MONTREAL — Good morning from the Bell Centre, where the Bruins will look to shake the Canadiens’ hands after tonight’s game. Worth noting, of course, that the Bruins failed in four previous attempts against the Flyers. Just in case you forgot.
The Canadiens might be without David Desharnais. The pint-sized forward energized the second line in Game 5. If Desharnais can’t go, Benoit Pouliot would go back in. We’ll wait until warmups to post the expected Montreal lineup.
Puck drop: 7 p.m.
Record: Bruins 3-2, Canadiens 2-3
