MONTREAL -- The Boston Bruins just couldnt bury their chances. On a night when Boston was looking close out the series, the Bruins made a hash of numerous opportunities in a 4-0 loss to the Montreal Canadiens in Game 6 on Monday night. The Bruins hit posts and crossbars, missed open nets, blew odd-man rushes and couldnt capitalize on key chances throughout the game. Most noteworthy was a frenetic 5:11 sequence of uninterrupted play in the second period during which the Bruins penned Montreal in its own zone for more than two minutes. With the Bruins down 1-0 early in the second period, and their power play expiring, Boston took advantage of tired Habs legs to play keepaway with Montreal in the offensive zone. The Bruins peppered the net with shots, but couldnt take advantage of the unrelenting pressure. "We were all around the net, getting a lot of chances. And then they scored that second one," said Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron. "It definitely took the momentum out of us. Its about finishing the job, and we have to be a lot better." On the sequence, Carl Soderberg took two shots on Carey Price, and had another two blocked by Canadiens defenceman Mike Weaver. Brad Marchand missed the net, Jarome Iginla was stopped by Price and Kevan Miller had a chance blocked by P.K. Subban. The Bruins took a total four shots on net, had three shots blocked and missed the net once. "If we capitalize on a chance there, its a different game," said Milan Lucic, who was also denied by Price on the sequence. "Were not frustrated with what happened here today because we established some pretty good zone time." Price made 26 saves for his fourth career post-season shutout. One of his best of the evening was on Lucic during Bostons dominant spell. Lucic was fed the puck across the crease, but Price made it back in time to rob the left-winger. "Bouncing puck, I overshot it," said Lucic. "It was one of those plays that you put in nine out of 10 times. Today was that one that you didnt get. You get the same opportunity next game, you have to make sure that you bury it." Minutes later, Max Pacioretty scored his second of the playoffs on a breakaway to double the Canadiens lead. Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask left his net to intercept a stretch pass by Nathan Beaulieu on the play, but changed his mind and retreated back between the posts. The moment of uncertainty was enough for Pacioretty to fire home a shot between Rasks pads. "I kind of hesitated," said Rask, who let in four goals on 28 shots. "I didnt want to get burned. Me and Zdeno (Chara) got caught looking at each other. I thought he was going to dive, and he thought I was going to play it. Just another gift." Thomas Vanek, whos particularly successful against the Bruins with 67 points in 61 career games, added a goal at the end of the second period and another at the end of the third. The Bruins have now failed to clinch a playoff series in Game 6 on the road for the fourth time in five seasons. Game 7 goes Wednesday night in Boston. "Its one game, winner moves on," said Lucic. "You know its not going to be easy. You fought all season-long to get the home ice advantage for situations like this. "Were confident. Weve been a confident group all year long. Weve played well in big games. This is the biggest one so far throughout the year. We have to bring our best when we need it the most. Thats the most important thing."

Louisville (14-1, 2-0 ACC) was down 22-18 at halftime after shooting a woeful 22.2 percent over the first 20 minutes, but went on a 17-0 tear following the intermission and never trailed again in its first conference home game as an ACC member. Terry Rozier netted six of his 15 points during the pivotal spurt, while Jones had all but two of his points in the second half. Wayne Blackshear added 11 points for Louisville, but finished 3-of-13 from the floor. The Cardinals shot just 32.7 percent for the game, but held Clemson to a 30.8 percent success rate in a defensive slugfest. Clemson (8-6, 0-2), coming off a 24-point home loss to No. 18 North Carolina on Saturday, was led by Jaron Blossomgames 15 points. Damarcus Harrison finished with 12 in defeat. After recording a mere six field goals in 27 attempts prior to the break, the Cardinals matched that number in less than 4 1/2 minutes during their game- changing sequence. Blackshear got it started with a 3-pointer on Louisvilles initial possession and Rozier sank a go-ahead layup in transition on the Cardinals next trip down the court. Montrezl Harrell followed with a thunderous putback dunk, and another Rozier layup preceded Jones triple that staked Louisville to a 30-22 lead just 3:36 into the period. Harrell threw down another jam to cap the run and put the Cardinals up by a 35-22 count with 13:27 left to play. Clemson finally regrouped, with Harrison and Blossoomgame knocking down consecutive treys to ignite a 9-0 push that cut the margin to four.dddddddddddd Jones answered with back-to-back 3-pointers, but the Tigers countered with an 8-0 stretch to pull within 42-40 with six minutes to go. Louisville then turned it up a notch on the defensive end, as Clemson didnt make another basket until Donte Granthams layup with 41 seconds left. The Cardinals outscored the Tigers 9-2 in between, while sealing the outcome by hitting 10-of-12 foul shots in the final minute. After going 50 percent or better from the field in wins over Long Beach State and Wake Forest that preceded Wednesdays test, Louisville misfired on 11 of its first 15 attempts in this one. The Cardinals problems were compounded with Harrell, the teams second- leading scorer, on the bench for most of the first half after picking up two quick fouls on a night he was held to a season-low six points. Louisville was still able to keep it close behind its defense. However, the Tigers ended the frame on an 8-2 run, which Blossomgame and Harrison started with consecutive 3-pointers, to enter the break owning a slim 22-18 edge. Game Notes Louisville went 4-of-10 from 3-point range in the second half after a 2-of-14 display in the first ... Jones had five of the Cardinals 11 steals ... Clemson has averaged just 56.2 points over its past five games ...
