Habs Look To Take Control of ECSF


Written By: Iain Carnegie, BBBR

Once again the energy will be palpable at the Bell Centre in Montréal as the Habs host the Bruins in game four of the ECSF.

Les Canadiens will look to take a commanding series lead with a win tonight, which would be a serious back breaker to Boston.

Expect a notable change in the Bruins play right out of the gate. They will show a much tougher presence and more physicality – something necessary in order for them to succeed. Coach Claude Julien seemed to make that clear on Tuesday night, sending his fourth line out to take the closing face off with only a couple of seconds remaining.

Michel Therrien has nothing but faith in his teams ability to handle anything Boston can throw at them.

“As a series progresses, the more intense and physical games become,” he said. “But we’ve been getting better every game.” ~ M. Therrien

The Habs held an optional skate in Brossard this morning, with several players taking the option not to skate. Seven in all decided to skip the skate: Max Pacioretty, Brian Gionta, Brendan Gallagher, Dale Weise, Lars Eller, P.K. Subban and goalie Carey Price.

Puck drops shortly after 19h30 and you can join us for our in-game live Tweeting @BleedBBR.
