The Bell Centre has a reputation of a tough place to play. 

DJ Bean joined Sports Tonight to discuss home ice advantage in the series between the Bruins and Canadiens.

Bean doesn't believe the noise of the Montreal crowd sways a referee's decision.

"The Canadiens drew 140 penalties at home this season." said Bean, "Guess how many they drew on the road… 139. It's the exact same thing."

Michael Felger disagrees with Bean.

"I still think Montreal is a tough place to play." said Felger, "I've watched enough games up there in Montreal to know the refs are influenced by the crowd up there… I think home ice is going to matter more in this series than the last one."
