Welcome back
Hope you're all refreshed and ready for the evening portion of our big day of hockey, beginning with Game 5 between the Bruins and Canadiens from Boston.

TD Garden in Boston is packed with 17,565 fans – many of whom a week ago probably thought they'd be spending their Saturday night doing something else. A week ago, Montreal went home after sweeping the first two games in Boston. But the Bruins returned the favor by winning Games 3 and 4 in Montreal, pulling even by beating the Habs 5-4 in overtime.

So who wins – can the Habs continue the success road teams have had in this series (and the first round of the playoffs in general)? Or will the Bruins find a way to keep rolling?
Quote of the Day

[Stamkos] is a great teammate and a great leader, that's why he's got the 'C'. He brings that tremendous work ethic to the rink and he's one of the top players in the game. I know if I put the passes where they are supposed to be, there's a very good chance he's going to put it in the back of the net.
