Well, it’s about that time of year again, nothing like ringing in the holidays with some good ol’ fashioned hate. We sit well past the quarter mark of the 2013-14 NHL season, but Thursday night will be the first meeting so far this year between the Bruins and their rivals, the Montreal Canadiens. Read on for the preview.
Boston Bruins vs. Montreal Canadiens
Thursday, December 5th – 7:30pm – Bell Centre, Montreal
TV: NESN, RDS Radio: 98.5 The Sports Hub
It’s become a rarity to see the Boston Bruins not come away with two points when leading after forty minutes of play, but that’s precisely what happened in front of a packed house at TD Garden last night. With captain Zdeno Chara in the box for 17 minutes after responding to an Alexei Emelin cross-check to Tyler Seguin’s rib cage, the Montreal Canadiens scored two goals in the first ten minutes of the third to earn a big victory over the Black and Gold, retaking first place in the Eastern Conference.
Game 19: Boston Bruins vs. Montreal Canadiens
Sunday, March 3rd, 7:30 pm, TD Garden, Boston
TV: NBC Sports Network, RDS Radio: 98.5 The Sports Hub
Fresh off their sixth straight win yesterday over the Lightning, the Bruins have another tough task waiting for them at the Garden tonight as the Montreal Canadiens are in town. Currently tied with Bruins atop the Northeast Division, the Habs are coming off an ugly 7-6 overtime loss last night to the Penguins, but do not have a regulation loss in their last ten games (7-0-3).
