SCOREBOARD
Monday, April 21
Boston at Montreal (7 p.m. EDT). The eighth-seeded Bruins, who lost all 20 previous best-of-seven series in which they trailed 3-1, will try to complete their bid to eliminate the top-seeded Canadiens.

STARS
Saturday
- Phil Kessel and Marco Sturm, Bruins. Sturm scored with 2:37 left and Kessel added two goals to lead Boston to a 5-4 victory over Montreal.
-Jose Theodore, Avalanche, stopped 35 shots in Colorado's 2-1 win over Minnesota.

ALL TIED UP
Boston overcame three deficits to beat the Canadiens 5-4 Saturday night and force a seventh game in Montreal. The Bruins still have a chance to win a playoff series for the first time in nine years and complete an improbable comeback after they began the series seeded eighth in the Eastern Conference. The Bruins are 0-20 in series they trailed 3-1.

ROCKY MOUNTAIN HIGH
Colorado withstood another onslaught from the relentless Minnesota Wild for a series-clinching 2-1 win Saturday night. The Avalanche took the series in six games. Minnesota held a lead in the series for only 4 minutes, 31 seconds out of a possible 384:23

KNUBLE OUT
Philadelphia Flyers right wing Mike Knuble sustained a partial tear of his left hamstring in Saturday's Game 5 3-2 loss to Washington and is out for the rest of the series. Knuble, who scored the winning goal in double overtime in Game 4, tumbled to the ice in a moment of indecision over whether to try to block a shot late in the second period.

SPEAKING
``We've battled and battled and battled and got ourselves back in this position. We still have more work to do.'' - Boston goalie Tim Thomas after the Bruins' 5-4 win over Montreal on Saturday. The Bruins need just one more win to take a series that they trailed 3-1.
