i was in 320 in the last row and myself and about 4 other bruins fan shut up a whole row of bruins fan who thought it would be cool to boo the canadian anthem, we told them its disrespectful and they dont like it then stay quiet and turn your back, its still rude but at least its not booing. Kid has the nerve to call us all communist too but eh c'est la vie. Thank you to those Habs fans that made for god conversation and a few good laughs

how many people here have heard american tourists on new years eve in montreal chanting that? i hear it every year on sainte-catherine.

i've been called that too by americans before. funny thing is, when you ask them to explain to you what communism is, they get this dumbfounded look in their face and then resort to calling you a homo or something like that.

exactly! they are ignorant and that is the first thing that pops into their head because at that age if you dont do what everyone else is doing your a homo, but i expect more class tomorrow. its one thing to critique a hockey team and a hockey game it is another thing to degrade someone's government and person....

I haven't read the whole thread, but just want to add that I met a number of pleasant habs fans last night. It almost kills me to write that, but it really was a great evening, and the enemy fans that I interacted with were great.

i can say the exact same thing for the 2 bruins fans i encountered and chugged some beers with on saturday night here in montreal. mind you, they were a little on the older side so they weren't drunken teenage retards.

I wanted to say the same thing about Bruins fans. Great atmosphere at the game, and there's a lot of knowledgeable, loud Bruins fans - a lot of whom are pretty good people.

I love the Boston accent, too. Gah-dens!

I've never understood booing the Canadian anthem at a hockey game, don't these people know that they're watching a Canadian sport.

Same thing with the American anthem being booed in Montreal. I'm Canadian, so it doesn't really rub off on me too much, it's just disrespectful all around. Show class to each other's countries, I just don't get the hate. No reason to boo a national anthem on either side, it's just low brow.

I either don'T get the anthem booing on either side... I mean, where are Komisarek, Higgins and Smolinski from? That's right, USA... and fans are booing it...

Same thing in Boston when I hear the canadian anthem getting booed... Savard must feel very happy about that.

Like it was said many times in this thread, stop the patriotic war and let's play hockey!

Too bad I'm still too young or I would have loved going to Boston for yesterday's game

Someone once defined democracy to me as being absolved of other people's problems, and not being penalized for anyone else's failures or difficulties.
I told them they just defined being an ass****. Nobody who uses the words as weapons knows what democracy or communism actually are.

The funniest thing was seing our ads on the boards!

"Air Canada"
"Jeld-Wen portes et fenêtres"
"CKAC 98,5 FM"
"CBC Sports"

That would never happen in Montreal!

yes they were foam pucks. The Habs fans sitting behind me and my daughter caught it. He gave it to her because he knew it would be a Bruins item and he didn't want it.

Every Hab fan around us (and B's fan) was very classy and we all just loved the game of hockey and talked about the rivalry, hockey, road games, etc. Of course I can't say that was everybody, both ways.

I had posted this on the B's board as well.

The one thing I thought was classless by a B's fan was right before the game, 2 young ladies ( 30's ) had a HABS flag (which they said was autographed by a lot of current and former HABS) and were sitting in 306 row 2 waving their flag. Some idiot B's fan ran up and grabbed the flag and threw it over the balcony.

Classless at it's best.

Thanks to all Habs fans that came down. It made the B's fans really get into the game!

Well I haven't heard of recent fights in any other arena Habs fans have invaded in masses this season (Florida, Buffalo, Toronto). Why would we go around starting fights only in Boston?

In my section atleast, Habs fans showed alot more class than Bruins fans. I didn't hear any anthem getting booed...anyways, the atmosphere was UNREAL
I really enjoyed it even if we lost...

It was nice to watch them win, though.

I'm under no illusions though - there is no way the NHL will allow the B's to win a deciding game in Montreal.

So you guys are good to go.

I blame the Illuminati !!!

They have every right to be here.
I hate when fans of one board are xenophobic towards fans of other teams.

Boston fans have every right to come here & chat.
Just like we have every right to go on their board and chat.

It's really irritating when people can;t handle people who don;t agree with them.
The whole point of Internet Chat Boards is to have discussions.
It's hard to have a good discussion if everybody just blindly agrees with one other.

EXAMPLE :

"Habs rule Bruins suck"
"yup"
"you said it"
"i heard that"

to anyone who was at McGann's last night before the game, let me say thank you for booing me when I walked in the door wearing my Axelsson jersey. to see a Boston bar 100% taken over by Habs fans was almost surreal!

judging from players' and coaches' comments in the papers this morning, fans of both teams were heard and appreciated. I almost had pity for those driving back to Mtl. afterward (almost!).

I've always felt you will run into those types of fans in any building you go to. It is always those types of fans who give the rest a bad name. I have a feeling the majority of those types of fans are the casual fan and not the die hard.

I was lucky enough to be surrounded by a great group of guys when I visited the Bell Centre for the last regular season game between the two teams.

I always expect to get harrased being in another teams building, and I always expect to see other teams fans being harrased in ours. But there is a way of doing it respectfully. That means no booing the anthems, no personal attacks on the individual, just thier team. But most people are stupid. It's about hockey, not about personal beliefs (or the EXPOS as my friend likes to always bring up )

It's great to see the building rocking. Not so great to see so many Hab fans there (from a Bruins point of view). But I think that says more about how far hockey has fallen in this city.

There were a ton of people at Fours as well. It was a pretty surreal experience for Habs fans as well. The chanting and singing before the entering the arena was one of the highlights of the evening.

I almost coughed up my coffee this morning, my younger brother, who was at the game, appears twice in LaPresse's sports section (p. 2 and 5) and once more on Cyberpresse.ca. On the first one he is in a friendly brawl with a bruins fan, on the second one he's alone yelling at a bunch of Bostonians and on the third one (link) he gives the "aaah shut up" look at a guy yelling to his face.

Way to go, bro

It's kinda sad though, me and my brother went to see the Habs in Boston on both ends of the 13-game winning streak

I was at the game last night and the Bruins were PISSED that there were so many Habs fans. First thing I did when I got there was go to a bar in my Habs jersey and the Bruins fans told me "get the frig outta here, you're not wanted". And the 2 secs later the Bruins fans were on their phones with their friends saying:

"dude, you need to get down here. There's Habs fans everywhere."

And later on at the game some Bruins fan told me to go home. And so I told him, "look around! I am home. There's more of my people then there is of your people"!

That got him right pissed and everyone around him was laughing.
