It isn't too surprising to see the last two moments of the regular season come down to the two most memorable games against the Habs. Both moments were figurative and literal slaps in the faces of the Montreal Canadiens, and nothing beats a bitter rivalry in hockey. This is the regular moment's final round, the winner moves on to face the playoffs winner.
Though Zdeno Chara's hat trick celebration was memorable for fans and a huge accomplishment for the hulking defensemen, it stood no chance against the explosive line brawl against the Canadiens. The goalie fight brought the noise level in the Garden to deafening levels, granted Tim Thomas and Carey Price aren't exactly the best fighters hockey has ever seen.
