From Pat Hickey for the Gazette

The new Rene Bourque is making everyone forget the old Rene Bourque.

Bourque was a disappointment after joining the Canadiens at mid-season a year ago, but he continued his solid play Thursday night as he scored the winning goal in overtime to give the Canadiens a 1-0 win over the Florida Panthers.

“It was a nice feeling,” Bourque said. “We had some chances earlier, but it was one of those games where it was hard to get any quality scoring opportunities. The guys played hard and it was good solid defensive effort.”

Bourque said the defensive tone of the game all but assured “it was one of those ugly goals that was going to get the job done” and he was right.

“It was kind of a broken 2-on-1,” said Bourque, who went to the net to redirect a pass from rookie Alex Galchenyuk. “The puck was bouncing all night, the ice was really bad; I was just was trying to come to a stop and let him come to me. I don’t even know whether I hit it out of the air or it was on the ice.”

The rest... just like Maryanne
