3rd line or best line? Bourque scores 4th of the playoffs to make it 2-0. Boston fans now curse the name Bourque.

Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

It's 2-0 Habs, but all Glenn Healy seems to want to talk about is how many hits the Bruins have on the Habs' D.

Sooooo that Boston power play was ridiculous. Did anyone's go into cardiac arrest? Are you back? Ok, good let's proceed.

Vanek got demoted to the 4th line, then got promoted to the 2nd line. It's like Where's Waldo? out there. It's a good thing the Habs haven't needed their Boston killer yet.

As a hockey fan who came of  age in the 80s and 90s, there's nothing sweeter than the Bruins fans having to curse the name Bourque. I love it.

Also there's a fan at TD Gardens that is such a Marchand fan that he's wearing a number 17 Val D'Or Foreurs Marchand jersey replete with assistant captaincy.
