Alex Galchenyuk, Max Pacioretty and Nicolas Desauriers scored for Montreal, and Carey Price had 29 stops. "We did a good job and look forward to the next one".

The Canadiens fired Michel Therrien and hired Julien in short order, the second time the franchise brought in Julien after dismissing Therrien.

But for those looking for their first complete look at the local hockey team, you'll be happy to learn that the B's won't find themselves matched up against anybody 'cept the Canadiens when these teams meet again next Wednesday in Boston.

The Canadiens had plenty of motivation Saturday night at Belle Centre, playing their rival Bruins, desperately needing points in the standings, and their head coach's 10-year history with Boston.

Danault was moving and appeared to be speaking to medical staff before being wheeled off the ice. "The plan is to keep him in hospital and re-evaluate him (on Sunday)".


"I was hoping that he was not hurt", said Chara. "I felt bad obviously that he got hit".

"You know there's a rivalry that exists and that's twice now I've switched sides of that rivalry so I guess I could say I'm a little used to it but it's always special when you face your old team". Danault went down with 1:37 left in the second period, and the teams were sent to the locker room after he left the ice.

Through 42 games this season entering Saturday night, Danault had registered seven goals and 15 assists for 22 points.

It was as bad an omen as the Bruins, with rust a very real possibility after almost a full week between games thanks to their bye week, could probably get in enemy territory.

Marchand was left alone in front on a power play to take a feed from Patrice Bergeron and score his 18th of the season at 17:11. Deslauriers picked up a loose puck at the Boston blue line and beat Tuukka Rask with a low shot from the slot at 5:45.
