8 a.m. ET: The Bruins and Canadiens (finally) renew their rivalry on Wednesday night when the B’s head north to take on the Habs for the first time in this shortened season. It’s a bit surprising that we had to wait this long, perhaps, but after eight games, the Bruins tangle with the Canadiens for the first time in 2013.

That start is even more impressive when you consider they’ve done it for the most part without P.K. Subban. The Habs signed the restricted free agent last week to a new two-year deal, and the defenseman is now back in the fold. It’s likely going to be a special teams battle on Wednesday night in Montreal.

Grindin' Gears: Where The Power Play Does Unspeakable Things To Us

  I have had enough of watching this ******* Bruins power play. You know, if this was something new to the season, I'd be able to handle something as vile as the Bruins going on a 5-on-4 and not being able to enter the zone, but we're looking at a deficient power play for the past three season.
