The two Original Six rivals will play on Wednesday night for a spot in the Eastern Conference finals. It will be the ninth time they have met in a seventh game. The Bruins won the most recent one, in the first round of the 2011 playoffs, on their way to the Stanley Cup.
The Bruins had a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series before losing 4-0 in Montreal on Monday night. Bruins coach Claude Julien says he's hoping his team's experience helps them get through it.
That group is not satisfied until we win a Stanley Cup. When we do win that Stanley Cup, I don't think we'll be satisfied then either. We're going to want another one. We have the group to do it. We have all the pieces. We just need to put them together.
