on Tuesday continued to lay blame at the skates of the other team for the brawls that marred a wild 8-6 Bruins victory when the teams met almost a month ago.

The Bruins have maintained during the past month that the reason the last game in Boston degenerated into a slugfest was because the Canadiens started it. Montreal's fans and media, on the other hand, have been accusing the Bruins of goon tactics.

Tuesday night's game at the Bell Centre is huge; bigger than any notions of payback or revenge.
