WATCH LIVE: Boston Bruins at Montreal Canadiens (Game 6)

Only one Canadian team made it to the playoffs and that squad is now one loss away from eliminated.

The Canadiens had a 2-1 series lead over Boston with Game 4 in Montreal, but Tuukka Rask stood tall in that critical contest and Bruins forward Matt Fraser was the unlikely overtime hero in his first career playoff game.

That goal shifted the momentum of this series as Boston came out strong in Game 5. Taking advantage of their power-play opportunities, they had a 3-0 lead early in the second period. Montreal rallied back a little, but never got within one goal of the Bruins after that point.

With Montreal fighting for its campaign, two guys to keep an eye on are Canadiens forwards Max Pacioretty and David Desharnais. The duo has been lackluster offensively in the postseason and Montreal will have a hard time winning back-to-back games against a team like Boston unless they break out of their respective droughts.

The game will start at 7:30 p.m. ET and air on NBCSN. You can also stream it online:

    Bruins antics on Saturday were an embarrassment to the league. $2800 fine just reinforces that Boston gets to play by a different set of rules because of Campbell’s conflict of interest.

      What are the reasons that Anaheim and the Rangers get to squirt water and destroy mankind?

    Won’t be much time now until the first Montreal power play.

      His hit on Emellin was so much better than a poke in the nuts. Love his game when he plays like that.

    Going back to Boston where Montreal will wrap it up and all these bruin fans can go back to whatever a bruin fan does
