Basu The Canadiens are fighting for their season and the Bruins don’t care

Brad Marchand and the Boston Bruins forced overtime and then won in a shootout in their first game against their former coach - Claude Julien of rival the Montreal Canadiens.

The incident occurred with 1:37 remaining in the second period when Chara fired a 76.5 miles per hour shot from the blue line.

David Krejci stormed back with an incredible effort to knot things up at 3-3 before the end of the second period, and it was in the third that the Black and Gold turned the pressure up on Carey Price, peppering Price for 10 shots at the halfway mark frame.

He was moving and appeared to be speaking to medical staff before he left the ice, to an ovation from the crowd.

It is not the first time this season Spartak have found themselves at the centre of racism claims. "We are a friendly family". Spartak earlier said Dzhikiya would take control of its Twitter feed for the day.

Squared up against Claude Julien's average-at-best club for the first time since he was sacked by the B's back in February 2017, Bruins netminder Tuukka Rask kicked a puck into his own net and put his team in an 0-1 hole at the 3:22 mark of the first period.

Entering play Saturday, Boston was in second place in the Atlantic Division, with Montreal in sixth, now eight points out of a playoff spot with five teams above them in the race in the standings.

"It's different, but this was just another game", said Marchand, who scored in regulation time and got the game-winner in the fourth round of the shootout.

"You never want to see that", said Julien. According to the broadcast Chara's shot was clocked at 123 km/h (76 mph), which is fortunate considering how hard the Bruins captain can fire the puck.

Wind Chill Advisory for Parts of WNY
More active weather is expected next week, especially by late week, as the stronger of two systems moves through the region. Actual temperatures likely won't get higher than 17 this weekend and will drop to four below on Saturday overnight.

"I wanted to make sure he was OK", Chara said. It was his 11th of the season and the 100th of his career. The Canadiens fired Michel Therrien and hired Julien in short order, the second time the franchise brought in Julien after dismissing Therrien.

Galchenyuk put the Canadiens in front again with a power-play wrist shot under the crossbar at 8:51.

Jakub Jerabek swiped at and missed a bouncing puck and Krejci pounced on it and beat Price from close range at 17:42.

Following Saturday's game Montreal returns to action Monday when the New York Islanders visit.
