They now have to win three games, the Habs need two.

That's the only thing Monday's victory meant to the Bruins Tuesday.

It's not like the wind is suddenly at their back.

"I think momentum in the playoffs kind of begins and ends with each game," said defenceman Andrew Ference. "I'm sure there's not going to be that much carry-over to Game 4, especially with two days in between. It's kind of one of those things where each team has a chance to learn from the game before, get beyond it and prepare for the next one.

"Guys are too professional. They're not moping around, I'm sure, over there, and we're not slapping each other on the back down here. I don't see a ton of carryover in any of the games."

B-stings

While noting that Patrice Bergeron has been his best forward this series, coach Claude Julien is waiting for Milan Lucic to get untracked. "He was better (in Game 3)," Julien said. "If his linemates are starting to roll, usually he follows up, or vice-versa. I'm expecting him to get even better. We're going to need him to be better if we expect to win this series."
