Bruins are in the cables.
Tonight the Montreal Canadiens can finish off the Boston Bruins, a team that is reeling and will be definatly out of the playoff picture with a loss tonight. The Habs have won 4 of their last 5 games and have kept their chances alive.
The team is in a 3-way tie with the Toronto Maple Leafs and the defending Stanley Cup champs Carolina Hurricanes with 80 points, good for 8th place of the NHL Eastern conference.
Unless a huge surprise, Jaroslav Halak will once again be in net for Montreal. In his last start, Halak has registered his first NHL shutout in career with a superb performance against those same Bruins.
This is a golden opportunity for the Habs to score points as they will face very tough opposition next week. They cannot afford to drop such an occasion. Here is the Eastern conference playoff race as of today:
