Canadiens hope for more sparks against Bruins

Boston (36-8-6) at Montreal (27-15-6), 2:00 p.m. EST

MONTREAL (Ticker) -- The Montreal Canadiens look to build off

their latest win when they host the Boston Bruins in a battle of

"Original Six" rivals on Sunday.

After suffering through a four-game losing streak, the Canadiens

earned some relief from their struggles by posting a 4-3 victory

over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday.

Still recovering from an ankle injury that kept him sidelined

for eight contests, Carey Price stopped 23 shots after having

allowed five goals apiece in consecutive outings.

Montreal is 12-1-1 at home against Boston since October 18,

2005.

Meanwhile, Boston is coming off a 1-0 victory over the New York

Rangers on Saturday that saw rookie Tuukka Rask make 35 saves

for his first career shutout.

The 21-year-old started in order to give starter Tim Thomas a

rest while fellow netminder Manny Fernandez continues to recover

from an injury.

Rask was supported by Marc Savard's tally as the Bruins won for

the third time in four games and improved to 29-5-5 against East

foes.
