It's spring - and with the new season it's time to break out the bleu, blanc et rouge and the black and gold. For the 34th time, the Montreal Canadiens and Boston Bruins meet in postseason play as the age-old rivals face off tonight in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference second round series at TD Garden.
While Montreal has won 24 series between both clubs, the Bruins have won seven of the last 11, including the last two.
"I knew that part of playing for the Montreal Canadiens is there were rivalries and a lot of history," said Montreal blueliner P.K. Subban this week. "At the end of the day, we'll probably talk about it for the next three or four days but once the puck drops, it doesn't matter what rivalry or history there is.
"It's just a matter of winning. Then, after the game, we'll talk abut history and whatever."
