Game Day Thread: Canadiens @Bruins

The Habs are in town to play the Bruins today.

This will be the 4th meeting this season between the Spoked B’s and the Toilet Seats.
In the last three meetings, the results were
A 2-4 loss at home
A 2-3 loss on the road
and a 2-1 Overtime road win

The Bruins have been pretty consistent in scoring 2 goals vs Montreal. It has not always been successful, but at least one win has been achieved so far.
The Bruins come in on a two game win streak since relieving coach Claude Julien, and relying on interim coach Cassidy. The Habs have been struggling of late, having lost their last game, and 5 out of their last six.
But that has not stopped them in the past from playing well enough to pull out a win vs our hometown heroes.

Yesterday’s game vs the Canucks had a few nice highlights, including a rare win in front of backup goaltender Anton Khudobin! Davis Pastrnak continued his scoring ways with his 100th NHL point, and the Millers also each got on the board. The biggest impact on the scoreboard came from Frank Vatrano who tallied a power-play goal and two assists.
The Bruins got to crow about secondary scoring for once! Ans we also got to see some Peter Cehlarik, who had a respectable appearance.
