A look at the records set by Bruins, Canadiens in Game 7 of playoff series

BOSTON - Records set or tied Wednesday night during Game 7 of the second-round playoff series between the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens:

— The Bruins played in a Game 7 for an NHL-record seventh consecutive season.

— The Bruins and Canadiens met in their ninth Game 7, the most of any rivalry in North American pro sports.

— Bruins captain Zdeno Chara made his 11th career Game 7 appearance, passing Martin Brodeur, Andrew Ference and Scott Gomez (10) for the most among active players.

— Boston coach Claude Julien was behind the bench for his 10th Game 7, tying Mike Keenan for the most in NHL history among head coaches.

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
