The Montreal Canadiens picked a good time to test their streak against their rivals.
The Boston Bruins may have won on Friday in Columbus, but they'll have to face a white-hot Canadiens team at home less than 24 hours later. It's hard to believe that the meeting between the two clubs on Saturday will already be the third of four games this season.
Montreal has owned the season series so far, with both games they've won coming in Montreal. Both wins were high-octane offensive performances, and the Bruins haven't shown signs recently of shoring up their back end. All signs point to a Canadiens win, but if Boston's win on Friday proved anything it's that the B's are not to be underestimated when the going gets tough. We can't wait to see how this one unfolds on Saturday night at TD Garden.
The Canadiens have won their last four regular season games in Boston, dating back to 2013.
Montreal leads the NHL with 31 points at 15-5-1, including 6-2-1 away from home. The Bruins have won three straight and are 13-8-0, in third place in the Atlantic Division with 26 points. Boston is 8-4-0 at home.
