Third period under way
The pace was frantic in the opening minutes of the third period, with each goaltender being tested.

After the Bruins had a good rush broken up, Montreal captain Brian Gionta snuck past the defense and got off a good backhander, only to be denied by Tim Thomas. Play came back the other way, and Carey Price had to make a good stop on a blast from the high slot by Boston captain Zdeno Chara.

Things calmed down slightly, and with 17 minutes remaining, we were still scoreless.
Quote of the Day

With this being the last year [at the Coliseum], we'd love to try to get back to the dance like we did against Pittsburgh and prove ourselves and go even further. It's an important year.

— New York Islanders coach Jack Capuano
