The Little Team That Could is heading for a seventh game for a second time!

So much for the theory of team's full of small players not being able to pull out wins in the playoffs.

Lead by two Mike Cammalleri goals the Canadiens have placed the Penguins victory plans on hold, with 3-2 sixth game in front of a euphoric Bell Centre crowd.

Missing Hal Gill, out with a leg laceration, Jaroslav Spacek was inserted into the lineup, and contributed the Canadiens third goal late in the second period.

Maxim Lapierre added what looked to be an insurance marker midway throught the third period on a great individual effort, and with Bill Guerin's late marker with Marc - Andre Fleury pulled for an extra attacker.

The Canadiens are now 4-0 when facing elimination this post season.

More to follow...

This one....never gets old!
