MONTREAL — Good morning from the Bell Centre, where the Bruins will look to tie the series at 2-2 tonight against the Canadiens.
We might get word later this morning regarding the status of Chris Kelly. The third-line forward didn’t practice yesterday in Lake Placid, N.Y. Claude Julien said yesterday that Kelly should be available. If Kelly can’t play, Tyler Seguin would most likely make his NHL playoff debut.
Puck drop: 7 p.m.
Record: Bruins 1-2, Canadiens 2-1
