Canadiens catch fire just as Bruins arrive in town
Montreal stands just 1 point behind the Bruins in the Northeast Division, which sets an early-season showdown for first place Wednesday night at the Bell Centre.

“You’ve got to remember, last year they ran into a lot of injuries,” said Bruins coach Claude Julien, citing Andrei Markov and Max Pacioretty. “They had a lot of key guys injured, so they were never able to get their second wind.

“Once you derail, it’s hard to get back on track. They certainly weren’t as bad as the standings showed.”


Game 9: Bruins at Canadiens preview
MONTREAL – Good morning from the Bell Centre, where the Bruins will face off against the Canadiens for the first time this season.
Montreal is off to a hot start. The Canadiens are 6-2-0 overall and 5-1-0 at home.

Brad Marchand practiced Tuesday after missing practice on Monday. Marchand was injured in the second period of Saturday’s 1-0 win over Toronto. For now, we’ll assume Marchand will play tonight.


B’s wary of Montreal .
Well, you didn’t think the Montreal Canadiens would wallow in the NHL gutter for too long, did you?

After a season marred by injuries, questionable personnel decisions, Quebec politics and, ultimately, a playoff-free spring, the Canadiens performed a deep cleansing of themselves. General manager Pierre Gauthier, who last year had taken on the bloated contract of defenseman Tomas Kaberle (most recently a healthy scratch) and yanked forward Michael Cammalleri out of a game against the Bruins at the Garden for shipment to Calgary in a trade with the Flames, was axed and Marc Bergevin was hired.


Ryan Spooner in team’s immediate future
As insurance, 21-year-old forward Ryan Spooner was called up from Providence of the AHL on an emergency basis. Spooner, the 45th overall pick in the 2010 draft, got the word late Monday afternoon that he was headed to the NHL.

“I’m excited to be a part it,” Spooner said yesterday morning before flying out to Montreal. “If I do get to play, I’m just going to try my best and try to help the team.”


Nilan documentary showcases hockey's fight game .
But in the opening scene to the documentary, "The Last Gladiators," Nilan stretched out his hands, then makes a pair of fists and showed part of the sacrifices he's made for earning that nickname. The knuckle on his right pinky finger is ground to about nothing. The one was on his index finger was shattered and is now gone, nothing now but a soft patch of skin.

"I feel it days, you know? It's part of paying the price," he said in the opening scene. "I can still use them."


Boston Bruins visit Montreal Canadiens with first place on the line
“You’ve got to acknowledge the fact that they’re probably a lot better than people had given them credit for,” Bruins coach Claude Julien said Tuesday morning at TD Garden, before the team flew to Montreal for an afternoon practice at the Bell Centre.

“They give us good games all the time and I think that’s the fun part about it. We go there and we’re excited about playing that team.”


Ryan Spooner may be next Bruin to make NHL
It went very well for Dougie Hamilton on Jan. 19. Jamie Tardif enjoyed a similarly positive experience this past Saturday night.

Tonight might be Ryan Spooner’s turn.

Spooner, the fast, first-year pro drafted by the Bruins in 2010 (second round, No. 45 overall) was recalled from AHL Providence on an emergency basis Monday night, flew with the Bruins to Montreal on Tuesday morning, practiced at the Bell Centre in the afternoon – and, like Hamilton and Tardif before him, he could make his NHL debut tonight, when the B’s face the Canadiens
