Game 7, again: Canadiens take Pens to last game

NHL.com @NHL

PITTSBURGH (AP) -The Penguins' record in home Game 7s isn't very good. The Canadiens' Game 7 record this spring couldn't be any better.

For the second successive playoff series, the Canadiens have forced a Game 7. After upsetting NHL regular season champion Washington in the first round, the Canadiens will play another against the reigning Stanley Cup champion Penguins in Pittsburgh on Wednesday night.

The Penguins are 2-4 in Game 7s at Mellon Arena, beating only the Washington Capitals twice. Pittsburgh did win two Game 7s on the road last spring, defeating Washington and Detroit.

Montreal forced the Game 7 by getting two more goals from Mike Cammalleri in a 4-3 victory Monday night. Cammalleri has outscored Penguins star Sidney Crosby 6-1 in the series.
