Miracle on Ice?

With Alexander Ovechkin loafing, Tomas Plekanec wins the game.

How’s José Theodore feeling about that?

Wow!

    Good it will make firing the coach much easier when he lets us lose by not trying a goalie swap

    Fearless Game 1 prediction: both teams come out with a ton of energy. Montreal scores first, ten minutes in, and doesn’t relinquish the lead in spite of some WAS golas off defensive lapses and a hairy last five minutes in the 3rd.  Halak stands on his head.  Moen turns into a wrecking ball, Gill fights, and our D hits like we’ve rarely seen this year.  For the first time in years, we’ve got a bunch of guys who understand that the playoffs are to the regular season what U.S Open tennis is to whiffleball — and Washington doesn’t.  This is gonna be a helluva lot more interesting than most people think.

    So the Habs come out and light up Theodore, shutting the Capitals down to just 20 shots.

    Of those 20, on over 15 of them we see Halak stand on his head.

    Habs win 5-1 and Martin channels Dick Irvin to motivate his squad to a six-game upset.

    And still…..Exit716 will blast the incompetence of Habs management all the way down to Frank Selke.

    Montreal did alright against Washington during the regular season with Ovechkin in the lineup.

    what do you think the chances are of Ovie getting so worked up before the game that in the first period he does something really dumb and dirty and gets tossed?   One can only hope

    Hello, I’m Jordan and I hate Julie…

  46. jbroderi says:

    He doesn’t even really coach.  his only responsibility is to make sure they don’t get penalized for too many men.  If the habs come out gunning to start, he might have to take his mind off the post-game meal and try to respond, which I am not sure he is that good at.

    I also hated when he defended Ovies dirty plays, acting like a spoiled little child.  It wasn’t that bad, it should be no suspension wha wha wha!!

    We have Grimace from the old McDonald’s commercials as a coach (did you notice how much JM wears purple?)  He’ll earn his stripes!!!

    Definitley not ;D, it’s just another fact we can rub in the face of a Leafs fan.

    I am surrounded by Leafs fan and the way they belittle the Habs like they’re any better is annoying.

  53. Big Ted says:

    Bruce Boudreau seems like he was one of those kids who whined about everything and ran to tell the teacher every time something bad happened. That guy complains about everything. At least when Brian Burke complains, it’s funny. Boudreau just comes off as being sore. If he can’t stand a little heat, he’s in the wrong profession. That’s why I’ve said over and over that a strong performance in the first game might really rattle Washington up. They don’t have thick skin at all.

  58. habsoul says:

    Although the odds are long, I am much more hopeful about this years opening series than last season’s disastrous tilt against the Bruins. With the Habs best defender (Markov) and scorer (Lang) out, Montreal could offer Boston little more than token resistance. And who knows what Gainey was thinking by not giving Halak a single start even though Price was flailing in the nets.

    This time around everyone except Metropolit and Mara is healthy and there is at least potential for success. The two advantages that Montreal has are the PK and goaltending. If they can also convert on the PP, the games will be close.

    Regardless of what happens, my expectations are under control and I’m looking forward to some top-notch hockey. 

    GO HABS!!!

  59. cautiousoptimist says:

    You know what, this is when Gainey’s pick-ups are going to bear fruit — he went out and got proven clutch guys, heart guys, character guys that will chew through steel to win.  Guys like Gionta and Moen that we didn’t have last year.  Guys like Gomez and Cammy who can elevate their games to something really truly special when it’s needed.  Gill too was born to play the PK against a team like Washington.  A healthy Mara also factored into the plans, a vocal grizzled vet who’d sooner drink molten lava than go down without a fight.  Character guys, identity guys, joining a team that sorely lacked both those things.  Last year, we weren’t nearly as good as everyone thought.  This year, we’re a far better team than anyone gives us credit for.

    The hell with the pundits and their predictions (sorry Boone).  We’ve got at least as much shot at Washington as Colorado did against the might Sharks last night.  I’d say more.

  62. AH says:

    As we saw last night, things are a lot tighter in this league than many may think. On paper the Habs should get blown out…but…..

    Wiil they win? highly unlikely, but possible. If they don’t win, all I hope is that they at least show up, COMPETE, and don’t roll over! Play hard, play tough, play big, and leave it all on the ice!, and if the CAPS win at least let them know they were in a frickin battle!

    GO HABS GO!!!!!

  66. jbroderi says:

    lets have fun with this..  If we lose, big deal.  We didn’t sit in the cellar year after year, draft in the top 5, then trade jagr and get a bunch of picks.  I just hope the Habs put in the effort we have seen glimpses of this year and then it will take care of itself. 

    One thing I hate is when you watch the previews, they won’t say anything about “the habs have to do this or that”  they just say “caps are too big and strong, not even close” 

    that may be true, but for god’s sake, Montreal was closing in on 3rd in the conference before they hit a bit of a rough patch.  If the habs had one the last 2 games 4 to 1 but still played washington, what would the experts say then. 

    I think the issue with the Habs this year is that they are a bit of an unknown.  How will they come out, will they follow the system?  Maybe, maybe not.  I just hope they play well, get lead by the guys with cup rings, and get good goaltending.  If they do all thoses things and still lose, I’ll hold my head high anyway.

    GO HABS GO!!!

  69. Big Ted says:

    Phoenix has home ice but to me they are no question the underdog when you look at the team they’re playing. It says nothing about how good a season they had, only that the team they’re playing has been the most dominant team in hockey over the past ten or so years, that they have been to the finals the past two, and that they have a lot more collective playoff experience than the Coyotes.  On the one hand, Washington may be more ready for the Habs after having seen other top seeds lose the opener, but on the other maybe there will be more doubt in their heads about their own chances. The Habs need to take the game to the Caps tonight, if anything, last night’s games show that it is possible to knock off anyone.
