Dale Weise: Canadiens rooted for Bruins to extend winning streak so they could break it

The Bruins claim to not care about their 12-game-winning streak, but the Canadiens certainly do.
Habs forward Dale Weise shared after Montreal’s morning skate Monday that the Canadiens actually wanted the Bruins to win Saturday night against the Coyotes so the Habs could have the opportunity to snap the streak Monday night at TD Garden.
The Canadiens got their first part of their wish, as Boston came back with three unanswered goals in the third period to beat Phoenix, 4-2.
‘We were checking the score the other night against Phoenix, and Phoenix was up going into the third period and we were kind of hoping Boston would come back and win so we would get the chance to knock them off,’ Weise said.
Weise already has some history with the Bruins, as he was a member of the Canucks the year after the B’s played Vancouver in the Stanley Cup finals. In the team’s first meeting after the finals on Jan. 7, 2012, Weise challenged Adam McQuaid to fight, but when Shawn Thornton accepted the invitation instead and dropped his gloves, Weise kept his gloves on.
