Pastrnak gets another hat trick, Bruins beat Canadiens 4-1
Boston has won seven of its last eight and took three of four in the season series with rival Montreal. The Bruins outscored the Canadiens 15-3 over the final three meetings. Montreal has lost two straight as it tries to stay in the hunt for the playoffs.
Brandon Sutter had a goal and two assists, and Bo Horvat and Adam Gaudette also scored to help the Canucks win their second straight after a four-game skid (0-3-1). Markstrom was marvelous in recording his second shutout of the season and fifth of his career.
Corey Crawford finished with 17 saves as Chicago lost its season-high fifth straight (0-3-2).
There was an electric atmosphere in the building for the retirement ceremony. The sold-out crowd was on its feet cheering as Henrik Sedin’s No. 33 and Daniel Sedin’s No. 22 were raised to the rafters at Rogers Arena.
