Don’t pretend the Bruins and Canadiens don’t know what’s on the line Sunday night. These two teams know that the winner of this one takes over sole possession of first place in the Eastern Conference.
How else would you explain the frantic fighting and wild goal-scoring that came in the early parts of the game? What’s that, you say? A historic rivalry renewed thanks to some questionable hits and some emotions running hot? Well, that’s a fair explanation too.
NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is buckling up for a wild finish for this one. See why in the above video.
