The Boston Bruins will have to stave off elimination without captain Brad Marchand as he remains out of the lineup with an injury. They did manage to keep the game close without him in Game 4, falling 3-2, but close won’t be good enough to keep their season alive.

Goaltending was the story of Game 3, as Arturs Silovs made 42 saves and the Oilers had to use two goalies. That’s a familiar experience in the Connor McDavid era, and one that could see Edmonton fall well short of a Stanley Cup once again if they can’t keep the puck out of their net.

Montreal and Boston needed nearly two games to decide a winner in Game 2, but as in the first contest, it was Boston getting the win in overtime. After losing both games at home, Montreal now needs to replicate that feat at Tsongas Center in Lowell, Massachusetts to bring the series back home for Game 5.
