Game preview: Boston Bruins at Montreal Canadiens – 7:00 p.m. ET
The Canadiens will be looking for a greater contribution from their top scorers Max Pacioretty and Thomas Vanek. The two snipers have been held in check by Bruin captain Zdeno Chara and goalie Tukka Rask.
The CBC's Tim Wharnsby writes:
If the Montreal Canadiens hope to force a Game 7 against the Boston Bruins, they know they need more production at even strength. They haven't scored an even-strength goal since Dale Weise's successful breakaway 13 minutes and 52 seconds into the second period of Game 3. That's 147:27 without an even-strength goal.

The Canadiens were in the same position in the first round against Boston in 2011, winning Game 6 at home before losing the seventh game in overtime. The Bruins went on to win the Stanley Cup.
"Some of our guys have done this before," centre David Desharnais said. "We're in front of our fans and we like the way we play at home."
Canadiens defenceman P.K. Subban said he thinks his team can do it.
"We have enough here. We just have to bring it facing elimination," he said. "I still think that we are in a good spot. We are going back home. That's the barn, it's going to be loud. It's going to be full of energy. We are going to be ready to play, that's for sure."
