Heading into game three of the Montreal Canadiens/ Boston bruins series one thing is for sure—the Bruins need to be better, and history is not on the Bruins side.
The Bruins are probably all too aware that the team that goes up two games to none in the playoffs wins the series an astounding 85 percent of the time.
Helping the Bruins tonight will be the addition of all-star defenseman Zdeno Chara to the lineup, who had missed game two with severe dehydration.
To be fair, Chara wasn't the only Bruin missing in action in Game 2.
The Bruins first unit of Milan Lucic, Natahan Horton and David Krejci went scoreless for the second game in a row, largely in thanks to the tremendous defensive work from Canadiens forward Tomas Plekanec.
Canadiens Carey Price continues to look dominant, while Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas has looked rather ordinary to say the least.
With the series shifting to Montreal for the next two games you just know the Habs fans will be very boisterous.
Thought to be the underdog heading into the series, Montreal has beaten Boston in all aspects of the game, leading to a well deserved 2-0 lead in the series.
Expect the Bell Centre to be very loud tonight—especially during the opening series where the Habs fans are sure to let their emotions out.
