The wait is finally over. Tomorrow night, the Boston Bruins and the Montreal Canadiens will be gearing up for another page in a long and bloody book. Game One will be at the TD Garden, and the Boston Bruins feel they’re rested and ready for the challenge. (Boston Bruins)

The Canadiens are just as prepared as your Black and Gold. Their fans put together a list of their favorite superstitions and the Habs home site put it up. One of them is voodoo. Not kidding here. They actually say they use voodoo. That’s Habs nation for you I suppose. (Montreal Canadiens)

While there is little love between Canadiens and Bruins fans, I guess we can be thankful that even the wingnuts of both fan bases aren’t this crazy. The fans of the Philadelphia Flyers and the New York Rangers decided to have their own little discussion during game six, and it degenerated into a full-on Donnybrook. In this case the five for fighting could be months, and the sin bin could be the real slammer. (Desperately Seeking Stanley)

The team at NESN has compiled a list of the ten ‘biggest villians’ on the Montreal Canadiens. Sure, the crew at NESN are total Bruins homers, but they’re spot on the money in several instances. (NESN)

So, one of the Habs homer sites has chosen to name the Bruins the ‘Emperors of Embellishment’. (Oh, I’m so not kidding.) So Joe Haggerty takes a look at the allegation (libel), discuss their (slanderous) arguments, and reminds the Canadiens that hockey teams that live in glass Bell Centres shouldn’t throw pucks.

Christian Ehrhoff of the Buffalo Sabres has let the organization know that he’s fine with them trading him if that’s what they want to do. Well, that’s good to know Christian. At this point, practically anyone signing to the Sabres is going to want to have an ‘ejection seat’ clause added to their contract. Well, maybe not John Scott (Pro Hockey Talk)
