Au Revoir Les Habitants

Yes! The Bruins beat the Montreal Canadiens 4-1 and swept their arch-rival 4 games to 0 in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal. The victory marked the Bruins' first NHL play-off series win since 1999 and it was the first time the B's have beaten the Canadiens in a series since 1994. Plus, it was their first series sweep since 1992 in which they beat the Candiens too.

This win was sweetest for Bruins' Coach Claude Julien and Winger Michael Ryder who were both sent packing by Montreal and now have a new home in Boston. Also, this series victory could be considered a mini-payback for recent losses to Montreal in 2008, 2004, and 2002. Sorry Montreal fans, but karma can be a bitch and this should teach you not to 'boo' another country's National Anthem!
