Game Theory: The Montreal Canadiens fight to live another day as they skate out at the Bell Centre tonight in the fourth game of the Stanley Cup Final. Down three games to naught, the incumbent Habs will try to emulate those who went before, and turned a series around. The 1971 Canadiens, for instance: down two games to the Chicago Black Hawks, they roared back to win the Cup in seven games. Henri Richard was a member of that team, of course: that’s him here, all in a blur against New York’s Rangers at some point in the early ‘70s. (Image: Antoine Desilets, BAnQ Vieux-Montréal)
