- Game 4. The decisive game. Game 3 was a "must" win, but tonight's game will decide the series. if montreal continues to play with intensity and Theo steps up, Montreal will be on a roll. Ryder will definitly have to transport the second line as Ribeiro will be busy keeping is head up all night. We can also expect to see a better play from Souray who after 2 horrible periods, seemed more present in the 3rd.

We're still in DOWNTOWN MONTREAL, let the show goes on !

News, notes and Quotes:

- Bruins powerplay in game 3. (0 / 2)
- Habs Powerplay in game 3. (0 / 4)
- Nylander out in Game 3 will be a game time decision in game 4. I expect him to be there.
- Kovalev, Kovalev, Kovalev ! Finally. i will say it again, wouldn't have CJ saved some time if he had brought "The Prince" on the Koivu's line sooner?
- Raycroft is outplaying our national Theo. If you want to steal a game my dear Jose, tonight and Thursday would be a great time.
- Ryder is up to score a couple of goals tonight, i called local psychic "JoJo Savard" and after spending 300$ for a wonderfull 10 mn, she told me so.
- People use to say that as far as Theodore goes, the habs go. Well since the 2nd game, we can say that the real leader of the team is stepping up. Way to go "el Capitan !!!"
- ``I think it's an embarrassment to our game to see that,'' McGillis said. ``If he's hurt, the trainer's got to go out and help him, but you can't sit out on the ice like that and cry wolf.
- ``The guy was hurt,'' Souray said. ``He didn't practice, so something's up. If Boston needed something to get them motivated, we're not buying into it. Mike's getting the rest and treatment he needs and hopefully, he'll be there next game.''
