Notes:

- The Habs have a 25.1% success rate on the power play this season.

- The Bruins are actually favored (-160 moneyline as of last night).

- The Bruins are 0-1-1 vs. the Habs this year.

- Habs leading goal scorer Mike Cammalleri will be out about 6 weeks with a knee injury after he crashed awkwardly into the boards against Ottawa on Saturday.

- The Bruins moved their practice on Wednesday from Ristuccia Arena in Wilmington to Belmont Hill School:

- Game starts at 7:00 on NESN. Public Skate open thread starts at 6:30.

- I have taken my share of shots at Habs fans over the years, so instead of posting an embarrassing video today, I am posting one that shows a Habs fan in a positive way.
