After Rene Bourque opened the scoring -- No. 18 on the year for him, assisted by Alex tanguay and Olli Jokinen -- the game settled into more of a back-and-forth affair.

Mike Cammalleri, making his return to the lineup, was sprung on a semi breakaway, but was denied by Miikka Kiprusoff.

On the next shift, Tanguay had a good chance, but fired just wide of the post. Two minutes later, Bourque was looking for goal No. 2 with a slapper that Price sticked aside. Bourque gained the puck on a turnover by Subban, who was trying to make a long pass but was foiled when his stick shattered.
Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
