Game Notes:

  • The Habs are behind the Leafs in the standings. If the Bruins win tonight, they stay there. I think that's the most important takeaway here.
  • Peter Budaj is a Bruins killer. So is Thomas Vanek. How does this work? Do they negate each other by being on the same team now? One can only hope.
  • IT'S GODDAMN RIVALRY NIGHT, KIDS
