Richard RiotOn March 13th, 1955 Maurice "Rocket" Richard was high-sticked in the face and cut for five stitches by Bruins defenceman Hal Laycoe. 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.

Youth Lakers Jerseys . -- The Jacksonville Jaguars are bringing back quarterback Chad Henne -- and making him the starter.SAITAMA, Japan -- A memorable first for Mark Hunt. In a battle of hard-hitting heavyweights, Hunt (10-8-1) proved the superior striker, becoming the first MMA fighter to ever knock out Roy (Big Country) Nelson (20-10). He used a crushing uppercut to score a second-round knockout of Nelson in the main event "UFC Fight Night" on Saturday at the Saitama Super Arena. Hunt and Nelson went toe-to-toe from the start, with each scoring massive punches that threatened to end the fight at any moment. Nelson, the superior wrestler, also looked to take the fight to the floor on a handful of occasions, but Hunt was able to stay on his feet through the opening round. As the second round began, Nelson finally dragged the fight to the floor, but Hunt rolled and bucked until he shook free and got back on his feet. The 40-year-old from New Zealand, known as the Super Samoan, then began to time Nelsons attacks. When Nelson tried again to take the fight to the ground, Hunt countered with a massive uppercut that sent Nelson crashing face-first to the canvas. Hunt walked away with his hands raised while referee Leon Roberts signalled the end of the fight at the 3:00 mark of the second and awarded Hunt the TKO. Hunt, now 5-1-1 in his past seven appearances, appears certain to receive a marquee booking in his next fight. When asked who hed like to face next, Hunt simply replied, "Anyone in the top-10." In the nights co-feature, Myles Jury (15-0) registered the biggest win of his career, taking out Japanese legend Takanori Gomi (35-10) in just 92 seconds. Jury came out firing kicks, but as he settled into a rhythm, it was his hands that did the damage. After avoiding a few wiild Gomi haymakers, Jury scored flush with a right hand, putting Gomi down.dddddddddddd Jury then pounced and sealed the first-round win with a flurry of punches. "To come to Japan for the first time and have a win over a veteran like Gomi is amazing," Jury said after the fight. "Its a great stepping stone in my career." The 25-year-old Jury is now 6-0 in the UFC. Despite fighting for the first time in more than two years, the 39-year-old Yoshihiro Akiyama (14-5) looked in peak form. He dominated Amir Sadollah (6-5) en route to a dominant decision. Sadollah tried his best to kickbox the judo master but Akiyama was able to get inside and take the fight to the floor in all three rounds. From there, Sadollah struggled to regain his feet and suffered the loss by a unanimous decision. Akiyama had 30-27 scores on all three judges cards. "I was reassured that this is where I belong," Akiyama said after the win. In a womens bantamweight matchup, former title challenger Miesha Tate (15-5) won by decision over newcomer Rin Nakai (16-1-1). And while Tate was awarded scores of 29-28, 30-27 and 30-27, the victory didnt come without some challenging moments. Tate used her height and reach advantage to strike from range but the stocky Nakai still managed to get inside and twice took her opponents back. Tate, however, turned aside each advance and controlled most of the action en route to the unanimous-decision. "I wanted to keep enough distance between us and not get caught by her takedowns," Tate said. "I was trying to be strategic and aggressive but not overzealous. "I had to be careful when she was on my back."
