Amidst the Patriots game tonight and Sidney Crosby's return, this game is probably going to get a little lost in the shuffle, which is sad because this has all the makings of an epic game. First of all...It's a Bruins/Canadiens match up. Secondly, the last two times these two teams faced off, it wasn't pretty...in fact, it sucked. But now the Bs are riding a 8 game win streak, Montreal just knocked the Rangers off an admirable 7 win streak, so you know both teams will be fired up.
What better time for a little payback for October?
The Bruins are finally in a position in the standings where they aren't totally screwed. Right now, they're sitting at 7th place in the East, and a win tonight will propel them into either 2nd or 3rd, depending on how the Florida game goes (yes, Florida is currently 3rd, try not to faint).
Naturally, there will be a lot animosity in the Bell Centre tonight seeing as how the mere mention of the Boston Bruins is enough to make Montreal's lady parts burn with the fire of a thousand hells, but we got just two words for them..
