(SportsNetwork.com) - The Boston Bruins will try to close out the Montreal Canadiens and earn a second straight trip to the Eastern Conference finals when they visit the Habs for Monday's Game 6 battle at the Bell Centre.
The defending East champions hold a 3-2 edge in this best-of-seven set after claiming a 4-2 win Saturday on home ice. The Bruins hope to move on Monday by posting a third consecutive victory over the Canadiens.
Montreal, meanwhile, hopes to win its first elimination game of this postseason. The Canadiens swept Tampa Bay in the first round and held leads of 1-0 and 2-1 in this series against rival Boston. Montreal hasn't made it to the conference final round since 2010 when it lost in five games to Philadelphia.
