This is a big one. The key(s) to victory are very simple. Two words: Carey Price. This is simply the game where the Canadiens need Price to show up. He was there in game 2. They need him there again, and more. It's Carey's time to shine.  However, there are other factors at play that will have an effect for the Canadiens. Jeff Halpern is in for Brian Gionta, probably a good move as Gionta was ineffective with his apparent bicep injury, and Halpern was very, very good in game 2. As well, Gabriel Dumont slides back in for Ryan White. Gameplan? The Habs need to stick to scoring, and shy away from the fisticuffs. Eric Gryba is back in for Ottawa - Montreal must simply treat him as any other player. Leave retribution for next year. This is not the time. Treat this game the same way they did the past couple of regular season games against Boston. Ignore the aggression, focus on beating the Senators where it counts: on the scoreboard.  90 minutes to puck drop, folks. Enjoy.
