One of the best things about the playoffs is the opportunity to have a fresh start for a new season, and a chance to become a difference maker each night. After the fourth line took the headlines following the Canadiens victory in Game 1, it would be the third line, along with goaltending, that would help propel the Habs in Game 2 to take a 2-0 series lead with the series heading to Montreal. After a sub-par regular season, which saw a trip to the press box as a healthy scratch, Rene Bourque elevated his game on Friday night with a two-goal contest, including a highlight reel goal which turned out to be the game winner. He led all Montreal players with four shots on goal. Meeting with the media on Saturday, Bourque admitted that the playoffs are providing a fresh start as he wants to atone for the regular season, and now is the best time to make an impact. Coach Michel Therrien also conceded that since his late-March trip to the press box, Bourque has played more physical and shown the kind of game they expect from the forward. The power play also managed its first goal of the year against the Lightning in Game 2, and ended a scoreless run of 27 consecutive attempts without a goal. The Canadiens also showed some of the best puck movement with the man advantage that they have in quite some time. The team has put a lot of focus on the special teams over the last week in practice. The power play goal scored by David Desharnais was his first career playoff goal. Max Pacioretty earned his first power play point with an assist on the play. The line of Thomas Vanek, Desharnais and Pacioretty has combined for two goals, five points and 22 shots over the first two games of the series. Meanwhile, the Bourque, Lars Eller and Brian Gionta trio have put up four goals, seven points and 16 shots. While the Bell Centre will be rocking on Sunday night, the Habs refuse to look too far ahead, knowing all too well that a 2-0 series lead built on the road in 2011 still ended in a Game 7 overtime loss to the Bruins. Montreal had an off-ice workout on Saturday, with no line-up changes expected for Game 3.

PARIS -- Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic will miss the return leg of the Champions League quarterfinals against Chelsea because of a thigh tear. Ibrahimovic, who has scored 40 goals this season, is also likely to miss the semifinals later this month if PSG advances. The French club won the first leg 3-1. Ibrahimovic fell to the ground clutching his leg midway through the second half of Wednesdays match and then limped off. PSG said in a statement Friday that tests confirmed "the presence of a muscle lesion" at the back of Ibrahimovics right thigh. "Hes out for the weeks to come. We will have to wait for thhe doctor to analyze the results," PSG coach Laurent Blanc said.dddddddddddd "Its a muscle lesion, delicate but not irreversible. He will be back (in training) with us before too long (and) he will play before the end of the season." Ibrahimovic will likely be replaced at centre forward by Edinson Cavani, who has been unhappy playing in a role wide on the right and now has the chance to play in his preferred role for the next few games. Should PSG qualify next week, it will reach the European Cup semifinals for only the second time. The previous appearance was in 1995, when PSG was knocked out by AC Milan. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
