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

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
