Bruins' 12-game win streak ends as Galchenyuk's shootout goal gives Canadiens 2-1 win

BOSTON - Alex Galchenyuk scored the only shootout goal, and the Montreal Canadiens stopped the Boston Bruins' 12-game winning streak with a 2-1 victory Monday night.(backslash)

The Bruins fell one game short of their longest winning streak since 1970-71 and two shy of the club record set in 1929-30. But their one point from the shootout loss moved them ahead of Western Conference-leading St. Louis for the most in the NHL with 104.

Boston tied it at 1 with just two seconds left on its sixth power play of the game. Dougie Hamilton's slap shot from the centre of the blue line deflected off Patrice Bergeron and past goalie Peter Budaj with 5:26 left in the third period. It was Bergeron's 23rd goal of the season.

Quote of the Day

I don’t know if it was more relief for me that [Stamkos] scored or the power play scored. It was a whole compilation of Alka Seltzer.
