Obviously a must win for the Habs. The Habs desperately need Markov, their best player and MVP, in the lineup. It's like watching two completely different teams when he isn't in there. Without him, I can't see this series going more than 5. If he does return, the Habs could still be heard from. I think Lucic's impact is overblown and not having him in the lineup won't hurt the Bruin's chances much. Chara is the guy that stirs the drink.

Also the Laraque on the 1st line experiment should end. Koivu/Kovalev/Tanguay were flying at the end of the season and it made absolutely no sense to break up that line and the chemistry they had going. It's no coincidence that Kovalev has scored his two goals when Laraque was on the bench. Laraque has a role, but that role should not be on the 1st line under most circumstances.
