Bruins-Canadiens Game 7 To Be 7 P.M. Wednesday In Boston, If Necessary


Brad Marchand, Mike Weaver, Francis Bouillon, Carey PriceThe 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.
