The Montréal Canadiens face elimination tonight as they take to Bell Centre ice for game 6 of the ECSF against the Bruins.

The Habs haven’t been able to overcome the thundering Bruins, who have had moments of brilliant hockey over the past two games.

Montréal held an optional skate in Brossard this morning that only lasted 30 minutes. All players were present with the only exception being Carey Price. Coach Michel Therrien was also absent from the practice.

This is the most important, and biggest challenge Les Boys have faced all season, and with their 5 on 5 scoring ability taking a nose dive at the wrong time – this could prove to be their last outing for the 2013/14 campaign.

This game will require greatness from every facet of their game. Strong defence, shot blocking, big hits, and depth of scoring chances from every line.

When speaking to the press after this mornings practice, Therrien had this to say:

“I see tonight’s game as a very interesting challenge.”

There was no mention if there would be any lineup changes for Game 6.
