Game 7 will decide Bruins and Canadiens again


The Boston Bruins crowd has been hostile to Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban (right in photo), booing him every time he touches the puck. And he can’t wait to get back to Boston. “That’s what playoffs is all about, man,” Subban said after the Canadiens won Game 6 to force the series back to Boston’s TD Garden for a decisive seventh game. “I hope their crowd is louder. … I hope it gets nasty, I hope it gets dirty.” The Bruins and Canadiens will play tonight ( 4 p.m., NBC Sports) in Game 7 of their Eastern Conference semifinal, with the winner moving just one step from the Stanley Cup finals. It is the ninth time the two Original Six rivals have met in a seventh game, with the Bruins taking the most recent one in 2011 on their way to the NHL championship. – AP
