Another Rival Match-Up: Boston Hosts Montreal

Big talk out of Boston is health issues: Good and bad but mostly bad, with Bergeron still out but on the bright side David Backes makes a return after suffering an upper body injury he revived back on November 2nd. Backes is excited to return to the line up but with his return, Jack Studnicka was dropped back down to Providence to make the room necessary. The Boston Bruins (18-3-5) host the Montreal Candiens (11-9-6) in another rival match-up.

Coming off a Thanksgiving match-up against the New York Rangers and a huge overtime win with a goal by David Krejci keeps the Bruins on track with a spectacular winning streak. Boston Bruins hope to keep that trend going, but to do so they will have to play just as they did against Montreal last Tuesday night. They went to win that game 8-1!
