Each time the Bruins and Canadiens have faced off this season, first place has been on the line. Saturday night will be no different, except this game will mark the final meeting between the two teams this year. Until the playoffs, that is.

With both teams battling for a top seed in the Eastern Conference, every game counts a little bit more. That should translate into a little bit more emotion for both sides this time out, knowing that it could be their last chance to get a little breathing room in the playoff race.

NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is excited to see how this one plays out. See more in the above video.
