Chara, who possesses one of the hardest shots in the league, blasted one from the blue line, hitting Danault, who was standing at the top of the faceoff circle, on the right side of his head off his helmet.

Danault left the ice on stretcher and was taken to hospital, where the team said in a statement he was conscious and moving. They play again Wednesday in Boston and next Saturday in Montreal.

Danault was moving and speaking to medical staff before he left the ice, receiving an ovation from the Bell Centre crowd.

The Bruins have played far better hockey this season than the Canadiens have - a change of pace from how most of the past few seasons have gone - and their next two matchups will be key for both teams.

"I wanted to make sure he was OK and was responding". "So I was glad that he was doing OK".

Wenger Insists On Sanchez Stay, Hopes Wilshere Is Fit For Bournemouth Clash
There have been suggestions Wenger could walk away at the end of the season due to the club's difficulties on the pitch. French side Paris Saint-Germain have also been linked with the Chile forward, but Sanchez's preference is to join City.

Alex Galchenyuk, Max Pacioretty and Nicolas Deslauriers scored for Montreal, and Carey Price had 29 stops.

The injury occurred late in the second period of the Bruins and Canadiens game, as a Chara blast from the point collided with Danault in the middle of Montreal's zone. When the Bruins (finally) looked competitive against the Capitals despite the shootout loss, they were going up against another massive Celtic comeback, this one against the Rockets. It was Galchenyuk's 100th career goal. The Canadiens fired Michel Therrien and hired Julien in short order, the second time the franchise brought in Julien after dismissing Therrien.

Victor Mete, in his first game back after helping Canada win world junior championship gold, picked up an assist 3:22 into the game when the rebound of his point shot was tucked inside the post by Pacioretty. The Canadiens regained the lead when Galchenyuk scored a power-play goal at 8:51. It was his 11th goal of the season.

The Canadiens (18-20-5) are 2-0-1 in their last three games. Jakub Jerabek swiped at and missed a bouncing puck and Krejci pounced on it and beat Price from close range.

Following Saturday's game Montreal returns to action Monday when the New York Islanders visit.
