MONTREAL -- For Montreal Canadiens and their rabid fans, its seventh heaven. Reid Duke Jersey . In a fight for their playoff lives, the Montreal club pulled off a convincing 4-0 win against the Boston Bruins on Monday night to force a seventh and deciding game in their Stanley Cup playoff semifinal series. To hear their fanbase, a do-or-die Game 6 win against their hated rivals from Boston was never in doubt. "Incredible! The Habs are the best, did you see that win?," yelled Andrew Giannakis, breathlessly, as he emerged from the arena. "They scored the first goal and the rest is history." As with Monday night, Montreal is faced with a must-win situation in 48 hours if it wants to continue being the only Canadian team in the NHL playoffs this year. Some, likes Charles Mondon, can feel the playoff fever in the air. "I dont think there is no better place to cheer for hockey than Montreal," said Mondon, sporting a Max Pacioretty jersey as he smoked a cigarette outside the arena. "No disrespect to the rest of Canada ... here in Montreal, we bleed hockey, we breath hockey, we eat hockey, we sleep hockey." Mondon predicts a close contest on Wednesday night -- a three-goal game that could really go either way. "To be honest with you, Game 7 against Boston for round two is the best feeling in the world," Mondon said. "I think were going to beat them." Montreal and Boston is considered one of the greatest rivalry in sports, and that battle is playing out again this post-season. The Canadiens and Bruins have met a whopping 34 times in the NHL playoffs, with the Canadiens having won 24 of those series. Things have been different in recent years -- the Bruins have taken the last two series in 2009 and 2011. But fans are hoping for a reversal of fortunes, like Devon Pattemore of Yorkton, Sask., a lifelong Habs fan who finds herself in Montreal for a conference during a playoff run. Sporting a well-worn Saku Koivu jersey, she came out to watch the third period outside the Bell Centre with a few hundred other fans who peered into a restaurants giant screen from outside the eatery. "Theyre just a faster team and I just believe in them," said Pattemore, predicting a Montreal Game 7 victory. "On Wednesday night well be at a pub (in town) watching." The last time the Canadiens beat the Bruins in the playoffs was in 2008 and it was largely overshadowed by what happened once the game was done. A thrilling, emotionally charged seventh game win ended with smashed windows, tear gas and arrests. Police cars were set ablaze and stores looted when a festive celebration turned ugly. But in a city known for its hockey-related rioting, security has not been an issue so far in these playoffs. There was a heavy police presence downtown on Monday night, but few revellers made it up to the downtown core. Clusters of officers were gathered at every street corner and in front of storefronts that might be susceptible to looting. Security guards hired by some businesses milled about and there were no large gatherings on a crisp May evening. And by the end of the night, Montreal police reported no major incidents. Maxime Lagace Jersey . So true. It is one thing to create a winning football team, and another to keep it winning. Each and every week it changes. The NFL creates a unique interest of not who is "the best", but much more who is "the best this week". Jake Bischoff Jersey . According to a report from CSN Bay Area, the 49ers are bracing for 6-8 game suspension for their outside linebacker. . It certainly isnt a coincidence that Dwight Howard has scored at least 20 points in each game of the winning streak. CEDAR PARK, Texas -- Toronto Marlies coach Steve Spott didnt let his team dwell on its first loss of the Calder Cup Playoffs, a 6-3 setback against the Texas Stars in Game 2 of the Western Conference final. The Marlies had won their first eight playoff games before Game 2, but the streak was derailed as Brett Ritchie and Scott Glennie each scored twice for Texas-- which fired 52 shots at Torontos net. "We turned the music on right away," Spott said referring to the teams post-game dressing room. "I went in and said a couple things about what we knew to do better. Then I said, when we leave here, Im a believer negativity is a wasted energy, and we turned the music on and we get back to work." The Stars have mustered 102 shots through two games and Toronto goalie Drew MacIntyre has stopped 95 of 101 shots. "We gave up, in my mind, three free goals," said Spott. "Weve got to be smarter and weve got to be tighter, the margin or error this time of year is slim." Glennies second goal gave Texas a two-goal lead with less than six minutes remaining in the third period after the teams traded five goals in the second. Spott said he felt Glennies goal, which came on a rebound after Mike Hedden drove hard to the net, ended Torontos comeback effort. "I thought we had some good push back when went to the third and then we gave up a soft goal," said Spott. "A coverage issue that we got beat on and then it ends up in the back of our netathose soft goals on some of those coverages, weve got to address." Chris Muellers fifth goal of the playoffs capped the barrage to give Texas a 4-3 lead 61 seconds before the second intermission. Oscar Dansk Jersey. Before Muellers goal Glennie and Ritchie scored for Texas, while Josh Leivo and Peter Holland countered for the Marlies. Glennies goal, which gave the Stars a temporary 2-1 lead, was the first time the Marlies trailed since the regular season finale against the Rochester Americans - a streak of 512 minutes five seconds. "Not any disrespect to Texas, but I dont think we were on our game tonight and they pounced on that," Marlies defenceman T.J. Brennan said. "Theyre a good team and they took advantage of a lot things we didnt do (in the second period)." Earlier Toronto had opened the scoring on its first shot 4:22 into the game when Jerry DAmigo took advantage of a Texas turnover and beat Christopher Nilstorp over the right shoulder for his fifth goal of the playoffs. Travis Morin added an empty-net goal for the Stars while Nilstorp had 27 stops for the win. The 30-year-old Swedish netminder made his biggest stop with 13.5 seconds left in the second period on Stuart Percy. Percy had an apparent open net, but Nilstorp reached out and around a screen to make the glove save with his right hand. "Oh, (Nilstorp) played unbelievable tonight," Stars forward Mike Hedden said. "That save he made at the end of the second, I think it really lifted the guys on the bench and carried the momentum into the third period." Game 3 of the best-of-seven series is Wednesday at Torontos Ricoh Coliseum.
