that good tonight. So when you have everybody on board, we’re hard to play against. “I liked our game. It was fun because we played against the same team as the last game. 

We had a lot of examples and you can really show the aspects to work on and how we want to show up against them and the things that we want to do.” Montembault agreed, adding: “We did a lot of video. Marty did a really good job to make sure we were ready tonight. … It’s fun playing back-to-back against them, you know what they’re going to do so you can focus on yourself.”
