Yep, it’s Rivalry Night, this time with real rivals!
Tonight the Bruins and Habs take on each other for just the second time this season and of this week, with one more slated for Saturday night. Tonight, Claude Julien, or Handsome Ralph, will return to the arena he called home for 10 seasons. There is a planned video tribute that I hope that NBCSNPDQASAP will show during some break in the action. Since they’re playing up this angle, they had better show it, dammit!
Unfortunately, the Bruins announced a retirement today:

It’s obvious what the Bruins need to do: they have to win the Cup and bring it home for Rene.
