Noteable Noteables:

  • After last night’s thrilling trio of Game 7’s, the Stanley Cup Playoffs won’t give fans a night to come up for air, as round 2 begins tonight. I couldn’t think of a better way to kick the next round off with a showdown between the NHLs oldest rivals, the Montreal Canadiens and the Boston Bruins. This is the 34th meeting between the two teams in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, and the first time outside of the first round since 1992.
  • The Montreal Canadiens may have swept the Tampa Bay Lightning in the first round, but there are concerns about their inability to get things going on the power play. The Canadiens went 2-13 on the man advantage in their series with Tampa Bay. They will have their work cut out for them, as Boston was 18 for 20 on the kill in their series with the Detroit Red Wings. [NHL.com]
  • The Canadiens defeated the Bruins three times during the regular season, however Detroit also had a winning record against the Bruins and we saw that meant little in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Either way, expect a hard fought battle between these two teams who have not been shy about expressing their hatred for each other.
