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?
This team has been a real treat to say you've been the head coach of them. I'm extremely proud of this group ... after the disappointment of (the Game 6 loss) is digested, it's always a lot easier as a coach when your team has emptied its tank, and that team emptied its tank for me for three months.
