MONTREAL – Here are the probable lineups for tonight’s game between the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens.
Riding an eight-game winning streak, the Bruins’ last loss was at the Bell Centre when they dropped the second half of a home and home series, 4-2. Since then, Boston has outscored its opponents 42-14 over the course of the streak.
That makes it a daunting task for the Canadiens' inexperienced defensive unit, still missing veterans Hal Gill (infection), Jaroslav Spacek (upper body), Andrei Markov (knee) and Chris Campoli (hamstring).
