The Canadiens Return To Boston Having Ceded First Place In the Division With A Loss To The Penguins. The Bruins Can Build On Monday's Shootout Win Against The Leafs To Cement Lead. Bring It On!

Alex Trautwig

<p><b> With a regulation loss to Pittsburgh, Montreal arrives in Boston tonight to face the Division leading Bruins. It doesn't get any better than this!</b></p>

<ul>

<li> The Canadiens are coming! And are bringing "their gutless style of hockey to the Garden Wednesday, served with a fine whine." [<a href="http://www.boston.com/sports/columnists/wilbur/2013/03/bruins_aim_to_m.html">Boston.com</a>]</li>

<li> Lines were still altered slightly in morning skate. [<a href="https://twitter.com/NHLBruins/status/316922733793529856">@NHLBruins^CS</a>]</li>

<li> Both Johnny Boychuk and Matt Bartkowski were on ice as well. [<a href="https://twitter.com/DJ_Bean/status/316920991345430529">@DJ_Bean</a>]</li>

<li> The Bruins didn't skate pregame on Monday or at all on Tuesday, as Claude Julien is concerned about fatigue. Here's a look at what might be expected in tonight's tilt. [<a href="http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=419215">TSN</a>]</li>

<li> The Bruins are "in the driver's seat" in the race for Jarome Iginla. [<a href="http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/jarome-iginla-derby-boston-bruins-driver-seat-trade-133815828--nhl.html">PuckDaddy</a>]</li>

<li> Peter Chiarelli indicated the Morrow deal "opened up the chatter" on the trade lines. [<a href="http://espn.go.com/blog/boston/bruins/post/_/id/11363/rumblings-all-eyes-now-on-bruins-next-move">ESPN</a>]</li>

<li> But the chatter does NOT surround Malcolm Subban, per Peter Chiarelli, who also discussed the Dread Pirate Soderberg on Toucher & Rich. [<a href="http://boston.cbslocal.com/2013/03/27/bruins-chiarelli-on-toucher-rich-im-not-trading-malcolm-subban/">WBZ,CBSLocal</a>]</li>

<li> And if "under the wire" is his M.O., here are more possible (some familiar) Chiarelli targets. [<a href="http://thehockeywriters.com/eight-big-ticket-targets-for-the-boston-bruins-at-the-trade-deadline/">TheHockeyWriters</a>]</li>

<li> Barry Pederson of NESN spoke with Dennis and Callahan about the two players he sees as the best trade choices for the Bruins. [<a href="http://audio.weei.com/a/72485275/nesn-s-barry-pederson-talks-potential-bruins-deals-at-deadline.htm">WEEI</a>]</li>

<li> Brad Boyes, Brad Boyes, what'cha gonna do? What'cha gonna do if the Bruins come for you? [<a href="http://prohockeytalk.nbcsports.com/2013/03/26/trade-bait-brad-boyes/">ProHockeyTalk</a>]</li>

<li> Oh, and the Geoff Ward earpiece toss? He was not the culprit. Guess who came clean? [<a href="http://nesn.com/2013/03/bruins-assistant-geoff-ward-clears-up-earpiece-tossing-controversy-video/">NESN</a>]</li>
