NHL Playoffs 2011: 5 Reasons the Montreal Canadiens Will Beat the Boston Bruins

Are you ready for another Montreal Canadiens and Boston Bruins playoff matchup?

Are you ready for the 33rd installment of these two hated rivals going at it?

This year's precursors to this playoff matchup during the season has this year's edition of the battle of these long time rivals more hyped up than anytime in recent memory.

Though the Canadiens did pull out the season series 4-2, the Bruins were not as easy pushovers as they were in 2008 when the Canadiens won the entire season series and dominated Boston.

But then something happened to the Habs in that series that spelled their doom for the rest of the playoffs and the Bruins didn't seem so friendly.

February 9th is a date that sticks in my mind as the culmination of the hated rivals hatred for each other in a bloody 8-6 Bruins win.

Montreal won three of their four wins against Boston at home while being thumped in the other two road contests in Boston.

Paint it as you will, I believe the Canadiens have more than a winning season series record to be able to beat the Bruins in the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
