Faced with the prospect of winning or going home, your Montreal Canadiens went 5-1 a year ago.
That was then.
They have to beat the Bruins at the Bell Centre to stay alive. And if they need an inspirational example, the Lightning staved off elimination on home ice last night.
A good omen: The Montreal Symphony Orchestra Brass Quintet is playing the national anthems before Game 6.
The Canadiens have never lost a game preceded by the MSO Five.
