Canadiens Vs. Bruins, Game 7: Hated Rivals Do Battle One More Time, Look To Advance

The Montreal Canadiens held off the Boston Bruins in Game 6 on Tuesday night, and less than 24 hours later, the teams are set to do battle at TD Garden in Boston for the decisive Game 7 of their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series.

A big reason for that outcome just a night ago was the lack of discipline shown by the Bruins. High (or low) lighted by Milan Lucic's major penalty on that Jaroslav Spacek hit which ultimately resulted in the game-winning Montreal goal, the Bruins haven't done the greatest job in staying out of the box.

Of course, at the same time, they haven't been able to capitalize on the power play either -- zero goals in 19 chances in this series -- and that's a big reason why we're still playing hockey in Boston on Wednesday night. 

Claude Julien and these Bruins have faced three Game 7's in the last three seasons. In 2008, they fell to these Habs in Game 7, in 2009 they fell in the semifinals to the Carolina Hurricanes in Game 7, and just last year the Bruins took a 3-0 lead in the series, dropped that, then took a 3-0 lead in Game 7 before dropping that and losing in regulation to the Philadelphia Flyers

Speaking of the Flyers, should the Bruins squeak out this Game 7 on Wednesday, they'll head to Philadelphia for a rematch with those Flyers in the Conference Semifinals. Should Montreal win Game 7, they'll book a flight for Washington and a date with the Capitals
