(Sports Network) - The Boston Bruins try to get back into a series against one of their old foes tonight when they welcome the Montreal Canadiens to the TD Banknorth Garden.
Boston lost its final five meetings with Montreal last season and has dropped seven of the last eight clashes overall.
In the present the Bruins have lost four of their last five matches. On Saturday they dropped a 6-2 tilt to red-hot Buffalo, as Chris Drury scored twice to lift the Sabres.
Wade Brookbank and Phil Kessel scored for the Bruins, while Hannu Toivonen stopped 13-of-17 shots before being replaced in the second period. Tim Thomas made 11 saves in relief of Toivonen.
Boston, which currently sits last in the Northeast Division, plays the third portion of a six-game homestand tonight and will host Ottawa on Saturday.
