The Bruins led the Canadiens 3-2 heading into the third period, but couldn’t hold on and fell 4-3.
Alexei Emelin cross-checked Tyler Seguin at center ice, sending the Bruins forward into a heap on the ice. No penalty was called, so captain Zdeno Chara took it upon himself to punish Emelin. Chara ended up getting called for an instigator penalty, which calls for a two-minute minor, five-minute major and 10-minute misconduct penalty.
Gresh and Sean McAdam opened Monday’s show talking about the Bruins loss to Montreal. The guys debated whether Chara did the right thing by sticking up for Seguin after he was cross-checked. Claude Julien gave some great quotes after the game.
