The B's enter this matchup with the best record in the league at 34-11-12, but they have little room for error in the race for the Atlantic Division crown. The Tampa Bay Lightning, who have won eight straight games, are just a single point behind the Bruins for first place in the division.
Boston has gotten the better of Montreal this season. The Bruins own a 2-1-0 record with a plus-8 goal differential versus the Canadiens. A win for the Bruins on Wednesday would clinch the season series.
The Canadiens are desperate for a win streak, and a statement victory against a rival on the road presents a great opportunity to spark a late-season push. Montreal is seven points out of a playoff spot in the division, and it's eight points behind the second wild card berth. It's now or never for the Canadiens if they're going to make a real run at securing a berth in the 2020 Stanley Cup playoffs.
