BOSTON – The Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens are gearing up for yet another Game 7.
The two Original Six rivals will play on Wednesday night for a spot in the Eastern Conference finals. It will be the ninth time they have met in a seventh game. The Bruins won the most recent one, in the first round of the 2011 playoffs, on their way to the Stanley Cup.
The Bruins had a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series before losing 4-0 in Montreal on Monday night. Bruins coach Claude Julien says he's hoping his team's experience helps them get through it.
