WILMINGTON, Mass. — That the Montreal Canadiens are a bit down on their luck as they come to Boston to face the Bruins doesn’t mean the Black and Gold are going to take them lightly.
Boston hit the Ristuccia Arena ice today for about 30 minutes to fine-tune their game before a showdown with the Habs tomorrow night at the TD Garden.
The Bruins used the same lines that won the game against Winnipeg Tuesday night. Suspended forward Brad Marchand skated in a grey sweater and rotated in on the line with Chris Kelly, Zach Hamill and Rich Peverley. All seven defensemen and both goaltenders were also on the ice.
“He’s got to stay sharp,” said head coach Claude Julien about Marchand. “He’s got to work harder than anyone.”
