The Boston Bruins host the Montreal Canadiens tonight and will try to win their fifth straight...to do so, they'll have to end a 12-game regular season losing streak to the Habs.
Boston (9-3-3) has won seven of their last eight games, thanks in large part to the sensational play of G Tim Thomas, who controversely is not on the All-Star ballot. Thomas boasts a sparkling 1.76 GAA and a .946 save %.
Rumors have Manny Fernandez getting the call in goal tonight, however.
The Canadiens (9-2-2) have outscored Boston 50-22 over their 12-game winning streak. Montreal are fresh off their best-effort of the season, having come away with a 4-0 win on home ice vs. the Senators. That win was fresh off an abysmal weekend which saw the Habs lose 4-3 in penalty shots to Columbus and 6-3 in an embarassing outing in Toronto.
Carey Price recorded his first shutout Tuesday, and will be between the pipes again tonight.
Game time is scheduled for 7 pm, and the game can be seen on RDS (HD) and on the NHL Network.
