THE RUINS STREAK STOPS TONIGHT!!!

THE GOOD, BAD AND UGLY [edit]

FIRST THE BAD

The Bruins might be the toughest opponent around, riding a league-best 12-game winning streak into Monday.
They last lost March 1 against the Capitals and have already clinched an Eastern Conference playoff berth.
Boston has outscored its opponents 46-17 as part of the third-longest win streak in franchise history
.The Bruins have also had strong play from backup goaltender Chad Johnson over their streak.
Tuukka Rask has only allowed 11 goals in his seven victories,
while Johnson has allowed six in his five starts.
Boston has scored more than 40 percent of their 227 goals (92) in the third period this season.
NOW THE GOOD.
Monday’s game will be the fourth and final meeting between the Habs and Bruins this season.
The Canadiens have won two of the three games so far, most recently leaving TD Garden with a 4-1 win on Jan. 30.
Picks & Odds
Mon56%,,,Bos44% :P ( I forget where I found this)
Carey shut them out at Bell Centre on Dec. 5 and in his career against them is 17-8-3 with a 2.50 goals-against average
and .919 save percentage.
The Habs are 5-2 against the Bruins this season and last.
Michael Bournival was recalled following the game in Toronto and made the trip to Boston with the big club.
Fans could see a heated goaltending duel at TD Garden with Tuukka Rask and Carey Price both likely to start between the pipes for their respective teams.
Among all NHL netminders who have played more than 50 games this season, they are ranked first and fifth, respectively, in save percentage with Rask owning a .929 efficiency and Price not far behind at .924.
Toronto lost :D

Who's hot: Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban has 11 points (nine assists) in his past 11 games.
Left wing Max Pacioretty has five points (one goal) in his past five.
Center David Desharnais has six (one goal) in five.
Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask has allowed 11 goals for a 1.55 goals-against average over a personal seven-game winning streak. Defenseman Dougie Hamilton has four assists and a plus-6 rating in his past five games.
Injury report: Canadiens forward Lars Eller (lower body) is day-to-day.
Defenseman Josh Gorges (left-hand surgery) and forward Brandon Prust (upper body) are on injured reserve.
Bruins defensemen Adam McQuaid (strained quadriceps) and Dennis Seidenberg (right-knee surgery) are on IR.
Confirmed line-ups will be announce as they come in.
  • If there's any team to end the Bruins streak... It's Montreal.

Nice GDT Kinot! :D
I'm excited for this one. I have a feeling we're going to be the ones to end their streak. Also Tuukka seems to struggle against the Habs, so that's a plus. Something tells me Vanek is going to get his second hat trick as a Hab tonight, especially since he's getting use to the system and his line mates now. He's a real Bruin killer.

Some way, some how we're going to win this game. I don't know if it's cause of kinot's GDT powers, the animal sacrifices I've made to the hockey gods, or the direction and speed of the wind...but it will happen. Of course, it could also be cause the team plays to their strengths and not to the Bruins and keeps the game their own. I think I feel like I want Boston to lose more than I want the habs to win if that even makes any sense :mellow:

Enjoy the game everyone! I'll be at work and In hope I come home to a favourable result or I may have to delve into voodoo and other means to stop them.......

THE GOOD, BAD AND UGLY [edit]

The part about his wife kind of rubbed me the wrong way. Unless there was some incident that I missed involving the Habs and his wife, it makes me feel like we're stooping to the Bruins' level, which is lacking in class.

With all due respect, Habsology, it's an old joke that many members remember, that goes back 3-4 years. It's an actual picture of an ugly woman. It's in no means implied that Chara's real life wife is actually ugly. From what I understand she is quite an attractive woman. If you like,, I can find the picture of the ugly woman,,, but IMO most members would prefer that I not. :P

GDT powers :o:blink::rolleyes: ,,, I wish beaubie :P . It was proposed to me that I find a ruins doll and stick pins in it,,, but that would mean that I am putting $$ into the ruins bank account, and that would be treasonist (is that a word?). You're right tho,,, I just want them to lose,, every game if possible, just like the laffs.

Per John Lu:

#Habs lines vs #Bruins:

Pacioretty - Desharnais - Vanek

Galchenyuk - Plekanec - Gallagher

Bourque - Brière - Gionta

Moen - Eller - Weise

So Eller's injury is apparently better or not bad enough to keep him out.

It appears Peter Budaj will get the start in net for the Habs, according to TSN's John Lu. Tweet: "@JohnLuTSNMtl: #Habs Budaj is in the starter's net."

I was hoping to see Bourney, but if Eller is good to go,, all the better.

I was expecting Budaj to play tomorrow, not tonight. It's fine though, he does have slightly better numbers against the Bruins and the likelihood of the game going to a shootout is high so he wins in that department. It's good to see that Eller may play tonight, I wasn't expecting that at all.

MURRAY. TINORDI. BOUILLION.

SO MUCH GRIT IT HURTS. THE BRUINS BIG PLAYERS WON'T BE ABLE TO HANDLE IT.

Ignoring that the Bruins' big players are also good at hockey too. It's actually so sad that management thinks Bouillion gives us a better chance to win than Weaver, and that Murray-Subban is anything more than a satirical joke on a forum.

Thanks for the clear-up kinot. I don't think I've ever read a disrespectful post by you, so I had a feeling that there was something I was missing. Now I'm curious about this "ugly wife" thing. Do you have a pic?

On defence, Douglas Murray was paired with P.K. Subban during the morning skate, while Francis Bouillon played with Jarred Tinordi and Andrei Markov was with Alexei Emelin. However, Mike Weaver told reporters after the skate that he would be in the lineup, meaning Tinordi looks to be a healthy scratch.

Hoowee! *gives head a shake* Well, unfortunately that will be etched in my eyes for a while...

Actually I've been on this board since 2006-2007. I know it looks like I have only a few posts, but I had another username ("Habsology") back then. But I usually logged in at work and the profile was attached to my work email (I know - dumb). Eventually I left the company in 2010, but had forgotten my password by then (I had always kept it signed in - I know, dumb again). When I kept requesting to have my password changed, the system always emailed to my old work address. So I just decided to create another profile. Hence "Habsology2".

Would have Liked to see Price Play his second game against Boston tonight!! He's Solid against the bruins but we'll see what happens

Hopefully we don't get blown out like last time Budaj Played against Boston in Montrea,l He won 4-1 in Boston, but lost 4 - 1 In Montreal which is part of the bruins current streak

You know it promises to be great game when there's trash talk beforehand.

When asked about tonight's game vs. Habs, Claude Julien bluntly stated: "Just another sweater."

On the Habs side, both Desharnais and Weise said that they were cheering for the Bruins to extend their streak, so they could snap it tonight...

Should be a good one!
