While the Canadiens, Rangers and Flyers will forever be top rivals of the Black and Gold, teams like the Sabres, Canucks and Penguins are now circled on punch-happy Bruins fans’ calenders.
The Senators, however, are now atop that list. In four games this year, the B’s and Sens have dropped the mitts six times — and that’s not even counting the bevy of big hits and cheap shots thrown in between. If B’s fans didn’t hate Chris Neil before this year, they’re now putting him up in Matt Cooke‘s class — well, almost.
The two squads meet on Tuesday night for their last regular-season game at the TD Garden, and if Joe Corvo has anything to do with it, there’s bound to be fireworks. They’ll square off again in Ottawa on April 5, the second-to-last day of the season.
