The Boston Bruins have an opportunity to close out the Montreal Canadiens and advance to the Eastern Conference finals with a win Monday night at Bell Centre.
A Canadiens win in Game 6, however, would send the teams back to Boston for a decisive Game 7, which would be played Wednesday at 7 p.m.
The Bruins hold a 3-2 lead in the second-round Stanley Cup playoff series after their 4-2 win Saturday in Game 5. Boston has reached the conference finals in two of the last three seasons — and won both series — while Montreal has advanced past the East semifinals only once since winning the Cup in 1993.
Pregame and postgame coverage for Game 6 will air live on NESN, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Monday, with puck drop set for 7:30 p.m.
