The Bruins are in the midst of a 15-game point streak which includes two wins over the hated Montreal Canadiens. These two old rivals will meet for the third time in the last seven days so we should expect a physical game with plenty of post-whistle shenanigans.

The Bruins will use the same lineup we saw at the New York Islanders which means defenseman Kevan Miller will remain out.

The Canadiens played last night at beat the Washington Capitals with Antti Niemi in net, so Carey Price will be getting the start tonight.  He has given up six goals on 63 shots against the Bruins this season for a .905 save percentage.

The Bruins have won four straight games against the Habs and are 6-3-0 in their last nine games versus their oldest rival.  They have also won four out of the last five games in Montreal.
