April 26th NHL Playoffs Open Thread

This preview brought to you by chokers.  Three chokes playoff games on the schedule tonight.  First up the Bruins head back to Montreal to try and take their third game in a row in Les Habs' own building.  They need to get their power play figured out if they want to complete the throttling of the Canadiens who were up 2 games to none at the start of this series.  Then the Choke Express roles into Philly as Brian Boucher looks to get a start AND a playoff win in the same game for the second time in this series.  It appears as though Derek Roy will be back for this game after the injury/attempted murder of Tim Connolly, and the Sabres hope to close out the Flyers after failing to do so in game 6 at home.  And finally, the creme-de-la-creme of chokitude is Game 7 between the Canucks and the Blackhawks back in Van City.  Will the Hairy Italian start? Yes, because some dude name Alain hasn't seen enough tears yet.
