BOSTON (AP) - The Boston Bruins are heading to Montreal with a 3-2 lead over the Canadiens in their first-round playoff series.
But the Bruins know better than anyone that the fourth win is the hardest.
Boston led Philadelphia 3-0 in last year's Eastern Conference semifinals before the Flyers came back to win it. So the Bruins aren't taking anything for granted.
The Bruins won 2-1 on Saturday night on Nathan Horton's goal in double overtime. Boston got some great saves - and not all of them by goalie Tim Thomas. Forward Michael Ryder and defenseman Zdeno Chara also knocked aside shots that were headed to the net.
Game 6 is Tuesday.
