Bís, Canadiens play with top spot at stake tonight
It will seem like old times tonight at the Garden, when the Bruins and Canadiens clash in what so far will be the game of the year for both ancient rivals.
The Bruinsí 3-2 win over Tampa Bay yesterday, followed by Montrealís 7-6 overtime loss to Pittsburgh last night, placed the Original Six pair even atop the Northeast Division with 30 points. The Bís have won six straight, while Montreal is now 7-0-3 in its previous 10 games.
