The Montreal Canadiens had a 3-1 lead midway through the third period yesterday and they proceeded to surrender four unanswered goals to the Bruins in a little less than eight minutes.
Obviously, that’s a tough way to lose, but Montreal was able to take a step back and appreciate that the situation is still in its favor.
“Winners regroup and realize the situation they’re in,” Canadiens goaltender Carey Price said, per NHL.com. “I thought we did an excellent job so far. We came and did what we wanted to do, split these two games (in Boston’s TD Garden). Now we’re going to move forward and take it to them on home ice.”
On top of that, the Canadiens don’t feel like they were outplayed, despite the result.
“After we made it 3-1, I thought we played well after that, but that one goal just kind of turned the momentum,” Thomas Vanek said, who scored twice for Montreal on Saturday.
It will be Montreal’s turn to defend its home turf on Tuesday (7:00 p.m. ET, NBCSN).
