On to Boston

Where the red-hot Bruins await.
The Canadiens board a charter Sunday afternoon for the beginning of their longest road trip of the season.
Boston on Monday, then Chicago and Winnipeg back-to-back at midweek before a break for Christmas.
Then it’s Ottawa on the 27th, followed by the traditional end-of-year trip to Florida.

The hectic schedule means Randy Cunneyworth doesn’t have much time to tweak the system or install a new one. The only full-out practice the team has scheduled is Friday morning in Brossard.

Maybe it’s a good thing the Canadiens are getting out of Dodge.

They have slipped to 12th in the Eastern Conference and have lost a mind-boggling 13 of the 18 games they’ve played at the Bell Centre, where it’s beginning to dawn on fans that a 25th Stanley Cup is not viewable on the near horizon.
