Game Preview and a few links as Habs prepare for Bruins

The Montreal Canadiens will have a big four point game ahead of them, as they face the Boston Bruins in the battle for first place in the Northeast Division. The two teams are separated by just two points, with the Bruins holding a game in hand.

Montreal has won four straight in Beantown, and won nine of the last 12 meetings there. Tim Thomas, who as regained his Vezina form this season, is 0-2-2 with a 3.44 GAA in his last four starts against. Boston put Marc Savard on LTI and Patrice Bergeron took a puck off the chin at Tuesday's practice, and was taken to hospital.

Carey Price will get the start for the Habs, and is 3-0 against Boston this season, with a .941SvPct.

James Wisniewski is expected to return to the lineup, which should help the Canadiens struggling power play.

Jacques Martin played with his lines at practice, before the team took a flight to Boston.

Forwards:

Max Pacioretty - Tomas Plekanec - Brian Gionta | Andrei Kostitsyn - Scott Gomez - Lars Eller | Benoit Pouliot - Jeff Halpern - Travis Moen | Tom Pyatt - David Desharnais - Mathieu Darche

Defence Pairings:
