BOSTON -- The Montreal Canadiens on Friday sounded like a team reeling from a loss, not like one that pulled off a double-overtime Game 1 win in the Eastern Conference Second Round series against the Boston Bruins.

Canadiens coach Michel Therrien and four of his players met with the media at their Boston hotel to discuss what happened in Game 1 on Thursday and what needs to change going into Game 2. From their answers, it seemed clear the Canadiens knew they were fortunate to open this best-of-7 with a win.

"I think we got away with one [Thursday]," forward Thomas Vanek said. "We all know that. We're happy that we won Game 1. I don't think any of us are happy with how we won.


Sharks GM says coaches should stay after collapse

Friday, 05.02.2014 / 5:15 PM / Sharks vs Kings - 2014 SCP First Round

Eric Gilmore - Correspondent

SAN JOSE -- San Jose Sharks general manager Doug Wilson angrily vowed Friday that changes are coming in the wake of a historic collapse in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but he said he'll recommend to owner Hasso Plattner that coach Todd McLellan and his assistants be retained.

The Sharks became the fourth NHL team to lose a best-of-7 series after being up 3-0, falling to the Los Angeles Kings in the Western Conference First Round.

"To our organization and to our fans, this is not a nick or a scratch," Wilson said. "This is an open wound. When the emotions are raw, the emotions should run deep and resonate and live for a long time. We have already started the process of what decisions we're going to make. … There are options. Status quo is not one of them.

"The process has started. It's not too complicated, fairly easy to figure out. Our coaching staff is part of that and … my recommendation is that our coaching staff be part of this going forward."

"I thought we had so many chances we could've scored 10 goals [Thursday]," Bruins center David Krejci said about his line after meetings and off-ice workouts at Ristuccia Arena. "But we didn't. So hopefully we are saving them for next game."

Price, Subban help Canadiens steal Game 1

Friday, 05.02.2014 / 1:19 AM / Bruins vs Canadiens - 2014 SCP Second Round

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor

BOSTON -- The Montreal Canadiens left TD Garden on Thursday after their fifth win in five games played in these Stanley Cup Playoffs knowing they stole one.

They also know it doesn't matter. A victory does not require style points to count.

The Canadiens did not deserve to beat the Boston Bruins 4-3 in double overtime, not after being outshot 51-33 and spending massive stretches of the game hemmed in their zone.

After 10 days of waiting and practicing since their first-round sweep of the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Canadiens were under siege for much of the night but came out victorious in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Second Round Series, stealing the home-ice advantage and perhaps demoralizing the Bruins in one fell swoop.
