Kessel and Ryder rip the heart right out of Habs
|04.22.09 at 7:10 pm ET|
17:46: Georges Laraque and Milan Lucic both going off for penalties. Larque picks his up after the whistle while harassing Lucic.
12:27: Left post for Bergeron on a curl and drag move from just outside the left faceoff circle. He had Price beat with his wrist shot.
10:51: Nice play by Yelle who carried the puck into the corner, took the defense with him and then flipped to Shawn Thornton in front. Price stopped Thornton’s shot from in tight, but another strong shift from Boston’s fourth line.
8:02: Kessel in the box for slashing. A case of perfect timing as the puck finds him when he leaves the box at the end of the kill, and he motors in alone and wrists a puck inside the left post past Price. That’s a backbreaker for the Habs.
7:17: Another goal for Michael Ryder against his former team. This one was created by Krejci, who faked a shot at the sideboards and then found Ryder all alone streak to the night by the right post. Quick tape-to-tape pass and another goal for the Bruins. This baby is over.
4:20: Big mock cheer for Price when he makes a save on a dump-in attempt by the Bruins. The Habs fans have officially turned on their own.
00:41.5: Another round of Lucic and Komisarek. Lucic picked the right place and the right time to even a debt. Right in front of the Habs net, Lucic and his tormenter dropped the gloves and the B’s forward knocked him down with a quick right hand to the face.
00:18.3: Saku Koivu hog ties Patrice Bergeron and gets a penalty for holding.
Lots of boos at the end of the second period.
The B’s are leading the Canadiens by a 4-1 score at the end of two full periods during Game 4 at the Bell Centre.
