Its back to Montreal for the bruins and all that is in their minds is that they need to win. Coming into this game many thought that Montreal was going to come out and take it to the bruins for the upset but, the only ones going home upset were the people of Montreal.


In the first, both teams would continue to play the way they had been all series. At 8:34, Marco Sturm would go to the box for interference and Sergei Kostitsyn for diving and both teams would play 4 on 4. Then at 9:47 Montreal’s Alex Kovalev puts the puck in with assists coming from Patrice Brisebois and Roman Hamrlik. Both teams would each get 1 powerplay chance but would not convert ending the period with Montreal ahead 1-0 and out shooting Boston 12-7.


On to the second at 7:20 Canadian Roman Hamerlik would go to the box for holding letting Boston try to tie it up and they did Ference would send the puck to Krejci at the point who would find the returning Phil Kessel who gets the tying powerplay goal at 7:45.  Another 4 on 4 moment would emerge as Marco Sturm would head off for diving and Mike Komisarik for interference at 9:27. Players would return to the ice going back to 5 on 5 and again each get 1 powerplay chance each but no goals would arise ending the period tied at 1 with Boston out shooting Montreal 7-6.


Into the third Montrealwould loose Capitan Alex Kovalev just 23 seconds into the period for a high stick bringing the Bostonpowerplay to the ice again. They would fail to convert again going 1 for 4.
