Bruins force game 7
Well, that was exciting.
An end-to-end third period including 5 goals in the final 10 minutes, the Bruins defeated the Canadiens in game 6, staying alive and turning it into a one-game series. If you're a believer in momentum, then your money's on Boston.
If the Capitals were the Cinderella story of the regular season, then the Bruins are the Cinderella story of the 2008 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Boston struggled with injuries all season. Only the Islanders and the Panthers had more man-games lost this season. And the Bruins' key injuries - Patrice Bergeron, Alexei Zhamnov and Manny Fernandez - are out indefinitely with little hope of returning for the post-season. When you've got Milan Lucic logging power play time, you know you have some challenges to overcome.
Game 7 is Monday night. Set your DVRs.
