QUEBEC CITY -- Michael Ryder and Chuck Kobasew scored as the Boston Bruins beat the Montreal Canadiens 2-1 Sunday night.

Boston rookie goaltender Tuukka Rask stopped 25 of 26 shots.

The Bruins were officially the home team for the game at the Quebec Colisee, even though most fans appeared to support the Canadiens, the once-bitter rivals of the defunct Quebec Nordiques.

Ryder was on a rush when his wrist shot deflected past goaltender Jaroslav Halak 4:12 into the game. Kobasew scored over the sprawled Halak at 13:58 of the second period.

Josh Gorges scored on a power play early in the third period for Montreal. The Canadiens pressured Rask the rest of the game, but couldn't get another shot past the 22-year-old goalie from Finland.
