- So uh...today is a new day. Last night's game was "one of the worst," said Chris Kelly,"that's the only thing we did as a team, we all played poorly." Boston simply did not make chances and did not defend. I'm hoping they were just focused on Montreal, the real rivals. They have a chance to prove themselves against the Habs and (maybe) justify last night's behavior. If Boston can pull off a win tonight, the glory of a victory against the Habs outweighs the embarrassment of last night. On to the next one.
- Just when jerseys were clean of Canadien stench, here we are. It's round two-of-four in the self-proclaimed real rivalry night.
- Boston's last appearance in the Bell Centre featured a 6-4 loss after a solid first two periods and an unfortunately classic Bruins-Habs third period. The game last night sucked. Redemption is in the air, and Boston is pretty damn good at that.
- Carey Price is having an unreal season. He won his last two starts, stopping 59 of 60 shots. His save percentage is .918. It always seems like an uphill battle against the Habs. Once again, Bruins are facing them on the second game in a back-to-back, the game's at a laser pointer-filled Bell Centre, and key players are hurt. There's nothing better than an uphill win. Let's do this.
A wonderful example of classy Habs fans
