Boston Bruins (3) vs. Montreal Canadiens (6) Last time in playoffs: Both qualified in 2010 Playoff history: Montreal leads, 24-8 Last meeting: 2009, Boston won 4-0 Season series: Montreal 4-2-0; Boston 2-3-1 Series snapshot: The latest renewal of the NHL's most-frequent playoff rivalry figures to be intense. Montreal won four of the six meetings, but the Bruins' two wins included a penalty-filled 8-6 victory in February and a 7-0 rout on March 24 that included a hit by Boston defenseman Zdeno Chara that knocked Max Pacioretty out for the regular season. The Canadiens are smaller but faster; the Bruins have more size and are among the NHL's best when playing 5-on-5. The Canadiens will need the kind of goaltending from Carey Price that they got from Jaroslav Halak during last spring's surprising run to the Eastern finals.
