Canadiens set to play Bruins


The Montreal Canadiens are ready to add another chapter to one of hockey’s greatest rivalries. After eliminating the Tampa Bay Lightning in four games, Montreal is preparing to face Boston in the second round of the playoffs. It will be the 34th time the clubs have met in the postseason, more than any other two teams in North American pro sports, in a rivalry that dates to 1929. Montreal holds a 24-9 edge in postseason series with Boston. This series could start as early as Thursday; teams will find out once the other first-round series are complete. Boston gets home-ice advantage because the Bruins had the best record (54-19-9) in the league. – AP
