Canadiens Fan Throws In The Towel After Thrashing By Bruins
- A Canadiens fan literally threw in the towel as the game ended
- Sometimes, things are just too poetic to be put into words. You simply have to witness them. This is one of those times.
- With time running out during the Bruins’ 8-1 thumping of the Canadiens tonight in Montreal, someone in the crowd decided enough was enough.
- Why yes, that is a white towel slowly fluttering down to the ice.
- No mas.
- Poetry in motion.
- Mercifully for that Canadiens fan, the game did, in fact, end just a few seconds later.
- If only the fan had decided to throw the towel a period or two earlier, he or she could have beaten traffic and gotten a good seat at the bar…
- David Pastrnak scored three goals for the Boston Bruins in their fourth straight win, 8-1 against the Montreal Canadiens at Bell Centre on Tuesday.
- It was Pastrnak’s sixth NHL hat trick, second this season (four goals in 4-2 win against Anaheim Ducks on Oct. 14).
- Jaroslav Halak made 36 saves, and Brad Marchand and Charlie Coyle each had a goal and two assists for Boston (16-3-5), which has an eight-game point streak (5-0-3).
- The Bruins, who complete a two-game road trip at the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday, had 12 players with at least one point and six who had a multipoint game.
- Shea Weber scored for Montreal (11-8-5), whose season-high winless streak reached five games (0-3-2). The Canadiens have allowed 14 goals in their past two games, including a 6-5 loss to the New York Rangers on Saturday, when they blew a 4-0 lead.
“We’ve got to hit the reset button and fight our way out of this because no team’s going to make it easy for us,” defenseman Jeff Petry said. “Everyone’s going to have that mindset, when they’re down, to step on them. And it’s our responsibility to try to figure it out within these walls and find a way to battle it out together.”
