This is the moment hockey fans have been waiting for since 2011. It’s happened four times in the past seven seasons, and a total of 33 times in history, the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens will once again meet in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
This is a rivalry that never gets old, and has been going on for over 90 years.
Ever since these two teams first meeting (December 8th, 1924), the Montreal Canadiens have always been considered the dominant team. The series record, which Montreal leads with a record of 449-337-103, proves this. In addition to that, the Canadiens have defeated the Bruins in 24 of the 33 playoff series.
The past is the past, however, and the Bruins are currently known for being a more dominant team than the Canadiens. The 2011 series between the two proved this.
Boston Bruins defeat the Montreal Canadiens in 7 games.
This series is almost unpredictable. The Montreal Canadiens’ speed and offensive abilities will be a concern for Boston, however the Bruins physicality and defensive depth has proved to overtake the Habs throughout games. If Brad Marchand can keep his cool, Milan Lucic continues to be the physical offensive presence he always is, and Jarome Iginla continues to be an offensive threat, the Boston Bruins shouldn’t have a huge problem forcing a game 7.
