From biting, to the devastatingly late hit on Nathan Horton, to Roberto Luongo calling out Tim Thomas despite being a few games removed from allowing eight goals in under 60 minutes, the Canucks are public enemy No. 1 in New England and beyond.
Just how bad to Bruins fans dislike the Vancouver club? Do they dare compare them to another Canadian team, the Montreal Canadiens?
It's tough to make such a comparison, as the B's not only have decades of violent history (to put it nicely) with the Habs, but they also play them at least six times per season.
But these Canucks — often times referred to as "Montreal West" this series — are the diving, embellishing, whining cheap-shot artists that B's fans only thought existed in Quebec. Additionally, the 'Nucks are the only ones keeping the Black and Gold from hoisting Lord Stanley's Cup for the first time since 1972, while the Canadiens are already weeks into their offseason. It's kind of tough to be angry at a group of guys doing nothing more than whittling down their handicaps by the day.
