Bruins/Habs rivalry

Hi all.

I came across this really nicely-written article on Grantland today about the Habs/Bs rivalry and what it was like to be a Montreal fan living in Boston in the '70s. Here's the link: http://www.grantland.com/story/_/id/...boston-rivalry

A blurb...

Quote:
Across the Montreal dressing room from where Desharnais was chatting in French to a broadcast crew, Brendan Gallagher was practically giggling with every word, and I am not kidding about this. You will not see an athlete happier with his place in the world than the little rookie winger from Edmonton. He had a very good night, rolling around the ice like a bowling ball and racking up assists on both the game-tying and game-winning goals. He was only about two weeks removed from a concussion he sustained against Philadelphia but, on this night, with the game put away, he smiled and he laughed and he bounced there as though he were waiting in line for the greatest thing in the world, just around the corner.

"It's very cool. Just the way the organization treats us, it's incredible to be a part of," Gallagher said. "And the pressure that comes with it is something I enjoy. We see the old guys around. They hang around our rink and come and crack jokes with us. Those guys paved the way for us and it's good to pay respect because most of 'em have about eight or nine Stanley Cups. That's something that wouldn't be too bad."
The kid seems genuinely excited. It's nice to see a rookie not be overawed by it all once in awhile....
