The Boston Bruins won 5-2 against the Montreal Canadiens. Bruins coach Jim Montgomery is proud of his team that showed strength and character. “I thought we played the right way for 60 minutes, the way we want to play,” -Jim Montgomery said, as quoted by NHL. “You’re going to give up scoring chances because you’re playing in the NHL and the other teams are good too”.
Canadiens coach Martin St. Louis believes that his team was not of the same quality as the previous week. Aggressiveness was what made them special in the last match. This time, many things were missing. “We were definitely more aggressive last week, we definitely initiated a lot more things, were more in control,” -Martin St.
Louis said. “I think we forced them last week to be uncomfortable; they forced us tonight to be uncomfortable. They brought heaviness, and you know, they’re a good team collectively, so for us, it’s finding that game that we had against them before and keep striving for that”.
Nick Suzuki was not satisfied with the start of his team. He is aware that they have to do better in the next matches. “I know what we’re capable of each and every night,” Suzuki said. “Recently, it hasn’t been there.
Our start was pretty bad, they got [us] hemmed in our zone a lot. Took too many penalties against a really good team, and it cost us a lot”. Trent Frederic was one of the best individuals as he scored two goals and once again showed how important he is to his team.
“They just scored, so it was kind of not great timing on the penalty,” Frederic said. “Penalty is what it is, and you’re kind of sitting there, frustrated, and every time you’re in the box, you’re thinking you might get a breakaway.
It’s never really happened, but you’re thinking what you’re going to do, and that’s kind of what I was thinking about”.
