Big Game 7 Tonight: Habs-Bruins

Tonight Boston and Montreal square off in the decisive game of their quarterfinal series. It has been a hard fought contest and Montreal has looked very good. Either team can win and should go on to the cup final if they do. What it will come down to are a few key things:

  • Who gets the first goal
  • Montreal quieting the crowd early on
  • Goaltending
  • Special teams
  • The speed of Montreal (Beaulieu was a nice lineup change over Murray last game)

I am looking for Gionta, Gallagher, Price and Montreal's entire blue line to have strong games.
