The Boston Bruins finished better than the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night, scoring a 4-2 win at TD Garden despite being out-shot 31-21 and going 0-for-5 on the power play. Bruins goaltender Jeremy Swayman stopped 29 of 31 Montreal shots and allowed zero even-strength goals on the night.
Trade deadline addition Tyler Bertuzzi got the proverbial monkey off his back to open the scoring, finally netting his first goal as a Bruin after nine games and 21 shots without one. Fittingly, the goal came as Bertuzzi fired the puck toward the net just to see what happens. He got the bounce he needed.
