The third game in two NHL playoff series is being played tonight with Montreal hosting Boston and Chicago playing at Minnesota.

North of the border the Canadiens are hosting the Bruins in the first of two games on their ice. In Boston the teams split the first two games with Montreal winning Game 1 in overtime 4-3 and Boston coming back for a 5-3 win in Game 2. The fourth game will be played Thursday night in Montreal.

For the Wild and Blackhawks it's Game 3 in Saint Paul and the home standing Wild need a win, badly. The Wild dropped the first two games of the series in Chicago 5-2 and 4-1 and face the prospect of going down 0-3 in the series. The next game will take place Friday night in Minnesota.
