On Sunday night, the Boston Bruins-Montreal Canadiens historic rivalry added another classic game to their storied history.  The Canadiens scored two goals in the third to steal the game from the Bruins.  Before that though, the game was chippy and included two fights.  Milan Lucic and Brandon Prust fought for the third time, but this was the first time with Prust wearing a Canadiens jersey.  Prust was giving up four inches and 25 lbs, but he showed no fear in going after Lucic.  I’ll give Lucic the nod in this tilt, but you have to give Prust a lot of credit for battling hard against a much larger player.

Players Like Brandon Prust, Brendan Gallagher Helping Canadiens to Return to Conference’s Elite

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 Supports Zdeno Chara ’100 Percent,’ Also Thinks Incident Will Help Tyler Seguin

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...

Brad Marchand Continues Evolution Into Bruins’ Most Clutch Goal Scorer

BOSTON — One of the obvious narratives that continues to develop in this Bruins season is the goal-scoring touch that Brad Marchand continues to display. You know that it won’t last forever, but then again, the B’s forward continues to pot big goals. He did that once again Saturday afternoon at TD Garden when he scored with just 2:16 to play in the third period, giving the...

The Bruins knew it was coming all year. After a slower schedule compared to the rest of the league through January and February, the Bruins won’t have two off days in a row until March 28 and 29. Boston will play 17 games in March with 15 of those games coming in the first 27 days of the month. Because of the tough schedule, the Bruins are trying not to get ahead of themselves...

Bruins Have Plenty More Reasons to ‘Hate the Habs’ After Letting Lead Slip Away Against Montreal (Video)

In a game filled with chippy play from start to finish, Brad Marchand appeared...

The Bruins came into Saturday boasting the league’s top penalty kill, but that unit struggled early on against the Lightning, allowing a pair of power-play goals to go into the first intermission down 2-0. Boston regained its composure after the break, though, foiling the Bolts’ final seven man-up opportunities to secure a 3-2 comeback victory. Center Patrice Bergeron provided...

2 Pictures That Sum Up Sunday’s Bruins vs. Canadiens Fight Night

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...
