If you get a chance — though I’m sure you are already tuning in — listen to Rob Bradford on The Big Show as he simultaneously defends and yet manages to try and throw Claude Julien under the bus. A masterwork of double speak, really.

As we get closer to the start of Game 7, an interesting look from Michael Farber at how the Canadiens have developed a habit of winning elimination games (a hint: it has a lot to do with Carey Price).

Countdown to Game 7, 3 p.m.: Downtown Montreal to be closed off 04.27.11 at 3:08 pm ET

The Canadian Press is reporting that the Montreal police will be closing a large stretch of downtown Montreal during Game 7 on Wednesday.

“The police won’t tolerate any mischief or indiscipline from people or fans wanting to celebrate downtown,” Chief Inspector Sylvain Lemay said.

About a half-mile of the downtown will be closed off in an attempt to slow down the rioting that has become almost an annual happening in the city following a Canadiens series. In May of 2010, police were forced to use tear gas to combat fans after Montreal’s Game 7 win over the Penguins. Stores were looted and bottles were thrown at police in the aftermath of the win, leading to 41 arrests.
