When the Bruins head north to Montreal, they know they’re going to have to come with full energy right from the drop of the puck, and that was again the case on Wednesday. During the first 10 minutes especially, the Canadiens brought everything they had against the B’s and goaltender Tuukka Rask in particular. Luckily for Boston their netminder was up to the challenge, putting aside 20 of 21 shots overall. After the game, Andy Brickley, not one to take a night off, stopped by NESN Daily to break down the Bruins’ performance. Check it out in the video above.

The Greatest Bruins Dennis Seidenberg Jersey Ever

There's been many jerseys in the Bruins history that have come and gone and tugged at our heart strings.

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. Three-*******-season of a power play that has looked lost, sloppy and uncoordinated...
