What is red, white, French Canadian and is just the worst? It’s the Montreal Canadiens. I despise them, with their stupid “Ole, ole, ole, ole,” chants, and their scarfs, and just everything about them really.
It’s hard to believe that we’re already in December, and the Bruins and Canadiens haven’t squared off yet. That changes tonight. The teams are separated by one point for the lead in the Atlantic division, with the Bruins currently in first.
The Canadiens have really turned things around as of late, going 8-1-1 in their last 10 games. The Bruins will look to take advantage of a Canadiens team that played last night. In what promises to be a physical game, I’m looking for the B’s to play the body, get the puck in deep, and hammer the Canadien D-men, especially P.K. Subban.
I can’t wait for Chara to get booed every time he touches the puck. Look for Lucic and Brandon Prust, who’ve fought a few times before, to potentially drop the mitts. With all that said, I am more than jacked up for this rivalry to renew once agin, and I’m hoping we see a little bit of this tonight…
