Tale of the Tape: Montreal Canadiens host Boston Bruins on Wednesday Night Rivalry

The Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens will face off for the 724th time in the regular season when they meet at Bell Centre in this week's Wednesday Night Rivalry game (7:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN, RDS, TSN-Habs). They've also played 170 times in 33 series during the Stanley Cup Playoffs, by far the most of any two teams in the NHL.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
