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.
Well, for me this one's concerning, the way we performed. Because three games in, playing a desperate team on the road, I was expecting something else than this. Right now, I'm just disappointed. The other games, I thought we did some things that you can build off your game. There wasn't a lot accomplished in tonight's game.
