Bruins beat Canadiens 4-2 in Game 5 and frustrate P.K. Subban
The Bruins had a 3-0 lead early in the second period as Montreal tried to comeback but couldn't do much as Tukka Rask and the Bruins came away with a 4-2 win. The Bruins also managed to frustrate Montreal defenseman P.K. Subban by taking away his space, hitting him every chance they got and even spraying a little water his way to get him off his game which led him to complain to the refs, which isn't new anyways. Game 6 is on Monday in Montreal at 7:30pm ET.
