The remarkable showing of the Canadiens is very laudable since no team has done it since the current playoffs format was adopted in 1994.
The Canadiens, who trailed the series 3-2 before winning 4-3 in Game 6, silenced the standing room crowd of 17,132 in the last game played at
49-year-old Mellon Arena by seizing a 1-0 lead on a power-play goal only 32 seconds into the game.
The Canadiens then built it to 4-0 with barely 25 minutes gone.
To successfully defeat the Penguins, the Canadiens handcuffed the top players of the Penguins lead by Crosby.
Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik is sad with their loss but praised the outstanding performance of the Canadiens who he said deserve to get all the credits and accolades that it deserve.
With their remarkable NHL playoffs run, the Canadiens said they are now ready to face anyone in NHL playoffs and take the Stanley Cup crown this year.
Fans of professional hockey should make it a habit to watch the exciting NHL playoffs live by getting cheap NHL tickets.
