RECAP: Bruins nab late goal to tie, but fall to Canadiens in OT

RECAP: Bruins nab late goal to tie, but fall to Canadiens in OT

The late goal doesn’t gloss over some long lapses in puck control in the third period. First Period A high-energy start settled down a few minutes in.

John Moore is out.— Fluto Shinzawa (@FlutoShinzawa) January 12, 2019 That’s the big move in the lineup, and will likely be the beginning of a platoon of sorts between Moore and Matt Grzelcyk.
