Canadiens host Bruins in Wednesday Night Rivalry

by John Kreiser / NHL.com

The Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens will face off for the final time before the 2016 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic when they meet in the Wednesday Night Rivalry game at Bell Centre (7:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN, SN, RDS).

The next time the Bruins and Canadiens see each other will be Jan. 1, 2016, when they play outdoors at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. More immediately, the Bruins are concerned with finding a way to end a seven-game losing streak against the Canadiens. Boston hasn’t defeated Montreal since winning 4-1 at Bell Centre on March 12, 2014. That streak includes two 4-2 victories by Montreal this season.

After a fast start that carried them to the top of the Atlantic Division, the Canadiens are trying to stay in first place without goaltender Carey Price, who’s sidelined with a lower-body injury that’s likely to keep him out beyond the Winter Classic.
