MONTREAL — Good morning from the Bell Centre, where the Bruins will be seeking their first win of the series tonight against the Canadiens. The Bruins are 0-26 lifetime when falling behind by two games in a series.
Given Claude Julien’s announcement yesterday that he will not discuss goalies, injuries, or lineups, it’s doubtful he’ll be providing definitive word on the following: Whether Tuukka Rask will get the nod, whether Zdeno Chara will play, or whether Tyler Seguin will dress.
For now, we’ll assume the same lineup as Game 2.
Puck drop: 7:30 p.m.
Record: Bruins 0-2, Canadiens 2-0
