Bruins hope for better results with chances while Canadiens seek second straight win in Boston

BOSTON - The Boston Bruins are hoping to have more success with their shots than they did in Game 1 of their playoff series against the Montreal Canadiens.

They scored only three goals on 51 shots at goalie Carey Price and the Canadiens won the opener 4-3 on Thursday night.

On Saturday, Boston will try to gain a split of the first two games at home before the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal series shifts to Montreal.

Bruins coach Claude Julien says his team remains positive and there is no panic.

And Canadiens coach Michel Therrien isn't sounding overconfident against the team that had the best regular-season record. He says the Bruins played a solid game Thursday.

Montreal won on P.K. Subban's second power-play goal of the game at 4:17 of the second overtime.

Quote of the Day

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
