Noteable Noteables:

  • Home ice advantage has had little factor in the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens series, as both teams have split wins at home and on the road. That could explain why the Montreal Canadiens are not in panic mode after squandering their chance at home ice with a 1-0 loss in Game 4 at the Bell Centre on Thursday. Boston and Montreal now find themselves in a best of three game series. Game 4 marked the first time in six games that P.K. Subban did not register a point. The Canadiens will need their top line, and not just Subban, to contribute more to the offense if they hope to regain the momentum against Boston. The Bruins bottom three lines have been the main contributors to their success, as their top line of Krejci, Iginla, and Lucic have been held off their board in each of the Bruins wins. []
  • Anaheim Ducks goaltender Frederik Andersen left Game 3 with a lower body injury and was described as “day to day” by Ducks head coach Bruce Boudreau. Once again the biggest question entering a must win game for Anaheim is who will be in net for the Ducks. Anaheim also lost Matt Beleskey and Mathieu Perreault to lower body injuries in Game 3. Both are considered day to day. The Los Angeles Kings will  attempt to become the first home team in this series to win a game. However, they will need to get a handle on turning the puck over. Turnovers contributed to the San Jose Sharks jumping out to a 3-0 series lead, and they have led to several goals by the Ducks in this series. []
