Stanley Cup Playoffs 2014: Bruins Vs. Canadiens Rivalry Highlights Second Round Of NHL Playoffs

A rivalry is defined by fierce competition for the same objective or for superiority in the same field. When it comes to the NHL and the Stanley Cup Playoffs, there is no more heated rivalry than that between the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens. In the second round of the 2014 NHL Playoffs, the Bruins and Canadiens will face-off for the 34th time in postseason history. While the rivalry brings excitement, in the playoffs, it has often brought a history of one-sidedness, with the Habs holding a 24-9 edge over the Bruins in playoff history. Still, as we have seen in recent history, once the puck drops in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the numbers can all be thrown out the window. If you like excitement, exhilaration and a thrilling ride, then you have found the right game.

Speaking of an exhilarating ride, you have got to try out the new Can-Am Spyder. Thanks to BRP and Can-Am Spyder and a great partnership with the NHL, you can also experience an exciting and thrilling ride! If you don’t believe me, just ask six-time Stanley Cup winner and Hall of Fame center Mark Messier, who knows a thing or two about fun and excitement, as well as making good on guarantees when it comes to playoff hockey! Boston fans are still a bit sore over Messier and his Edmonton Oilers defeating the Bruins in the 1990 Stanley Cup Finals, but nobody can be down when riding a Spyder!

When it comes to excitement, nothing beats the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs and the Can-Am Spyder. It is no wonder why BRP and the Can-Am Spyder chose to form a partnership with the league that offers the best action, the most excitement and so much exhilaration. Plus, does it get more exciting than having the greatest rivalry in the NHL take place in the second round of the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs between two of the Original Six?


Game 1 is set in the TD Garden for Thursday night at 7:30 pm. Boston will host Game 2 on Saturday afternoon, while the series will shift to Montreal for Games 3 and 4 on Tuesday and Thursday.

Of course, that is not the only exciting matchup featured in the conference semifinals. The Pittsburgh Penguins and New York Rangers will square off in the other Eastern Conference series, while the Western Conference will feature the Anaheim Ducks against the history-making Los Angeles Kings, as well as the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks taking on an exhausted Minnesota Wild.

If you are searching for even more exhilaration off the ice, then look no further than the Can-Am Spyder, which features the only roadster with a Y-frame design and seven automotive technologies, allowing for open-road riding and a greater sense of control.

Many experts want to point to the fact that the Canadiens are playing their best hockey of the year, as well as the fact that they took the regular season series against the Bruins. To that point, the Detroit Red Wings were also playing their best hockey of the season and were finally as close to full health as they have been all year long, and also took the regular season series against the Bruins. Boston won that series in five games. My prediction is that they will take this series against Montreal, but that it will not end nearly as quickly.
