Underdog Canadiens look to finish off Penguins

The Montreal Canadiens have no illusions about their status as underdogs in their qualifying round series against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Yet with a victory in Game 4 on Friday in Toronto, they have a chance to finish off the Penguins in the best-of-five set and advance to the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Montreal, seeded 12th and last for the Eastern Conference qualifying round series, won Game 1 in overtime, fell in Game 2, then overcame a two-goal deficit with three unanswered goals Wednesday to take Game 3 by a 4-3 score and push the fifth-seeded Penguins -- Stanley Cup winners in 2016 and 2017 -- to the brink of elimination.
