The Boston Bruins are getting right back in the swing of things after their twelve game win streak was broken by the refs, er Montreal Canadiens last night. The Bruins know they’re responsible for the loss, especially when the Bruins lose their control with a Canadiens team that knows how to cheap shot when the refs aren’t watching. (Boston Bruins)

Sure, we’re all a little disappointed in the loss. Thankfully, most of the Bruins fans kept it classy and only had to remind the Canadiens fans about where they stood in the overall standings. Sadly, some Toronto Maple Leafs fans(clearly outraged after the team’s fifth straight loss) decided to make their attacks a little too personal. They chose to direct their anger at the wife of Leafs’ goaltender James Reimer. Needless to say, Reimer found the whole scenario “disappointing”. (CTV)

Bruins defenseman Kevan Miller was more concerned after the game for the Habs he pummeled then the loss. He expressed concern after sending two members of the Canadiens to the dressing room in the first period. Dale Weise was taken out by a hit that was later to be ruled a cross-check by the refs(as he has faced no supplementary discipline, the NHL knows it was a clean hit (Because in Boston, we don’t call 9-1-1 when one of our players gets hit clean.). Then he had to deal with a surly Travis Moen who was quickly pummeled to the ice by Miller in a quick and one-sided fight.  (CSNNE)

While the Bruins get a little time off to hang out with their fans and raise money for charity, the Canadiens will be taking on the all around challenged Buffalo Sabres. Perhaps Ville Leino will get his first goal against the Habs. (The Buffalo News)
