Got plans? We’ve got game threads!

  • NESN is re-airing the 2011 Stanley Cup run games. The Bruins and Habs play for all the ECQF marbles tonight at 9:00PM. When we left off last night after Game #6, penalty trouble led to two 5-on-3 goals against, and Milan Lucic was ejected for a game misconduct to boot. The Canadiens have a glimmer of hope. Join us tonight for a reprise game thread for Game #7 at TD Garden. (Updated schedule on NESN.)
