NOTES: The Montreal Canadiens are on a roll lately, winning 4 in a row and 7 of their last 8. Their last victory came off a last minute goal by Sergei Kostitsyn against Washington. The Habs will be in tough against Boston though, as the Bruins are on top of the East since November and Montreal has only won 1 of the 3 meetings this year after winning all 8 last year. Jaroslav Halak will get his 6th straight start tonight in replacement of Carey Price, he has gone 4-1 in his first 5 starts.
The Boston Bruins are on a tear since November and have shown no indications they will slow down. They won 12 of their last 14 games and youngsters like David Krejci and Phil Kessel have been playing like stars. The last time the Bruins hosted the Canadiens was back in November and gave the team coached by Guy Carbonneau a lesson by winning 6-1. It should be a great battle between the two teams as they have the two best win% in the whole Eastern Conference. Tim Thomas will get the nod in goal for Boston, he's won 17 of his 24 starts this season and will represent the Bruins at the ASG later this month.

The game i've been waiting for ahhhhhhhhhh, it will feel good. I want a complete destruction of the Bruins by the Habs, something like 8-1, and humiliation of their player going for the moral victory during the third! So things can go back to like they were, them being our *****es.
