Good point.. When the Habs lose we are very critical of Hab players for the loss with a bit of ref blaming thrown in it at times. With Bruin fans though it's like when they lose it was either because the other team was diving or embellishing and because the refs screwed us over and never because their team got outplayed.

Now I'm not saying they're all like that but the majority around HF have that attitude it seems.
