Brad Marchand scored the winning goal in the fourth round of a shootout, and the Boston Bruins continued their roll with a 4-3 win over the host Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night.

Chara understandably was left shaken by the incident and was the first player to have words with Danault as he was taken off the ice.

He was moving and appeared to be speaking to medical staff before he left the ice, to an ovation from the crowd.

The game was halted for intermission after Danault was injured, and the extra 1:37 was added to the start of the third period.

The injury occurred late in the second period of the Bruins and Canadiens game, as a Chara blast from the point collided with Danault in the middle of Montreal's zone.

"You never want to see that", Julien said. According to the broadcast Chara's shot was clocked at 123 km/h (76 mph), which is fortunate considering how hard the Bruins captain can fire the puck. When the Bruins (finally) looked competitive against the Capitals despite the shootout loss, they were going up against another massive Celtic comeback, this one against the Rockets.

"I wanted to make sure he was OK", Chara said. The Canadiens fired Michel Therrien and hired Julien in short order, the second time the franchise brought in Julien after dismissing Therrien. Mete's assist came in his first National Hockey League game in more than a month.

All even after one: Max Pacioretty gave the Canadiens a 1-0 lead when he scored at 3:22 of the first period on the rebound of a shot from the blueline by rookie defenceman Victor Mete, who was making his first appearance since helping Canada win the gold medal at the world junior championships.

DeBrusk was sent in alone by Charlie McAvoy to beat Price with a high shot 2:55 into the second. Deslauriers picked up a loose puck at the Boston blue line and beat Tuukka Rask with a low shot from the slot at 5:45.

However, David Krejci tied the game 3-3 at 17:42 in the middle frame. So after Saturday, the Bruins will again see the Habs on Wednesday and Saturday, with tilts against the Dallas Stars and New York Islanders mixed in on Monday and Thursday as well.
