Can the Habs Hold on to Force Game 7?

Canadiens vs Lightning in Game 6 of their heated NHL Playoff series and the puck drops at 23:30 (GMT).

The Tampa Bay Lightning are set to host the Montreal Canadiens in Game 6 of their best-of-7 series, and they have yet another chance to knock the Habs out. The Lightning went up 3-0 in the series before the Canadiens got back in the game and won two-straight and are within one win of forcing Game 7 and a shot at the Eastern Conference Finals.

The Canadiens had the same advantage in their previous series against the Ottawa Senators. The Habs went up 3-0 and Ottawa made a comeback before they lost in Game 6. This is exactly what the Lightning hope will happen after the game tonight so they can focus on the next round against either the Capitals or the Rangers, depending on which team wins their Game 7 matchup tomorrow night. “We were up 3-0 and they found a way. These guys did the same thing in round one," related Lightning Captain Steven Stamkos. "They were up 3-0, Ottawa won two games, and they took care of business in Game 6. Hopefully we can do the same," he added.

No matter what the win/loss record is between the two teams, they will both be playing to win tonight. Carey Price, the Canadiens star goaltender is prepared for an action-packed 3 periods of play and the Habs hope he can be the wall in the net that they have grown used to.
