Habs Vs Bruins

Match Up

Hockey’s greatest rivalry continues Saturday night when the Canadiens (15-5-1) face the Bruins (13-8-0) in Boston. The game is set to start at 7:00 and airs on TVA-Sports and Sportsnet.

This is already the third of four games between the Habs and Bruins this year, and the first in Boston. The Habs have won both their games versus the Bruins already this season by a combined score of 11-5. Max Pacioretty has three goals and two assists already this season against the Bruins, and Brendan Gallagher has two goals and two assists in the series.

What to Watch

P.A. Parenteau had another solid game on Montreal’s top line against the Blues on Thursday, springing Max Pacioretty on a breakaway for the game winning goal. Pacioretty, who turned 26 Thursday night, had a pair of goals bring him up to 10 on the season. He also has nine points in his last seven games.

Although the Bruins are an ailing team, they were able to fend off the equal beat up Blue Jackets Friday night, winning 4-3 on a goal in the seventh round of an otherwise scoreless shootout. Alex Khokhlachev broke the deadlock to grab the extra point for Boston.

But enough about all that, watch Milan Lucic get dropped:

 What’s at Stake

The Canadiens have won both their games this season against the Bruins, but this is also their visit to Boston. The league leading Habs can put a bit more distance on the rest of the league with a win against a hurting Boston squad.

Who’s Out

The Habs are without Michael Bournival (shoulder), they still have just 12 healthy forwards on their roster.

The Bruins are suffering going into Saturday’s game, missing many key pieces. Zdeno Chara (knee), David Krejci (undisclosed), Adam McQuaid (broken thumb) are all out and Brad Marchand (undisclosed) is day to day and did not play Friday night.

What Else

Marc Bergevin completed his second trade of the season prior to Thursday’s game, sending Rene Bourque to the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for defenseman Bryan Allen. Allen, a former teammate of Bergevin, joins the team in Boston and is expected to dress for his first game as a Hab. The 6’5″ defenseman has played 716 NHL games split between the Canucks, Panthers, Hurricanes and Ducks. He has 29 career goals and 135 points.

The Question Mark

With Sergei Gonchar and now Bryan Allen joining the team, how should Habs management use Nathan Beaulieu and Jarred Tinordi this season?

HabsJets

Match Up

The Canadiens (9-4-1) play host to the Jets (8-5-2) Tuesday night at the Bell Centre. The game is set to start at 7:30 and can be seen on RDS and Sportsnet East.

This is the first of two game between the Habs and the Jets, and the only one in Montreal. Last year these teams split their two meetings, with each team winning on the road. Carey Price recorded a 36 save shutout in Winnipeg to help power the Habs to a 3-0 victory in their win last season.

What to Watch

It took a pair of games for Jiri Sekac to displace Rene Bourque in the team’s lineup, so much so that Bourque has been reassigned to Hamilton after clearing waivers on Monday. Sekac had a goal, an assist, four shots, and the game’s First Star on Saturday.

The Jets have been hot recently and Ondrej Pavelec has been the driving force. Pavelec is 6-2-1 in his last nine starts, allowing just 15 goals on 247 shots for a .939 save percentage. Averaging just 1.87 goals per game, the Jets would probably like a bit more offensive production. Bryan Little, Andrew Ladd and Blake Wheeler have done most of the heavy lifting for Winnipeg. Combined the trio has 16 of the team’s 28 goals.

What’s at Stake

The Canadiens need to look over their shoulder as much as they need to look ahead in the Eastern standings. The Bruins and Red Wings are within striking distance behind the Canadiens, while the Lighting are two points ahead.

Who’s Out

Michael Bournival (shoulder) is out for at least the next two weeks but the Canadiens are otherwise healthy going in to Wednesday’s game.

The Jets will likely be without winger Anthony Peluso (upper body) on Tuesday, he’s been out of action since mid-October.

What Else

The Jets come into Tuesday’s action with points in their last 8 games (6-0-2), a streak that helped put them right into the Western conference playoff conversation and ahead of the Chicago Blackhawks to occupy third spot in the Central division. It’s the first time the Jets have a winning record after 15 games since the franchise relocated to Winnipeg.

The Question Mark

What are your thoughts on Rene Bourque’s demotion, has he played his last game with the Habs or even his last in the NHL?
