Rookie winger Peter Cehlarik, playing in only his second National Hockey League game, handed out two assists, and defensemen Adam McQuaid and Zdeno Chara (short-handed), David Krejci and Frank Vatrano scored goals for the Bruins.

The 51-year-old Cassidy was with the team's AHL club in Providence for nine seasons before becoming an assistant with Boston this season.

Boston has scored 14 goals in the last three games.

The Bruins jumped ahead 1-0 midway into the first when rookie Peter Cehlarik set up McQuaid for a one-timer from the left circle that beat Price on the stick side.

Chara was full of emotion after the goal, as evidenced by the celebration. The captain took a pass from Ryan Spooner and made a nifty move down the slot before beating Price with a wrist shot at 5:08 of the second period to boost the lead to 2-0.

Krejci's goal came on the power play, giving Boston 20 power-play goals in the past 18 games.

Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask recorded the 36th shutout of his career tonight.

Head coach Michel Therrien announced on Sunday that Brendan Gallagher will be back in the lineup to face the Bruins. McQuaid played his 400th career game.

Sakic was spotted speaking with Bruins GM Don Sweeney for most of the second intermission. The Canadiens are 2-4-1 thus far during the stretch after falling 4-2 against visiting St. Louis on Saturday despite allowing just 22 shots.

ABOUT THE BRUINS (28-23-6): Pastrnak's surge solidified his hold of second place on the team in scoring with 47 points - 10 behind Brad Marchand, who was kept off the scoresheet Saturday but has registered 13 over his last eight contests.
