Habs Take On Bruins, Travis Moen, Subban And Price To Sochi? And More...

Good Morning Addicts!

Tomas Plekanec will likely return to the Habs line up tonight
aginst the Bruins.
 The rivalry continues as the Montreal Canadiens will face off against the Boston Bruins tonight for the fourth and final time this season. The Bruins took the first game in due to the stellar play of goaltender Tuuka Rask and the Habs followed with two of their own wins against their rivals.

Each game has been decided by one goal and the home team has yet to win on home ice. Tonight's contest is at the Bell Centre.

Michael Ryder, who won the Stanley Cup with Boston in 2010 is coming off a three point night and continues his point per game pace since re-joining the Habs earning 16 points in 15 tilts. Raphael Diaz and Rene Bourque are each inching closer to their return to the line-up but will both miss tonights game as they are recovering from concussions. Tomas Plekanec missed Thursday nights game against the Jets and his status for tonight is unknown. He was however on the ice for the morning skate and so he should be good to go.

Patrice Bergeron of the Bruins is also out with a concussion and Chris Kelly is doubtful as he recovers from a fractured tibia. Jaromir Jagr will tak part in his first game against the Habs as a Bruin and is more than likely going to be booed every time he touches the puck. When asked about the Habs/Bruins rivalry Jagr responded by saying " I know something happened when Zee (Zdeno Chara) hit that guy from Montreal, and since then things have turned around". Many Canadiens fans were angered by Jagr referring to Pacioretty as "that guy" especially because of the severity of the hit and will no doubt let Jagr know every time he's on the ice.

Should be a great game tonight. The rivalry is so intense and each game brings its own drama. Living in enemy territory when the Bruins play our beloved Habs they perk up more and act like it is the start of the playoffs. They fear us no matter where we are in the standings. To me its just another game on the schedule but when the game itself is being played I am on the edge of my seat and jumping around in joy for each Habs goal more intently that a regular game because i want to beat them so badly. I watch every game thanks for Center Ice but when we lost to the Flyers I was disappointed but said we need to lose once in a while we so dont lose focus and know we have to work hard every night. The Habs were flat that night and it happens once in a while but against the Bruins its unacceptable and a lose like the other night would sting. Also make my monday morning unpleasant because literally a 100 people coming to tease me and tell me I know nothing about hockey!!!!

I have seen that match. Montreal Canadiens has played excellent. They have won that match by 1-2 goals. Tomas Plekanec played also well.
