Canadiens vs Bruins game 7 thread

One last obstacle on the road to the conference finals. Break out your superstitions - Game 7 is tonight! Montreal heads to Boston to poke the bear and move on to the Rangers.

Montreal "analytic fans" had their defensive prayers answered in Game 6 and Therrien responded by dressing Beaulieu. Beaulieu had an awful game and left Habs fans clamouring for the return of Douglas Murray - oh sorry this isn't Mitch Melnick's fan fiction.

The Beaulieu-Weaver pairing had a positive impact on Game 6 and there's no reason to see any lineup changes for Therrien's Habs tonight. I'm pretty sure fans would rather live and die with the future, than have a cinderblock on the back end.

Twitter seems to be a flutter with talk of Seidenberg dressing tonight. Claude Julien said, "I would be surprised" when asked if Seidenberg will be inserted into Game 7's lineup, but twitter still seems to be blowing up with fans praying for Seidenberg to dress. Maybe Joe Haggerty can write that fan fic.

What are your predictions for tonight's goal scorers? Who's due? Who's gonna be poking the bear?
