B’s Vs Habs: Exhibition Opener
Back in the spring the Montreal Canadiens knocked the top ranked Boston Bruins out of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Will hard feelings carry over to tonight's preseason opener?
The answer may come once it's known who is in the lineup for the game.
Unlike regular season games, the Bruins will practice at Boston Garden this morning, then fly to Montreal for tonight's game. The travel party will be announced after practice.
Milan Lucic is the one Bruin that could draw the ire of Canadien fans. Remember the handshake line after the playoff series? Some Montreal players said he threatened them. Lucic denied that.
Lucic is coming off wrist surgery in the off season and may not make the trip.
The Bruins and Canadiens play their first regular season game on October 16th, at the Bell Centre in Montreal.
