That’s the next time the Bruins and Canadiens meet on the ice, and after comments made by both sides over the last two days, it’s sure to be a heated affair.
On Monday, members of the Habs responded to claims made by Bruins coach Claude Julien that Montreal skaters commonly embellish penalties to draw calls from the referees.
“I’ve known Claude for a long time and I’ve been coaching teams against him for a long time, too,” Canadiens head coach Michel Therrien told reporters at morning practice. “To me, those comments that he made were ridiculous and I think he was very frustrated to have lost that game. Claude can concentrate on his team and I’ll concentrate on my own.”
Several Bruins players echoed their coach’s sentiments after Montreal’s 3-2 win Sunday night, agreeing with Julien’s assertion that the Canadiens’ embellishment was “an embarrassment” to the game. Habs winger Max Pacioretty fired back the following day, saying that the Bruins we

BOSTON — The Montreal Canadiens haven’t won a Stanley Cup since 1993, which is basically the equivalent of two lifetimes when you’re talking about hockey’s most successful franchises. While they may not be quite ready to end that drought this year, it’s clear that they’re certainly going in the right direction.
It would appear that there is a bit of a change in philosophy...
Claude Julien said Sunday night that he had no problem with Zdeno Chara‘s fight, even if it may have cost the team a win. He stood by those sentiments on Monday as well.
The Bruins coach addressed the media following practice in Wilmington, and he continued to support Chara, who took 17 penalty minutes after fighting Alexei Emelin in the second period of Boston’s 4-3 loss to...
The Bruins’ offensive attack went cold in the final two periods of Tuesday night’s overtime loss to the Capitals, but the B’s lit the lamp on three occasions in the first.
A pair of those goals came off the sticks of the Boston blueliners, with rookie Dougie Hamilton scoring on a rocket from the top of the zone and Zdeno Chara exploiting a seam in the Washington defense to...
You can’t win ‘em all, but you’d like to win as many as you can against a hated rival. The Bruins weren’t able to overcome the absence of Zdeno Chara in the third period of Sunday night’s loss to the Canadiens, allowing a one-goal lead to turn into a deficit while their captain sat in the sin bin.
In a game filled with chippy play from start to finish, Brad Marchand appeared...
A 2-9 start is not what is expected from an Alexander Ovechkin-led squad, but that’s how the Capitals began the 2013 season. The Caps have turned it on of late, though, picking up their fourth win in five games with a 4-3 victory over the Bruins in overtime Tuesday night. The B’s took an early 3-0 lead at the Verizon Center but could not hold on, dropping their second a row...
The Canadiens celebrate after David Desharnais (51) scored the game-winning goal Sunday night in Boston.
With first place on the line, the Canadiens, who were supposed to be struggling through a rebuilding season, came into the Garden and gave the Bruins all they could handle in one of the most physical games the Black and Gold have played this year. With 2011 champs Tomas Kaberle...
A.B. The 2003 ALCS is a distant memory now. The 2010-2011 AFC Divisional Championship still hurts but it wasn’t the Super Bowl. I can finally admit it; I no longer hate the Yankees and Jets as much as I hate the Montreal Canadiens. And while I love watching the Bruins beat The Habs on the scoreboard, there is something almost equally satisfying about a Chara & Lucic pounding...
Montreal celebrates a goal during their victory last night
The Boston Bruins lost 4-3 to Montreal
last night at the Garden and only have themselves to blame.
After the game Coach called out the Canadiens for diving and
embellishing penalties and basically blamed the loss on that. He went on the
talk about the number of power plays that Montreal
has had and how they’re an...
Watch this hit by Washington Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin hit on Boston Bruins forward Chris Kelly. The Bruins score on the ensuing power play with a goal by Bruins rookie defenseman Dougie Hamilton. Even as a Bruins fan, I have to admit that was a bad call against Ovechkin.
