Bruins Notes: Odd Scheduling To Make For Fascinating Week In Canadiens Rivalry

They play again Wednesday in Boston and next Saturday in Montreal.

Boston countered on the power play at 17:40, with Patrice Bergeron taking the puck along the boards and feeding it to Marchand in front of Montreal goalie Carey Price.

Danault out indefinitely: The Canadiens lost the services of centre Phillip Danault, who was knocked unconscious when he was struck in the head by a Zdeno Chara slapshot with 1:37 remaining in the second period. It was the first meeting of the teams since Julien, who guided Boston to the Stanley Cup in 2011, was sacked by the Bruins last February and quickly took the head-coaching job with the Canadiens. The 97 seconds of time was tacked onto the third period.

According to the Associated Press, Danault "was moving and speaking to medical staff before he left the ice" at the Bell Centre in Montreal. The players are still anxious about him, but the reports are good so far.

It's just wonderful that we're constantly talking about this team's gut-it-out, season-altering performances getting overshadowed by the other teams and their obviously bigger games.

Snow in forecast tonight, Sunday
The second round is expected during the evening hours Sunday resulting in an inch or less of snow once again (see map below). Trade winds will return and strengthen through the first half of next week, likely becoming quite strong by midweek.

Threat of nuclear pact changes draws ire of Iran
Trump stopped short for a third time of re-imposing harsh sanctions meant to push Tehran to give up its nuclear weapons research. America's allies see the accord as the best way to thwart Iran's nuclear ambitions and a victory for multilateral diplomacy.

Google Duo Users can Make Calls to Smartphone Without Duo Installed
Speculations doing the rounds that Google Duo , Google's video calling app, works on devices that don't have the app installed. But, most of the Google messaging apps are caught up in a hitch at this stage, pushing few users towards either Allo or Duo .

Chara stayed near Danault as he was down on the ice.

"I wanted to make sure he was OK and was responding".

Conversely, the Bruins, who hold the second spot in the division, are looking to gain ground on the Tampa Bay Lightning, who hold the top spot in the division (and conference), as well as the Metropolitan Division-leading Washington Capitals, who hold a four-point advantage on the Bruins with four more games played.

Montreal captain Max Pacioretty opened the scoring early in the first period when he pounced on a loose puck after Rask stopped Victor Mete's long point shot. It was Galchenyuk's 100th career goal. Paul Byron and Jake DeBrusk matched goals to open the shootout, but there were five misses before Marchand potted the victor. Nicolas Deslauriers pulled Montreal even when he picked off a pass from Chara in the neutral zone and then beat Rask at 5:45 with s ideal shot along the ice on the blocker side.

The Canadiens (18-20-5) are 2-0-1 in their last three games. They are home to the New York Islanders on Monday (7:30 p.m., TSN2, RDS, TSN-690 Radio).
