Sunday evening provided a night of seconds for the Boston Bruins.
It was the second time this week they faced the Montreal Canadiens. It was the second game in which they sported their dazzling new alternate uniforms. And it was the second straight victory over the Canadiens for Bruce Cassidy and company.
Habs forward Joel Armia opened the scoring just 1:51 in after firing a shot off of Charlie McAvoy’s skate and into the top corner. The Bruins, meanwhile, struggled to find offense during the first 40 minutes.
True to form, however, the resilient Bruins battled back.
