Bergeron moves up on Bruins points list

RECOMMENDED READING


MONTREAL — Loui Eriksson and Landon Ferraro scored third-period goals 42 seconds apart and Patrice Bergeron added a milestone score to help the Bruins rally for a 3-1 victory Wednesday night to end a seven-game regular-season skid against the Canadiens.

Bergeron's third-period goal pushed him past Milt Schmidt for 11th on the Bruins' career list with 576 points.

That score capped a three-goal rally by Boston. Eriksson tied the score at 1 with his 11th goal 7:53 into the final period, and Ferraro scored on a wrist shot 42 seconds later.

Paul Byron scored for Montreal 8:49 into the first, and the Canadiens lost their season-high third straight game.

Tuukka Rask stopped 32 shots to help Boston win for the second time in five games since ending a five-game win streak.

Montreal repeatedly tested Rask in the first two periods, outshooting Boston 26-14 after 40 minutes.

Mike Condon stopped 20 shots for the Canadiens.

Boston hadn't beaten Montreal since March 12, 2014.
