Canadiens Blow Out Bruins to Force Deciding Game 7
(MONTREAL) -- The Montreal Canadiens blew out the Boston Bruins 4-0 in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference seminfinal Monday, to force a decisive Game 7 in Boston on Wednesday night.
Carey Price made 26 saves and Max Pacioretty scored only his second goal of the playoffs in the win.
"I was just waiting for my time to pitch in offensively," Pacioretty said. "Obviously you wanted it to happen more often in the playoffs, but it's two do-or-die games where I've scored a goal so I feel confident that I'm helping the team.
"You want to feel you're helping the team win and I think I did that tonight," he continued.
Although Boston didn't score it had its fair share of chances to do so.
"We had more lines going than we've had this whole series," Bruins head coach Claude Julien said. "We spent a lot of time in the offensive zone, but if you hit posts and miss open nets. ...You've got to bury those chances. Tonight they came back to haunt us."
That means for the ninth time in their playoff histories, the Bruins and Canadiens will play in a do-or-die Game 7.
