The Boston Bruins wanted to head back to Montreal under similar circumstances that they did the first time around in this series and that was the case after Game 5 in Boston. After jumping out to a 4-1 lead, the Bruins held serve and have taken a 3-2 series lead, pushing the Habs to be brink of elimination as things head back to Quebec.

Boston kicked off the scoring with a Carl Soderberg goal in the first period which was followed with goals scored by Reilly Smith, Jarome Iginla and Loui Eriksson. Tuukka Rask was able to hold that lead, despite giving up two goals, and withstood the late push that the Habs threw at him.

Montreal picked up a pair of goals to make things interesting, with P.K. Subban netting a late game goal to make the score 4-2. But the Boston barrage held up over three periods and this series heads back to Montreal with the Bruins controlling everything.
