From The Montreal Gazette

The Canadiens defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins 5-2 in Game 7 of their NHL Eastern Conference semifinal on Wednesday night — moving the Canadiens into the conference final for the first time since 1993, last time the Canadiens won the Stanley Cup.

The Canadiens will meet the winner of the semifinal between Philadelphia Flyers and Boston Bruins. The Bruins lead the best-of-seven series 3-2, with Game 6 on Wednesday night.

The Canadiens ran up a 4-0 lead and then relied on goaltender Jaroslav Halak to weather a furious comeback by the Penguins.

The Canadiens shocked the standing-room-only crowd of 17,132 at Mellon Arena by taking a 1-0 lead after only 32 seconds. Canadiens forward Brian Gionta scored his sixth goal of the playoffs on a power play when he deflected a backhand shot by rookie defenceman P.K. Subban. Gionta added an insurance goal on a power play in the third period.
