Can the Habs hold on to their lead in Game 2 of the series against arch rival the Boston Bruins?

The Bruins are looking to shake off their double-overtime loss and gain on the Montreal Canadiens' Game 1 win.

There was electricity in the air in Boston this morning, or as big-time Habs fan David Kellerman described it, a "stirring feeling."

He headed to Boston early Saturday morning with one of his closest friends in tow — and they were brave enough to wear their Habs jerseys in public.

“We’re in downtown Boston at Fenway Market and we’re getting stared at, we’re getting the evil eye," Kellerman told All In a Weekend host Sonali Karnick.

The long-standing rivalry between the Habs and Bruins makes their games some of the most exciting hockey in the NHL.

“They bring out in the best in each other, and I guess that’s what a good rivalry is predicated on. I mean, it has to be evenly matched and the emotion is so high that it carries you, it carries these players on the ice," Kellerman said from Boston.

"They got barely a day and a half’s rest in them. They’ve got to be back out on the ice full-tilt, so I think it’s going to be a terrific game."

The game starts at 12:30 p.m. ET at Boston's TD Garden. Watch it online on CBC Sports.
