Its more well it is because people here love hockey and they don't like cheap hits or bad hockey.
So why do they play so terribly?

Go BRUINS!

As to the booing of the Anthem, it has been my experience in Canada, that while many are patriotic, they don't typically have the same reaction to their Anthem as Americans. I've seen people stand and offer respect, but for the most part I see talking and laughing. A bit like kids today in the US with her Anthem. Canada knows how touchy the US is about her Anthem and Flag, and in hockey, all is fair in love and ice.
Sadly, however, it seems to be the Canadians that are taking hockey down to a whole new level and getting the police involved in game hits.

OK jtf2, I'll be on the lookout for the rise of the oldest team to rise from the ashes. BTW unless they were playing with themselves, the other original 5 NHL teams were the Bruins, Black hawks, Maple Leafs, Rangers, and Red Wings. Besides whatever the habs did before this season is ancient history and has absolutely no bearing on this year, too bad eh?
Believe me I didn't invent the reference to the habs as "The Most Hated Team In Hockey".

BTW, bad attempt at humor. We'll see who wins this year's match up!

Wow you really looked that up EH?
Quote:
The NHL commenced in 1917, replacing the National Hockey Association (formed in 1910). The first five franchises were Ottawa, Toronto Arenas, Montreal Wanderers, Quebec, and Montreal Canadiens. Quebec did not enter a team in the first competition. After seeing many teams come and go the NHL had settled by 1942 with 6 franchises: the Montreal Canadiens, Toronto Maple Leafs, New York Rangers, Boston Bruins, Detroit Red Wings and the Chicago Blackhawks. These 6 teams remained until the 1967 expansion (when 6 teams were added), and have become known as 'The Original Six'.
Montreal being there wayyy before boston and owning all 6 teams almost every year.

The day ANY team gets more then 24 cups is the Day palestine and israel will be at peace.

OK now I'll answer you as long as you keep it nice enough for the moderators.
As to where I got my info, it's common knowledge for hockey fans. Also this is from NHL.com (of all places)
"Original Six"
The survivors of a league that had grown at times to as many as 10 franchises, and had seen teams change names and cities with regularity in the 1920's and 30's, would settle in an era of stability, known as the age of the "Original Six." The Red Wings, the Blackhawks, the Rangers, the Canadiens, the Bruins, and the Leafs; these few teams would symbolize hockey for fans across North America.
If you insist on talking about ancient pre-NHL times, I heard that there was one game in 1636 where the Wampanoag Whalers played the Pequot Puckheads. It ended in a 26 to 26 tie. The game lasted for 3 months and ended only because springtime caused the ice to melt and they lost the puck at the bottom of the lake. In fact the Puckheads won 28 championships all together. Their cup was made from a gourd though. They may still have one in their casino museum, not sure.
Yes the Canadiens did win last night but the Briuns still lead the series, of course. Did you watch the game? Did you notice how the Bruins' fans cheered the Canadian anthem? What more is there to say?
