The 2014 NHL playoffs live stream and TV coverage continues Saturday with two games on the schedule including Game 2 between the Montreal Canadiens and Boston Bruins. Boston, the favorite to win this year's Stanley Cup dropped Game 1 at home in dramatic fashion to Montreal 4-3 in overtime. Now the Bruins face an almost must win situation in Game 2 as they don't want to head to Montreal down 0-2. Today's NHL live stream action is big for both of these clubs!
According to a Sportsline report on May 3, Boston had several chances to win Game 1 as they finished the game with an incredible 51 shots on goal. However, Carey Price was up to the challenge as he saved Montreal's Game 1 win time and time again with his outstanding play. P.K. Subban scored twice for the Habs, including the game winner in overtime, but Montreal knows that Boston will be coming at them even harder this afternoon.
Boston center Patrice Bergeron knows the Bruins played sloppy in the first game. Boston had 13 turnovers in their zone compared to Montreal's three. Those kind of stats won't lead to many wins in the postseason.
''We need to do a better job boxing out, blocking shots, and disturbing their entries'' on power plays, Boston center Patrice Bergeron said, ''doing a better job on our forecheck. That's all.''
Boton finished the regular season with a 31-7-3 record at home, the best in the NHL. If they want to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals, they need to get the win today before facing a hostile Montreal crowd in Game 3.
Las Vegas odds makers have Boston listed as a big favorite for Game 2 at -220, with the over/under number set at 5.5. It will be interesting to see how the number one overall seeded Bruins respond this afternoon.
Fans can catch all of Game 2 on NBC nationally and streaming live online through NBC Sports Extra. Today's game has an early start of 12:30 p.m. ET. Will the Bruins bounce back in Game 2 or will the Canadiens take a 2-0 lead back home to Montreal?
