The Montreal Canadiens Need To Play Their Game

from Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette,

Daniel Brière says the Canadiens aren’t going to beat Boston by playing the Bruins game.

“You can’t beat the Bruins playing like the Bruins, they’re probably the best at it,” Brière said Tuesday before the Canadiens left for Boston, where they will face the Bruins in the deciding Game 7 of their best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal series Wednesday night. “We have to be smarter. We’ll have to take punches, we’ll have to take slashes. We have to get hurt at times. And that’s when we’re most successful, when we play our game.”

The Canadiens played their game Monday night in Game 6 at the Bell Centre, using their speed and skill to stave off elimination with a 4-0 victory.

“We played a helluva game,” coach Michel Therrien said Tuesday after the team held an optional practice in Brossard. “The only thing that we got to do now is reset the focus and make sure we get another good game tomorrow.”
