MONTREAL (AP) -The Montreal Canadiens might face more pressure at home with their season on the line than they did in staving off elimination in Washington.

With two days off before Game 6 of the Eastern Conference first-round series on Monday night, the high expectations of Canadiens' fans were felt in the team's dressing room.

The Canadiens have already lost twice at home to the Capitals in this series, but they stayed alive with a road win in Game 5. Montreal will need to knock off the Presidents' Trophy winners at the Bell Centre to force a deciding Game 7 back in Washington.

The Capitals lead the series 3-2.
