Bergeron moves up on Bruins points list

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.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — It was still a game in the fifth inning when LHP Blake Snell walked the leadoff batter, then allowed a single. One swing by the Cubs' Ian Happ (22 home runs) could put a dent in the Rays' three-run lead.

    Blake Snell allows just two hits in pitching seven scoreless innings.
  3. Remember him? Numbers prove Ben Zobrist is one of greatest Rays of all time

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — The first foray back to the Trop by the best manager the Rays have had obscured the second return visit by arguably the second-best player in franchise history.

    Figures.

    Chicago Cubs second baseman Ben Zobrist (18) grounds into a double play to end the top of the third inning of the game between the Chicago Cubs and the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2017.

    One success story of this lost season is the emergence of LHP Blake Snell as the frontline starter the Rays projected. After a rough start and two demotions, he has been rolling, Wednesday's solid seven innings making him 4-0, 2.57 in his past eight starts.
