Monday night’s game between the Boston Bruins and rival Montreal Canadiens was a heated, heavy-hitting affair, with the Habs ultimately ending the Bruins’ impressive win streak at 12 games thanks to a 2-1 shootout victory. Some aspects of the rivalry continued after the game, however, when Milan Lucic — angered by the location of a first-period hip check by Alexei Emelin — called Emelin a “chicken” for going low. On Tuesday, Emelin’s teammate Daniel Briere was asked about Lucic’s “chicken” comment. Check out the tweets below to read through Briere’s response. #Habs Daniel Briere was asked about #Bruins Milan Lucic's "chicken" comment on Alexei Emelin in French. What follows is my translation— Аrpon Basu (@ArponBasu) March 26, 2014 "You’ve got to give him credit for what he did, and for going to war the way he did against Lucic on several occasions..." - Briere— Аrpon Basu (@ArponBasu) March 26, 2014 "That might not be the word I would use to describe him.” - Briere— Аrpon Basu (@ArponBasu) March 26, 2014 Whether the hit was too low will forever remain up for debate, as no penalty was called and the NHL is not pursuing action against Emelin. There’s no doubt, however, that it added to an extensive history of dislike between the teams that only seems to grow larger every time they play. The teams don’t meet again in the regular season, but would definitely make for a very competitive playoff series.Filed under: Boston Bruins, Montreal Canadiens, NHL, Top Stories, Trevor Cullen
