Canadiens Push Penguins to Game 7 in NHL Playoffs; Flyers Win

The Montreal Canadiens are headed to a decisive seventh game for a second straight playoff series.

The Canadiens beat the defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins 4-3 last night to force a Game 7 in their National Hockey League series.

Montreal won a deciding seventh game in the opening round against a Washington Capitals team that had the best record in the NHL this season. The Canadiens entered the playoffs as the lowest seed among eight teams in the Eastern Conference.

The Philadelphia Flyers avoided elimination for a second straight game in their second-round series, beating the Boston Bruins 4-0 last night behind two goals by Simon Gagne.

The Flyers have won two straight games after falling behind 3-0 in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal series. Philadelphia will host Game 6 tomorrow.

The Chicago Blackhawks visit the Vancouver Canucks tonight in Game 6 of their Western Conference series. The Blackhawks lead the best-of-seven series 3-2.

At the Bell Centre in Montreal, Michael Cammalleri scored his 10th and 11th goals of the postseason for the Canadiens while goaltender Jaroslav Halak made 34 saves.

Jaroslav Spacek’s first playoff goal snapped a 2-2 tie with 6:45 left in the second period. Spacek was in the starting lineup because of an injury to Hal Gill.

The teams have alternated wins through the first six games of the series. The Penguins host Game 7 tomorrow.

At TD Garden in Boston, Flyers goaltender Michael Leighton made his first appearance since March 16. He made 14 saves over the final 35:25 to complete the shutout after starter Brian Boucher left during the second period with a lower-body injury.

Ville Leino and Scott Hartnell added goals for the Flyers, who snapped a seven-game road losing streak against Boston in the playoffs.
