After an exciting fast pace crazy game last night that lasted 4 and half periods, there will be another must win game for both teams especially the Canadiens. Coming back to Montreal with the crowd behind them the Habs will look to do something they did and successfully accomplished last year during this time. being down in both series one and two of last years playoffs the Habs played spoiler against two teams that were exepcted to go far. Once again the Bruins were expected to go far, they got off to a bad start but now hold a 3-2 series lead.
Key Notes: David Desharnais did not play the latter half of the 2nd overtime after being hit on the knee by Bruins defenceman Johnny Boychuk. Desharnais suffered a knee injury and is doubtful for game 6. James Wizniewski also was injured during game 5, don’t know exactly what the injury is but it may be an upper body considering on how he was playing. He did come back for the 2nd overtime played just a couple of shifts. No update on his status.
The Montreal Canadiens just need to pull that magic together and power through game 6. They need to get to every puck first and just shoot from everywhere, Tim Thomas throughout this series has made exceptional stops than at times lets in a softy.
