Canadiens regroup for Game 4

The Canadiens will look to get back on track in Game 4 on Tuesday night after Sunday’s 2-1 overtime loss to the Bruins. 

Despite holding a 2-1 series lead, the Canadiens’ offence has been held in check for most of the last two games, especially the team’s top line of Alex Kovalev, Tomas Plekanec and Andrei Kostitsyn.

The power play is also sputtering after three games, scoring only one goal in 18 opportunities.

Guy Carbonneau is expected to make some lineup changes for Game 4, with either Francis Bouillon or Ryan O’Byrne – or both of them – being inserted into the lineup. 

Here’s a look at what’s being said about Tuesday’s game:

• Dave Stubbs: Plekanec searches for goals, grit
• Stubbs: Steely Price keeps his cool in playoff heat
• Pat Hickey: Power outage
• Hickey: Look for O’Byrne to play tonight
• Hickey: Lucic is big, tough and scary
• MIke Boone: Once upon a time, only the players wore the Tricolore
• The Gazette’s Alan Hustak:Hockey bragging rights? The bling’s the thing
• The Gazette’s Mike King: Flag firm all aflutter over Habs’ success
