When we left off last night, Game #4 had the Bruins rallying behind Michael Ryder’s two goals against his former team to beat the Canadiens 5-4 in overtime, evening the series at two games apiece (postgame wrapup.) Andrew Ference was fined by the league for an, er, equipment malfunction.

Tonight’s reprise game is the original ECQF Game #5 at TD Garden on April 23, 2011. Take a look at the preview and gamethread here. Can the Bruins make it three wins in a row to put a chokehold on Montreal?

But first on the agenda, at 6:00PM there will be a @Dafoomie Bruins v. Panthers game from November, 18, 2010 serving as a warmup.

Review the original preview and gamethread from November 18, 2010.

Good news! The schedule has been posted for the next round of NESN Bruins Encore games. We pick up again on Monday night for Game #6 back in Montreal, and look ahead to begin the Flyers series on Wednesday evening. Meanwhile, @Dafoomie will run classic games at 7:00PM on Sunday to keep us entertained. He has set games for Tuesday and Wednesday as well, and it looks like they’re set for 7:00PM, but may possibly change to 6:00PM to accomodate the NESN schedule just as he did last week.
