Tale of the tape: Boston Bruins - Montreal Canadiens
Boston vs. Montreal: How do these longtime rivals stack up. Here's the tale of the tape for Wednesday Night's rivalry.

Two of the NHL's fiercest rivals will renew acquaintances Wednesday night when the Boston Bruins pay a visit to Bell Centre to face the Montreal Canadiens (7:30 p.m. ET RDS, TSN, NBCSN).

Not only is it a battle of Original Six teams with a strong dislike for each other, it's also a key game in the Eastern Conference standings. The Bruins lead the Northeast with 13 points, and the Canadiens are just one point behind. The winner of this game will take over the top spot in the division and the conference.

There's a lot of history and animosity with these two teams, and here's a look at some of what's transpired between these storied franchises:

Great players need great players to play with. That's why we'll have a training camp and we'll find who the best two guys are suited to play with Stamkos.
