Bruins pay tribute to Julien before ruining Montreal coach's return

Bruins pay tribute to Julien before ruining Montreal coach's return

Julien pulled Price with the extra skater with 3:31 left, but just 19 seconds later Krejci sealed it with the freebie.

Jakub Jerabek scored his first National Hockey League goal for Montreal, and Carey Price made 28 saves. Ryan Spooner and David Krejci also found the back of the net for the Bruins in the win. Defenceman Jeff Petry hit Pastrnak earlier on the play, but he lost his stick and never got back into position. There were times in this rivalry - as recent as early last season, in fact - when that kind of goal from the Habs would have been an uh-oh moment for the B's.

Cassidy's side regrouped and Pastrnak tied the game with his 18th goal of the campaign at 6:50 of the first before Spooner gave the Bruins the lead for good with his sixth goal just 2:37 into the second. Spooner drove the net and slid what appeared to be a harmless shot into the crease. Marchand helped set up David Pastrnak's game-tying goal in the first period before adding a power play goal at the 3:40 mark of the third frame to give his team a 3-1 lead at the time.

And once that power-play chance sailed out of Boston for the Canadiens, the Bruins went right back to their break-neck speed that simply punished Montreal.

With no Paul Pierce in the building to stop them, the Bruins did the right thing and honored Claude Julien, who was sacked last February, with a video tribute.

Max Pacioretty, Nicolas Deslauriers, Jonathan Drouin and Paul Byron scored for the Habs. Jacob de la Rose, who started the game between Drouin and Galchenyuk, finished the game on the fourth line. Sixty years ago, the Fredericton native became the first back player in the National Hockey League, lining up for the Bruins in a 3-0 win over the Canadiens.

Both teams wore patches with a "60" centred in a circle, the National Hockey League logo on top, "Willie" on one side and "O'Ree" the other with "anniversary" scrolled across the bottom.

O'Ree honoured: Former Bruin Willie O'Ree was honoured before the game and performed the ceremonial faceoff.

Music lovers rejoice: The Bruins announced that 78-year-old anthem singer Rene Rancourt will retire at the end of this season.

"We're trying to do that against everybody, to be honest, but especially against Montreal", Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said after the victory.

Coming up: The Canadiens will have a day off in Washington Thursday before facing the Capitals Friday (7:30 p.m., TSN2, RDS, TSN Radio-690).
