The B’s blew a 3-1 lead in the third but were able to eek out the win against their French-Canadien arch-rivals on Wednesday night thanks to Tyler Seguin’s game winner and staunch goal tending from Tim thomas during the shootout. The ultimate highlight of this contest came from former Montreal Canadien Benoit Pouliot. Pouliot got his name trending on twitter with this crazy video game-esque goal ion the 2nd period.
Another hot story from this game was the Montreal fans’ reaction to Zdeno Chara taking a puck to the face. The Canadiens fans applauded uproariously, sparking many questions about their class and integrity. As we know from the Vancouver riots last summer, many of our neighbors to the north take hockey a little too seriously and throw classiness/humanity to the wind.
