If leaving then, you're taking a HUGE risk IMO. You're looking at a 5 and a half hour drive in good traffic conditions. If there are any significant backups anywhere on your route (and I've seen it backed up 5+ miles into town from the north on I93 with some regularity around after 6PM even in non-event days....all it takes is one accident - even if it's on 95 anywhere near the interchange in Woburn - or a backup up toll to screw up everything), you could easily miss some of the game.
I'd honestly leave no later than noon, especially if you're planning on having dinner beforehand. My 7 year old boy likes Boston Beerworks and Halftime Pizza, which are basically right across from the Garden, but there are a ton of decent places all around there with essentially the same menus.
Thanks for the advice! I meant arriving at 2:00 pm - hoping to leave Mtl by 9:00 am. I want to get there asap to enjoy the city before the game - only been there 3 times before. Good to know about the restaurant!
