Another meeting with the Montreal Canadiens looms Saturday night for the Boston Bruins.

Nine games into defending their Stanley Cup championship, the Boston Bruins did not expect to occupy the cellar in the Eastern Conference. But that's exactly where the Bruins sit.

Boston (3-6-0) will get another chance to spark its batteries in Montreal against the rival Canadiens Saturday at 7 p.m. (CBC, RDS HD, NHLN-US, NESN HD), two days after the Canadiens outlasted the Bruins 2-1 in Boston

"It's definitely not where we want to be or where we envision ourselves being," defenseman Adam McQuaid said. "We don't want to put ourselves in any more of a hole so we have to make sure we come out ready to play on Saturday, not just with a good first period but a solid full game."    

One bright spot for the Bruins has been young center Tyler Seguin. The 19-year old has adjusted well to a bigger role, leading Boston with three goals and six assists through nine games.
