Did the Boston Bruins finally figure out how to get shots past Carey Price? Game two had an awful lot of puck luck going for the Bruins (to make up for the whistle happy refs I suppose). The Black and Gold were shooting high on Price, and that led to four goals in the Bruins 5-3 win. (CSNNE)

Well, that overall answer was a no. Carey Price has still be amazing in net, and the power and strength of the Bruins is being outmaneuvered by a faster Montreal team. The Bruins made some silly mistakes that led to costly turnovers. The Canadiens put up three goals before Boston got on the board. The Bruins tried to mount another powerful comeback but were stopped by a last second empty net goal. The Canadiens took game three at the Bell Centre,  4-2. (Boston Bruins)

While there are still a lot of Bruins fans that will hate the Canadiens on general appearance alone, they have earned my respect. They played an essentially a clean game in Montreal. No diving, and with the exception for the hit on Thomas Vanek by P.K. Subban, all the hits were beyond reproach. While I am not about to panic here, the Bruins really need to focus on playing their strengths against Montreal and play a tighter game four. (Montreal Canadiens)

All things considered, it could be worse. The St. Louis Blues felt so bad about disappointing their fans after they were eliminated by the Chicago Blackhawks, they took out a full page ad to apologize to them. (CSNChicago)

So, do you think the Montreal Canadiens fans are rough? There are a few people from Montreal that are die-hard Bruins fans. CBC takes a look at a few Habs fans’ thoughts on Bruins fans, and interviews a few of the Bruins faithful living in the heart of the enemy’s camp. (CBC)
