Thanks. McCreary's a fine ref.....he's had a great career and I'm sure he'll ref a fine game.

I'm interested to see how the Bruins play. They lost 8 of 9 to the Habs, then resorted to goon tactics last game, and won. Will they continue those tactics with Campbell in the crowd? I don't think they can. They'll have to try and skate with the Habs....

Habs stay disciplined and rely on their speed and transition game, they can win.

The most anticipated game of the year for me.

Go Habs Go!!

Fights are for meatheads. Fights are a foul, fighting results in a penalty. It's like if I said: "Spearing is a part of hockey."

Go watch pro wrestling...

Best game in hockey, Bruins vs Habs, gonna be watching this one with 2 of my Habs buddies so it should as always be entertaining.

I bet this one will be a goaltending battle, 3-2 or 2-1, I doubt it will be a high scoring affair like the last one.

Here's to a good game guys, gotta love the hatred towards the other fan base (in a good way) but the games are so exciting.

Anyone else find Julien's comments whiney? Kinda like when Mike Richards said his bit on Subban?

We all complain that JM is "emotionless" and wish he'd speak up....I'm glad he doesn't.
Just shut up and play hockey Julien.

Anyone thinking we are going to see a brawlfest again should think again. Not gonna happen.

We didn't go out and get those type of players to address that. We will play our speed and skill game, the Bruins may try somethings to get us goaded into the fisty cuffs, but we won't bite as it is best for us to get PP opportunities to make it hurt more on scoreboard.

Its whiny, but its also smart. By making his comments in french, he's pretty much keeping his comments in the Montreal press and away from his team. Stirring the pot without distracting his team.

Julien is just using his ''Bruins Gimmick'' not to get canned again, with the lineup he has, he has no excuse for a 1st round exit.

And Smurf, don't give him that much credit, it was in English lol

I just find it sad that he has to do it in the first place.

His team is a "contender". Their play should speak for itself, the coach shouldn't have to divert attention.

Fighting between 2 willing combatants is STILL a part of hockey. What should not be a part of hockey is instigating an altercation and turtling when you should man up and drop the gloves. Without fighting the NHL would turn into a league filled with cheap shot artists pulling their shenanigans with no fear of retribution. Fighting keeps players honest. What isn't honest is diving trying to draw penalties...that's soccer.

If anyone is doubting how big this game is going to be, 7 pages and over 160 posts later and the game is only tomorrow.

I predict that White is going straight for Campbell.

I predict White won't even play.

If he does, he better not go after anyone unless he is needed. He's a good fighter for his age and Bruins fans will probably go "lol wtf, the habs actually have players like that?" But he'd probably lose to Campbell.

White and Mara will probably be out of the lineup.

As the home team, I think montreal will be able to play to their style which is speed and up tempo.

I hope the habs dont fall into the trap of trying to show how tough they are. This is my biggest concern.

As long as montreal pushes the pace, they should be fine. Its a recipe that has proved to work well against boston for a long time.

If it's the case, Jacques Martin is a big shame

Pyatt is useless and White can fight Campbell anyday of the week.

I love playing Thomas. We always light him up. His reactions after the goals are priceless.

Still though, it's not a good comparison. Yeah, Boston tried to get the physical game going and Detroit didn't bite, but our game was way different. Our goalie was cross-checked. Pyatt got a beating with a piece of a player's equipment. Boston was going to do what they did whether the Habs agreed or not. Here's hoping the refs keep this one sane.
In fairness, i think boston added Rich Peverley and Chris Kelly as a direct result of the back to back losses to Detroit to increase team speed. Since the additions boston has seemed to be a much faster team. As for tommorrow i can see the game going either way. It may get ugly, it may not who knows. nathan Horton has been playing with a mean streak as of late (even one punching a pretty tough kid in Peckham last week) and he seems to have a thing going with Subban. I think that is the key mathup tommorrow. If these two go at each other again all game, it may get chippy.

anyways, good luck.

You guys can take the division. We don't want to choke in the first round, game 7 at home.

I'd play him and Mara. Sit Weber and Pyatt out.

White still has a decent amount of speed to play our game of speed.

White may be able to beat Campbell. Campbell is not a great fighter. On the Boston

fighting depthchart ( if such a thing exists) I would say Thornton,Chara,Lucic,McQuaid

and Horton are all ahead of Campbell.
