Canadiens fans give Zdeno Chara standing ovation for 1,500th game

Ben Chiarot scored the victor in the 3rd time period and Tomas Tatar and Paul Byron also scored for the Canadiens (eight-5-two), who have won four of five.

The Montreal Canadiens hosted the Boston Bruins last night.

Jeff Petry recorded two assists, Chiarot added an assist for a two-point night, and goalie Carey Price made 21 saves.

After Artturi Lehkonen forced a turnover, Paul Byron went between Rask's pads to make it 3-1 Canadiens at 17:16 with his first goal of the year.

In the latter stages of the first period, Pastrnak scored a goal just five seconds into a Bruins power play.

The Bruins evened it when Bjork found a rebound and scored his second at 18:13, but Mete scored 42 seconds later for a 4-3 lead.

David Pastrnak, Connor Clifton, Anders Bjork and Sean Kuraly scored for the Bruins (11-2-2), who saw their six-game win streak come to an end.

Boston arrived into the game with one regulation reduction this season, on October 10 in Colorado in opposition to the Avalanche. "They're over there for three minutes". Mete gave Montreal the 4-3 lead 42 seconds later with a shot from the place.Montreal's Claude Julien coached his 1,200th National Hockey League match, even though Bruins captain Zdeno Chara played his one, 500th sport.

On Boston's faceoff win, Krug slipped the puck to Pastrnak at the left circle, where the right wing buried a one-timer six seconds into the man advantage.

Montreal was back again in it two minutes later on. A breakout pass by Brendan Gallagher led to a 2-on-1, with Tatar scoring on a shot off the post.

There are many similarities between these Canadiens and those Canadiens, but there is one massive difference, one that manifested itself in this classic, back-and-forth thrill ride we were treated to against the Bruins. Bell Centre fans gave Chara, who is usually booed in Montreal, a rare ovation for the accomplishment. Lots of history with both teams.

Bruins captain Zdeno Chara played his 1,500th game. He became the third active player to reach the milestone, joining Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau.

NOTES: Ryan Poehling made his season debut with Jesperi Kotkaniemi (groin) on the disabled list.

Montreal started out hot right away by scoring 73 seconds after the puck dropped on the 923rd meeting, including playoff games, between the Original Six clubs.
