Canadiens vs Bruins game thread

The eternal rivals meet for the final time this year.

The Habs and Bruins will meet for the final time this year, and Montreal will rely on their back up Peter Budaj to get the job done, as opposed to their starter.

That means that Price will likely face the much weaker Sabres tomorrow.

Jarred Tinordi will be left aside for a second game, as Therrien has decided to play three different #6 d-men tonight, in Francis Bouillon, Douglas Murray and Mike Weaver. Unfortunately Weaver is the only legitimate #6 of the group, and the other two should be slotted into the #7 or #8 spot, but this is Therrien we're talking about, logic need not apply.

The only change up front for the Habs will potentially occur if Lars Eller decides not to play. If that scenario happens expect Michael Bournival to slot onto the fourth line.
