Hitting The Links: Hibernating Rivalry Edition

The Canadiens have exactly 24 games left to pull their heads out of you-know-where if they want to make the playoffs. Considering that it probably won't happen, and also considering that it's February 16 - do you realize that it's going to be at LEAST 235 days until the Bruins and Canadiens play again? That's assuming the season starts on October 8, and also assuming that the two teams don't, by some cruel trick of the schedule, have to wait even longer to face each other.

Basically, we have to sit through an entire Red Sox season before we see another Bruins/Habs game. I don't know about you, but that makes me a little sad.

After the jump, Rich Peverley is hurt again, Teemu Selanne is awesome, and blocking shots with your face is a bad idea...
