In the latest sign of all great things coming to an end, the Bruins saw what was a dominant run over the Canadiens come to an end Saturday night in Montreal, as an overtime goal from Kaiden Guhle sealed the deal on a 3-2 win for the Canadiens and snapped the Black and Gold’s 10-game win streak over their century-long rival.
It was Boston’s first loss to the Canadiens since Nov. 5, 2019.
But before Guhle sent the Bell Centre into a frenzy, it was a night that came with its share of frustration, headlined by an opening minute of the third period that saw Montreal’s Nick Suzuki and Brendan Gallagher strike for two goals within a 27-second stretch to give Montreal a 2-1 lead.
“I think the first minute of the third was a microcosm of the first two periods,” Bruins head coach Jim Montgomery said after the loss. “We were lucky to be in the position we were, up 1-0.”
