Bruins Clinch Atlantic Division with Win Over Tampa
Boston made it six straight victories with 2-1 triumph on Saturday afternoonby Eric Russo @erusso22 / BostonBruins.com
BOSTON - Jim Montgomery kept the focus away from the most significant achievement of the afternoon. Despite the Bruins clinching the Atlantic Division - the 27th division championship in club history - Boston's bench boss did not mention the latest Black & Gold checkpoint when he addressed the team following a playoff-like, 2-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning at TD Garden on Saturday afternoon.
Bruins Win 55th Game, Second-Most in Team History
Boston hit the mark with a 4-2 victory over the rival Montreal Canadiensby Eric Russo @erusso22 / BostonBruins.com
BOSTON - At this point of the season, with the lead they have in the standings and the relentless grind of the schedule, the Bruins easily could have stumbled into a tailspin as they hit a two-game skid earlier this month.
That kind of approach, however, just isn't in the nature of this Black & Gold club.
Boston has rebounded from that brief malaise with five consecutive victories, including a 4-2 win over the rival Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night at TD Garden behind goals from Tyler Bertuzzi, Jake DeBrusk, David Pastrnak, and David Krejci.
Need to Know: Bruins vs. Canadiens
Boston can clinch Atlantic Division title with win and Toronto lossby Eric Russo @erusso22 / BostonBruins.com
BOSTON - With just three weeks remaining in the regular season, the Montreal Canadiens are making their first - and only - visit to TD Garden on Thursday night. It is a far cry from the days of Jim Montgomery's youth when the Bruins and Habs were doing battle on a regular basis as fierce rivals in the old Adams Division.
"Montreal and the Bruins seemed to play each other every year in the playoffs the whole decade of the '70s," said Montgomery, whose club can clinch the Atlantic Division crown with a win over the Habs and a Toronto loss to Florida in regulation.
"I wish we played them, that team, particularly, more because it's the Black & Gold vs. the Red, White, and Blue - it's tradition of the game for me."

BOSTON - Jim Montgomery wanted to get the Bruins on the same page.
With nearly a minute of 5-on-3 power-play time on the clock and Boston trailing the Senators by a goal, the B's bench boss saw an opportunity to corral his top PP unit and try to take advantage, despite it being only midway through the first period.

BUFFALO - The Bruins closed out their final long road trip of the season and returned home with a 3-2-0 record after a 7-0 drubbing of the Sabres on Sunday afternoon at KeyBank Center.
The two losses came at the beginning of the trip, as Boston fell to the Red Wings and the Blackhawks, but the Black & Gold bounced back with three consecutive victories across a four-day stretch to end the five-city journey with a winning record.
"To battle back, I think that says a lot about our team," said Charlie Coyle. "And you want to try to win every road trip…so to come back with three wins and win the road trip, 3-2, that was a big game."
