Bruins Continue To Bash The Habs

from Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette,

There’s been a great deal of poor winning going on in Boston since Wednesday night, and that’s a shame given the high road that the Bruins and their extended family could have chosen to drive into the Eastern Conference semifinals.

The Canadiens-Bruins quarterfinal should have been filed proudly by Boston as the organization’s ninth playoff win in 33 lifetime meetings with Montreal, and the end of a wretched string of losses in seven-game series.

Bruins players could have buried the playoff hatchet to speak nicely of the opponent with whom they’d just shaken hands.

Evening Line

“I have respect for the Montreal Canadiens team and the way they played that series and the way that they battled, but to be completely honest, I don’t have respect for actions like that.

“That’s a travesty to the game. That’s not the way the way the game is supposed to be played. When I saw that happen in the first period, when he threw himself back on Campbell, it can be infuriating.

“If anything, it seems the refs let him get away with more, which I’m very surprised at. He’s making the refs look not good on a regular basis. He has got enough talent, and he’s a good enough player that there’s no need for stuff like that.”

-Tim Thomas, goaltender for the Boston Bruins on Montreal defenseman P.K. Subban.  More at the Toronto Sun.

Bruins Slay Their Dragon

from Bruce Arthur of the National Post,

Ghosts. Ghosts in the hallways, ghosts on the ice. They say there were spirits that haunted the old Boston Garden, which used to sit right next door; they said the ghosts roamed about, whispering here and there, helping when they could. The old Garden is a parking lot now, next to its successor. But doesn’t mean there couldn’t be ghosts in the new building, as well.

For the Boston Bruins, they created their own haunting. They had lost consecutive Game 7s at home, the last of which came after blowing a 3-0 series lead, and a 3-0 lead at the end. And after blowing leads of 2-0 and 3-2 to the Montreal Canadiens — hard-to-kill men, to be sure — in Game 7 of their first-round series Wednesday, you could almost hear the rattling of chains.

Montreal Wants To Return To Boston One More Time

from Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette,

There will be an Airbus A320 charter jet fuelled and ready to fly from Trudeau airport to Logan International late Tuesday night. Montreal Canadiens players, coaches and management will have arrived at the Bell Centre late in the afternoon with suitcases packed for an overnight trip, a motorcoach parked at the arena awaiting its flight-bound passengers.

Just one thing must be accomplished for a team to buckle in: defeat the Boston Bruins.

“No one’s going to leave anything behind,” Canadiens centre Scott Gomez was saying after the club’s Monday practice, speaking not of luggage but of effort.

Game 6 of the Canadiens-Bruins NHL Eastern Conference quarter-final at the Bell will either send this remarkable playoff series back to Boston for a seventh and deciding game on Wednesday, or it will be a brick-wall finish to the Canadiens’ season, the victorious Bruins moving on to the conference semifinals with a 4-2 series win.
