Montreal comes back to beat Bruins 4-2

Boston Bruins @ Montreal Canadiens game recap video, on November 7, 2015.
The Bruins had a 2-1 lead and even won a coach's challenge where a Montreal goal was called back because of goalie interference but Montreal came back to tie it up and later score a power-play goal on a dumb David Krejci penalty to beat the Bruins 4-2. Maybe the only good part of the game for the Bruins was seeing Frank Vatrano score his 1st career NHL goal in his first game tonight.

Quick game summary
In the first period, Bruins Loui Eriksson scored his 5th goal of the season, a power-play goal, making it 1-0 Bruins.

In the second period, Canadiens Tomas Plekanec scored a power-play goal, tying the game 1-1. Later, Bruins Frank Vatrano scored his 1st career NHL goal, making it 2-1 Bruins.

In the third period, Canadiens Lars Eller scored, tying the game 2-2. Later, Canadiens David Desharnais scored a power-play goal, making it 3-2 Canadiens. Late in the game, Canadiens Max Pacioretty scored an empty net goal, making it 4-2 Canadiens. At the end of the game, Montreal's Nathan Beaulieu got a match penalty for butt-ending/or elbowing Bruins Zac Rinaldo in the head. Beaulieu should get suspended for that hit. Watch the cheapshot below.
