Bruins end losing streak

Posted By Graig Woodburn On February 7, 2010 @ 5:50 pm In General | No Comments

Marco Sturm had two goals, Adam McQuaid scored his first NHL goal and Tuukka Rask made 36 saves as the Bruins ended a ten-game losing streak with a 3-0 win in Montreal Sunday. Patrice Bergeron had two assists for the Bruins, who won for the first time since taking a 2-1 shootout win in San Jose on Jan. 14.

After McQuaid gave the Bruins the lead with 2:28 left in the opening period, Sturm pushed the B’s to a 2-0 advantage with just four seconds left in the first. He added an insurance goal midway though the third period. Center David Krejci was injured in the first period and did not return.

Three Stars

1. Tuukka Rask

Never let the Canadiens grab any momentum.

2. Marco Sturm

Scores twice to provide the Bruins a lead they would not relinquish.

3. Marc Savard

Sharp pass to set up McQuaid’s goal while skating with jump all over the ice.

Turning Point

With the clock winding down in the first period Sturm jumps on a rebound of a Zdeno Chara shot whisking it past Jaroslav Halak for a 2-0 Bruins advantage.

Key Play

As the Canadiens picked up their attack in the third period, Sturm beats Halak to put things out of reach.
