Habs Game Report: Montreal salvages vital point in shootout loss to Boston

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.

Canadiens coach Claude Julien said after the game that Danault would remain in a hospital overnight and would be re-evaluated Sunday. Marchand and Jake DeBrusk put the Bruins ahead, but the Canadiens grabbed the lead back through Nicolas Deslauriers and Alex Galchenyuk before David Krejci forced overtime with a goal at 17:42 of the third.

Danault was moving and speaking to medical staff before he left the ice, receiving an ovation from the Bell Centre crowd. The players are still anxious about him, but the reports are good so far.

Chara and other players from both teams gathered around Danault while he was down. Marchand lifted the offering past Price for his 18th goal of the season.

"I wanted to make sure he was OK and was responding".

It was Boston's first matchup against Julien, who was sacked by the Bruins back on February 7, 2017. Nicolas Deslauriers pulled Montreal even when he picked off a pass from Chara in the neutral zone and then beat Rask at 5:45 with s flawless shot along the ice on the blocker side.

Specialty items: While Galchenyuk scored a power-play goal, the Canadiens failed to take advantage of their opportunities with the extra man. DeBrusk did not miss, beating Price for his 10th goal of the season.

NOTES: Boston outshot Montreal 29-25 in regulation time and 32-30 overall. So after Saturday, the Bruins will again see the Habs on Wednesday and Saturday, with tilts against the Dallas Stars and New York Islanders mixed in on Monday and Thursday as well.
