Dale Weise, Max Pacioretty and Daniel Briere scored for the Canadiens, who advanced to the conference finals for just the second time since winning the most recent of their NHL-record 24 Stanley Cup titles in 1993.

Jarome Iginla scored and Tuukka Rask made 15 saves for Boston.

The Bruins won the Stanley Cup in 2011 and returned to the finals last year, losing to the Chicago Blackhawks in six games. Boston finished with the best record in the regular season this year, but its road stopped against the Original Six rival in another classic playoff series.

In front of boisterous crowds on both sides of the border, the Canadiens won the 34th playoff series between the two clubs — the ninth that went the seven-game distance. And, despite giving up home-ice advantage, Montreal quieted the Boston fans quickly.

Kings 2, Ducks 1 • Utah native Trevor Lewis scored his fourth goal of the postseason, Jonathan Quick made 21 saves, and Los Angeles forced a seventh game in the Freeway Faceoff series with a victory over Anaheim in Game 6 in Los Angeles. Jake Muzzin scored an early goal for the Kings, who ended their three-game skid with another sturdy defensive effort at home.
