CANADIENS AND BRUINS RIVALRY

The Bruins were defeated in both the 2002 and the 2004 Stanley Cup Playoffs in the first round by the Canadiens, despite the Bruins being seeded higher, which contributed to the animosity. The first time the Bruins finished first in the Eastern Conference, and the second time, Beantown was second in the East.

Bonne Match Les Boys!!!

Very nice game thread....ωραίος!

Let's hope the PRICE is right in Boston (I'm just too funny!).

I think I read somewhere (TSN??) that Lats won't be playing tomorrow. Grabs is in, which will surely give us more speed. We need to start putting together another string of wins.

Yup I agree, I know the season is young but the Habs have not gone two games without at least getting apoint

Its a fantastic time to get the road trip started off on the right foot. Bruins played an overtime game tonight and will no doubt be fatigued. In the first we have to come out and grind the defense with speedy rushes and when necessary, dump and chase.

I have my doubts that Rask will be the goalie, something tells me Thomas will play because of how good he has been. But you never know.

Boillion in, Lats out and Grabs in. This will solify the backend, although so does Gorges. Lats out and Grabs in instantly adds speed and some more offensive potential to the third line.

Time to be opportunistic and take the 2 points. With the red hot, sizzling and smoking Sentators on Saturday, Toronto on Tuesday before back to back games on Friday and Saturday versus Buffalo and Boston, these points are vital because they will be difficult to get as the early season tough stretch plays out.

Come out strong, stay strong and score, score, score!

Since when is Tuukka Rask supposed to be in net for the Bruins? :blink:

Either way, Lats isn't playing, so I'm sure they'll be more speed down the ice.

Price will get his first taste of the MTL & BOS rivalry, and may this beginning bring him success against the Bruins for a loonngg time to come ;)

GO PRICEE!! GO HABS!!

In just over a month, Price will have experienced the rivalry with Pittsburgh, Ottawa and Boston. Here's hoping he gets to live the Toronto rivalry as well!

I hope the boys dont take this game lightly. This Rask kid will be playing his first NHL game and after his initial bout of nerves he should be out to proove he belongs.Hit him hard and hit him early. No slow start is key IMO tomorrow.

GO HABS GO

It's defiantly going to be an interesting game tomorrow. I put Tuukka Rask as the Bruins projected goalie because I was reading alot on discussion boards(Boston) that they want him in on the ice quick, but of course it's up to Claude. It would be sweet though to see both young goalies playing tomorrow.

Hey, here is a fun stat...so, Boston is known as the 'Big Bad Bruins' right...?

Well, check out these MTL stats;

HITS

4th - Komisarek(53)

13th - Begin(38)

24th - Latendresse(32)

30th - Ryder(31)

32nd - Dandenault(30)

33rd - Kostopoulos(30)

43rd - Bouillon(28)

Boston HITS

8th - Chara(44)

41st - Ward(29)

67th - Lucic(25)

79th - Alberts(23)

GOT MILK?

as much as I'd like to see Price tomorrow nite... everyone knows that Huet is a bonafide Bruin killer. But at the same time I can't see this Tuukrask whatever his name is outdual Price. we should probably take an early goalie interference penalty to shake him up. Hopefully this game will turn into the Michael Ryder show.

i hope the addition of grabs doenst backfire, because all though we add much more speed and creativity etc, we lose size and strength from latendresse, which is needed vs players like chara and ward etc..

Chara is very beatable with speed, and Grabs certainly has that !!!

In fact, I think if you try to match him physically you actually give him the advantage, you are playing into his strengths.

For those of you underestimating Tuuka Rask...he is the goalie the Leafs drafted, and then traded for Raycroft in what may end up being one of the most regrettable trades in recent Leaf history. Rask is highly touted and is not to be taken lightly. The kid is a future Vokoun, he can play.

9 of the next 10 games that the Habs play are against division rivals. Now is the perfect time to start a winning streak - so let's start it tonight with the Bruins! GO HABS GO!

Peace,

Mike

Start of 4 game road trip (Boston, Ottawa, Toronto, Buffalo). We need 6 points from the road trip to put some space between our team and those teams below us. Most important games are against Toronto and Buffalo as these two teams are battling for the same playoff spot. Not as important against Ottawa so long as Ottawa keeps beating Toronto and everyone else trying to get a playoff spot in the East. Montreal should be able to win against the Bruins. They are not a playoff team even though they have played good so far this year.

Price versus Rask. They are considered the two best goalie prospects in the world. Could be interesting match up.

My guess. Montreal wins 5-1

Reasons for the victory. 1) Ryder is going to get 2 goals 2) Kovalev will be great on PP 3) Pleks and Kostitsyn will play great together 4) Price will play a great game 5) Boston has a few important injuries 5) Montreal is a better team then Boston 6) Rask will not play great

Perfectly logical that Huet did not get the start. He just got a shutout. Therefore no media pressure to play Price therefore it is easy to put Price in the lineup. Come back with Huet for Saturday game against the Senators. Then it will get interesting. Depending how Price plays he will get the start against the Leafs. Of course, if Huet gets the victory against Ottawa then he should play against the Leafs, but following logic it would allow Montreal to put PRICE in the most watched game of the week. Montreal can beat the Senators ESPECIALLY because all teams are beatable and at some point they will lose.

But let's get this road trip off with a win!!
