If the Bruins are as undisciplained as they were last Thursday they could be in for a rude surprise.
Why do Habs' fans keep saying this? Do you guys not realize the Bruins didn't really care if they won that game? It was all about blowing off steam against a hated rival before the season ended.
They will not play that way in the playoffs. I can guarantee that if Lucic goes crazy like he did last week, he'll be riding the pine.
Good luck, Habs' fans. As much as I hate your team, I have to respect your tradition.
