Figured we could use this with the Wings-Bruins thread turning toward Habs-Bruins. Discuss here.

Actually called the divisional finals I think.
Can't wait, gonna be a blood bath.
RW13 being proactive, I like it. I was hoping someone would create a thread.
I think I should stay away from the NHL forums for this series though...
There's no Canadien fans.. I'm sure your fine... I'm a massive fan of the kids in Montreal though. They're my second team, Boston beating Detroit or not. Should be a fun series.
To me, Montreal had the scariest top line to end the year. It's big, which is massive vs Boston. However secondary scoring needs to happen.
Mixed Martial Arts Forum
The key has to be discipline and secondary scoring for both sides. Bruins had a tough time finishing in the last series, so that's something to keep an eye out on.
I really can't wait for this one.
This is going to be tough. 2 teams that could literally not be more different in terms of style. Polar opposites yet could very well be a top 3 rivalry in all of sports. No team I hate more than Montreal, and no team I respect more than Montreal.... This is going to be a fun series.
lol, small kid got tripped by a tuba player
As a fan of Original Six hockey I'm thoroughly looking forward to this. Got the B's, expecting the Habs to push them though, maybe as far as 7.

I honestly am so happy to grow up in New England and be a Bruins fan. Why? Because I, as well as every other fans of the Bruins or Habs, get to be apart of the greatest rivalry in North America. The history and hatred between these two teams is amazing. It is honestly one of the only rivalries left where you can tell that both teams hate (HATE!) eachother, as well as the fans who can take it to a whole nother level. This one should be a great one. I, going off pure homerism, have the Bruins in a gut-wrenching, hair pulling 7 games.
Go Bruins, give this **** team hell! ****. The. Habs.
It's weird how across 3 of the 4 major sports Boston's biggest rivals are the most dominant organization in each of those respective sports histories, despite them being geographically nowhere near each other (with the exception of the Lakers who are right on par with the Celtics but in a larger sense it's those two and then everyone else).
Anyway I feel like a good percentage of Bostonians would rank Yanks/Sox higher on their rivalry scale but I don't live in Boston. My roommate from college did/does though. I know he definitely would, and he's a die-hard of all Boston sports.

The Bruins and Habs, on the other hand, has always been prominent. Whether its regular season, or playoffs, the games always mean something. Any boston sports fan who puts Yanks/Red Sox as the top rivalry in Boston should seriously reconsider b/c that is just not the case anymore. The rivalries in my opinon are:
OneMan's trying to steal Orpik from me
No Habs fans! Pfft! Posted this in the other thread. Hoping for a great series and no injuries either way.
Lucic vs Emelin, Price vs Rask, Gallagher vs Chara, Bergeron vs Pleks, Subban vs Marchand.
Best rivalry in all of hockey.
I hate all of Boston sports teams. Giants and Habs diehard fan here from Montreal.
Will be an interesting series. Couldn't have ended better with the 4 game sweep and Patches getting the monkey off his back with the game winner. Top line will need to produce and Vanek is a known Bruin killer.
I think it comes down to Price vs Rask which means the Habs need lots of traffic in front of the net. One thing that Rask struggles with (as any goalie would) is the quick misdirections or passes across his face (Price too). We need to play quick and get him moving. Can't beat him 1v1
