MONTREAL (AP) Canadiens coach Claude Julien's first few run-ins with his old team haven't gone well.

David Pastrnak scored twice and set up another goal to help the Boston Bruins beat Montreal 4-1 on Saturday night, their third win in eight days against their former coach.

These were the first three meetings between the Canadiens and Bruins since Boston fired Julien last February. Montreal scooped up the former boss of their longtime rival, but it didn't give him enough in his first showdowns against former players. Boston won last Saturday in a shootout in Montreal, then beat the Canadiens 4-1 at home Wednesday.
