MONTREAL — Greetings from the Bell Centre where the Canadiens players are donning sweaters that must be 100th Anniversary edition uniforms, but — if you asked this puck philistine — look more like pajamas than hockey jerseys.
Bruins defenseman Matt Hunwick didn’t make the trip to Montreal for this afternoon’s matinee against the Habs, and will miss his second straight game with flu-like symptoms. B’ s coach Claude Julien also revealed that, as expected, Tim Thomas will get the start in net this afternoon against the arch-rival Canadiens at the Bell Centre. That essentially means it’s the same lineup as yesterday for the Black and Gold with Thomas instead between the pipes.
Today is Boston’s last regular season trip to Montreal, with only an April 9 tilt at the Garden remaining on the schedule.
