It's time for the fourth and final regular season game against the Montreal Canadians. Not only is it a division rivalry game but its one of the most important games of the season as the Bruins and Canadians are neck and neck for first place in the North East Division. The Canadians are in first with 53 points and the Bruins are right behind them with 52 points. A win for the Bruins moves them to first in the North East Division. A loss would put the Canadians 3 points ahead with only 11 games left after this one. The Bruins enter the game with new fire power though in Jaromir Jagr. Jagr scored the only goal on Thursday night against the Devils in the Bruins 1-0 win. With the goal Jagr became the Bruins leading goal scorer with 15 on the season.

Seguin did alright for his first game at center sin...
