NHL: Boston Bruins at Montreal Canadiens
David Krejci scores the first of two overtime goals...
Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports

Take a breather boys, “Rivalry Night” calls you to Pittsburgh tomorrow, where puck drop is 7:30PM on NBCSN.

  • The REAL rivalry night was last evening in Montreal, where the Bruins rang the Centre Bell. David Pastrnak ended up in the net, Torey Krug laid out Andrew Shaw and then fought Brendan Gallagher, and well, it was classic Canadiens V. Bruins. The Boston Globe
  • It appears Krug will not face discipline for the hit. The Score
  • Kevan Miller clocked Alexi Emelin, who slunk quietly away. Streamable
  • It was as close as the score indicated, and two notable hits in the first period set the tone. Jack Edwards nearly lost his mind over one Tuukka Rask save. (with video) Sportsnet
  • All that line shuffling still only led to two goals, but two was enough- and those were not from the usual suspects. WEEI
  • #MontrealTypical. There are just some questionable things that only seem to happen at the Centre Bell. Review a few of the on-ice calls. Fox Sports
  • Tuukka Rask belied whispers that the Habs have his number in earning the win. He’s in the mix for the Vezina Trophy. The Boston Globe
  • Take five... observations from the game. Let the hate flow through you- it has been a while since a Bruins/Habs game was worth its billing. WEEI
  • It isn’t that Rask is bad against the Habs, it is that he is comparatively worse at TD Garden against the Habs. Bonus link: Have a look at the hit laid on Rask by Torrey Mitchell. WEEI
  • A one-goal lead against the Habs is just torture. Oh, and congratulations to the birthday boy! Bruins Daily
  • Meanwhile, in Providence, Zane McIntyre is rounding into form. Has it really been six years that he has been in the Bruins’ system? Catch up with his and other Bruins youngsters’ progress here. Scouting Post

  • Taxes, drugs, and social media are on the syllabus of an NHLPA program meant to keep youngsters drawing NHL paychecks out of trouble. The Globe And Mail
  • Speaking from experience, the Blue Jackets have a few tips for the new NHL expansion kids on the block, the Vegas Whatevers. Jackets Cannon
  • Firefighters come when you call... and sometimes that call is to take the net for an ECHL hockey team. Have you got room for another backup goaltender story? Good4Utah
