2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs: Bruins vs. Canadiens, Game 4 Live Blog
Just moments away from Game 4 between the Montreal Canadiens and Boston Bruins, it appears as if Jeff Halpern will be in for the Habs, while Boston will make no roster changes for tonight's 2011 Stanley Cup Playoff game.
With the Bruins yet to put together a full 60-minute game, it will be interesting to see which Bruins team shows up—the one that played so well through the first two periods of Game 3, or the one that almost let a huge lead slip away in the final period of that very same game.
The Bruins netminder was money down the stretch, making a number of great saves, which, in turn, made it possible for the Bruins to pull off their Game 4 win.
The home team is yet to win a game in this series. Montreal is bound to be extremely loud tonight, which should give the Habs a boast throughout the game.
As is the case in every playoff game, it will be to the Bruins advantage to get off to a quick start. The team that has scored the first goal has won every game, so it's a good omen to score the games first goal.
Carey Price called out his teammates after the Habs Game 3 loss, questioning their readiness to play and intensity levels both before and throughout the game.
Will the Habs respond for their goaltender, or will they come out flat as they did in Game 3?
Milan Lucic is yet to score a goal for the Bruins thus far. A big reason he has been kept off the scoreboard has been the stellar play of P.K. Subban, who, in my opinion, has owned Lucic all series long.
Along the same line, Habs forward Tomas Plekanec has put on a defensive clinic, keeping Bruins forward David Krejci to just one goal thus far.
Win Game 4 and you can all but call the Habs the winner of the series. Lose, and the Habs will have to win go back to Boston for what could be the final two of three games in the series.
Will the Bruins nullify the Habs two-game sweep of the Bruins at the Gardens by accomplishing the exact same thing in Montreal's building? That remains to be seen, but if they do, you can all but reset the series.
That's all from me...
Until next time,
