Monday's NHL preview

Monday's playoff game involving a Canadian team:

Boston at Montreal, 7:30 p.m. ET

Bruins—Boston (0-2) faces a must-win scenario on hostile ice in Game 3. The Bruins dropped the first two games at home and desperately need to get back into the series. They'll hope to have captain Zdeno Chara back. He missed Game 2 after being hospitalized for dehydration.

Canadiens—Montreal (2-0) returns home looking to put Boston in an even bigger hole. The Habs shocked their rivals by taking the first two games. They will try for a third straight behind the stellar play of Carey Price, who stopped 34 shots in the 3-1 win Saturday.
