Richard RiotOn March 13th, 1955 Maurice "Rocket" Richard was high-sticked in the face and cut for five stitches by Bruins defenceman Hal Laycoe. Mike Tolbert Jersey . In the ensuing melee, Richard smashed Laycoe in the face with his stick, knocked out a linesman, and narrowly avoided being arrested by the Boston police. Or whats known in NHL circles as "hockey." Commissioner Clarence Campbell suspended Richard for the duration of the season and playoffs, which enraged the entitled Canadiens fan base. When Campbell attended the next Habs home game, the fans pelted him with eggs, vegetables, and other inexplicably handy detritus. A tear gas bomb was set off in the Forum to diffuse the situation, and the building was evacuated. What followed was a riot that engulfed the neighbourhood around the Forum, injuring over 40 policemen and civilians, resulting in $500000 ($4.5 million in 2014 dollars) in damages and dozens of arrests. The chaos lasted until 3am, interestingly also closing time for Montreal bars. The riot has taken on a mythology typical of Quebecs relationship with hockey. Many cite the Anglophone suspension of a Francophone player as a contributing factor in the Quiet Revolution of the 1960s. Others simply argue it gives Montrealers an excuse to set fire to stuff after hockey games. Ken Dryden Ken Dryden was drafted 14th overall in 1964 by the Bruins. Later in the day, he was traded to the Habs with Alex Campbell for Paul Reid and Guy Allen. Campbell, Reid, and Allen eventually combined to play zero NHL games, while Dryden would go on to get a BA from Cornell, win six Stanley Cups, get a law degree from McGill, win five Vezinas and a Conn Smythe, write a best-selling book, and be generally considered the best goalie of his generation while contributing to the Habs dominance over the Bruins and the league during that era. So lopsided was the trade that Dryden was unaware of it until the mid-70s. Reid didnt find out until 2002, and that discovery was predicated on the invention of the Internet. Too Many MenThe Bruins-Habs rivalry would reach its heights the 1970s, making it the most enduring and compelling matchup in sports, and creating the template for the hate that exists between the two teams today. Bobby Orr, arguably the best player of his generation, led the Bruins of the era while the Habs were the epitome of what a franchise should be, the crown jewel of the league led by coach Scotty Bowman. No moment would better represent the rivalry than the infamous too many men penalty taken by the Bruins in the 1979 semi-finals. Don Cherry, coaching the Bruins, could never quite get past his counterpart Bowmans Habs, having lost in the finals in 77 and 78. During seventh and deciding game, and having just taken the lead on a Rick Middleton goal, the Bruins were assessed a too many men on the ice penalty. Guy Lafleur would tie the game on the ensuing power play and Yvon Lambert would score in OT to send the Bruins home. Cherry would ultimately lose his job, and eventually end up on Hockey Night in Canada where he would perpetuate the rivalry with his Boston bias, intense hatred of the Habs, and inability to pronounce Francophone surnames. The Canadiens would go on to sweep the Rangers in the Cup final. Though the rivalry would continue, the 80s and 90s were marked mostly with brawls and only two Cups for the Habs.PedroThe Boston-Montreal rivalry extends beyond hockey, and nowhere is this more apparent than in the Pedro Martinez trade from the Montreal Expos to the Boston Red Sox in 1997, which would ultimately signal the end of days for the Expos. Montreal, having already endured the nightmare of a cancelled 1994 season where they were the most dominant team in baseball, and the sell-off or loss of players such as Larry Walker, Marquis Grissom, and Ken Hill, were struggling to maintain relevancy and a fan base. General manager Dan Duquette (the architect of the 94 team) and a native Massachusite, left to become GM of the Red Sox in 1994, and three years later robbed his former team in acquiring Martinez, the premiere pitcher of his generation and in his prime, for Carl Pavano, Tony Armas Jr., and a box of Kleenex. Martinez would go on to be a Sox mainstay and win a World Series in 2004, the same year the Spos left Montreal for Washington. BrosThe drinking age in Massachusetts is 21. The drinking age in Montreal is 18. Kind of. I mean, if you can make your way to a bar in Montreal, youre going to get served. Babies can be seen in sipping from shot glasses. Sweet 16s are held in bars. Its a fun city, the bars are open late, and there are strip clubs everywhere. There are 58 post-secondary institutions in the Boston area. Its a six-hour drive from Boston to Montreal. A forty dollar bus trip. The result? A wealth of bros infiltrating Montreal, a city they hate, to indulge in the citys offerings. Summer nights are marred by puking frat boys, eight to a hotel room, loitering Crescent Street, hitting on unimpressed locals, polluting the air with Boston slang and unearned bravado.So many tucked-in golf shirts. So many Red Sox hats. So many goatees. So many pre-ripped jeans. So many gold crosses on necklaces. So many diamond studs. Its like an Abercrombie ad got a Coors Light ad pregnant at Maroon 5 concert at Fenway and gave birth to an army of bros. Montrealers hate it, yet endure it. It fuels the fire.The Pacioretty Incident and the 2011 Playoffs On March 8th, 2011, while skating down the boards, Habs winger Max Pacioretty was checked into the metal upright that ends the glass by Bruins defenceman Zdeno Chara. The hit, even to the most strident of Bruins supporters, could at best be called gruesome. Pacioretty suffered a severe concussion and a fractured vertebra. Chara received no supplemental discipline, leading to Habs fan outrage and a Montreal police investigation. [Sidebar: You know you have a good rivalry when the police get involved on a regular basis.] Bruins winger Mark Recchi (a former Canadien) openly questioned the severity of Paciorettys injury, despite Recchis inability to complete medical school. The incident provided additional animus for the first round playoff meeting between the teams. Recchi, still not a medical professional, did not relent in his comments. The series went a thrilling seven games, with the Habs P.K. Subban tying game seven late and forcing overtime. Early in OT, the Bruins Nathan Horton scored to win the series. Boston would go on to win the Stanley Cup for the first time since 1972, devastating Habs fans.Pacioretty would recover to become the Habs most prolific goal scorer in twenty years. Mark Recchi would retire after the Cup win, and as of yet is still not a licensed practitioner of medicine.P.K. SubbanHabs and Bruins fans like nothing more (other than victories and Cups) than booing each others players. No more has this been more evident in the current incarnation of the rivalry than in the Bruins disaffection for Habs defenceman Pernell Karl Subban. It seems to be more venomous and vitriolic than hatred of the past, more angry and intense than the booing that Subban gets in nearly every other arena he visits, except the Bell Centre. Id like to write that it isnt racism, but its totally racism. Is my argument anecdotal and biased? Yes, yes it is. But anecdote and bias are the backbone of sports journalism, so Im going to argue that the most contentious of entities in the contemporary Boston-Montreal rivalry is Bruins fans intense and racially motivated hatred of the most dynamic defenceman to lace up Bauers since, well, Bobby Orr. The series will be a bloodbath, no doubt, and add to the legacy of its legend. Boston fans: Please direct your hatred to @mdspry on Twitter. Habs fans: Dont set fire to stuff. Kyle Williams Jersey .

Gonzalo Pineda also scored on a first-half penalty kick for the Sounders (9-3-2). Pappas goal was his first of the season. Barrett scored for the second straight game, giving him three goals for the year. Martins tallied his sixth. While Seattle won its MLS-high fifth straight home match, Salt Lake (6-1-6) fell for the first time, missing a chance to set an MLS record for longest unbeaten streak to start the year. Los Angeles (12-0 in 1996 and 10-0-2 in 2010) and Kansas City (10-0-2 in 2000) previously had 12-game season-opening undefeated streaks. Salt Lake also had an overall 16-game regular-season unbeaten streak (8-0-8) end. RSL hadnt lost since last Sept. 21 at home against San Jose, 2-1. "We talked about it before the game that we wanted to break the streak and keep the record for a couple of people," Sounders head coach Sigi Schmid said. "But mainly, we talked about us being No. 1 going against No. 2, and we have to show what were made of. "As a group, were maturing, and to be able to step into a game between first place and second place and win and have a convincing result speaks volumes for our character." Pinedas penalty kick was set up when a loose ball in the RSL box was sent toward the left post. Lamar Neagle of the Sounders chased after it, and was pushed to the ground by Aaron Maund, Pineda then beat goalkeeper Jeff Attinella to the back left side midway tthrough the 42nd minute. Richie Incognito Jersey. Pappas goal late in the 55th minute came off of a direct free kick, launched over a six-man wall from 23 yards away on the right side. Barrett made it 3-0 early in the 62nd minute with a 12-yard shot that went high into the net. Martins notched the final goal late in the 90th minute on a give-and-go with Kenny Cooper. With the upcoming World Cup shaking up MLS rosters, both teams were without key players. Among the Sounders missing was leading goal scorer Clint Dempsey (eight goals). That created an opportunity for Barrett, who started and scored for the second week in a row. "I talked to Sigi, and he said since Dempsey was going to be gone for World Cup, there were going to be opportunities to step in," Barrett said. "In the practice weeks leading up to it, I was going to make sure that my fitness was where it needed to be. Coming in here, once you get one, the goal just seems to get a little bit bigger every time." Real Salt Lake is the second-highest scoring team in MLS behind Seattle. But of those 23 goals, 14 were missing due to World Cup (two for Kyle Beckerman) or injury (six each for Alvaro Saborio and Joao Plata). "Its a tough place to play, and we dont have a full arsenal," coach Jeff Cassar said. "But I thought the guys out there did a very good job. I just told the guys to discount the third and fourth goals, because we were pushing and we knew we were going to be exposed at the back. "It was a fantastic run that we went on, but Im trying to make sure the team will react the same way I do: We have work to do, and its on to the next game."
