- Comment on Habs hold Sunday practice without Price after Game 1 loss to Rangers (2014-05-18 20:03:57)
It's not an enforcer issue. It's an attempt to injure. Kreider's technique is to appear to be out of control then violently smash the goalie while crashing himself, without having been touched by anyone on the defense. The goalies end up in trouble but Kreider himself is none the worse for wear. He used the same technique against both Price and Fleury. The refs are so stunned by the collision, by the time it occurs to them to call a penalty it's too late. Habs will deal with this. Wait and see.

Kreider has a history of running goalies. He did it to Fleury in the last series. No team goes into a series against the Habs without thoughts of taking out Price in their minds. This needs to be dealt with on the ice.

Like the 1st two series, Price n PK should be the difference. If that's what happens, Habs will win.
- Comment on Rangers, Habs meet in playoffs for first time since 1996 (2014-05-16 13:33:25)
If I had to choose between playing a series against the Lightning or the Rangers, I'd choose the Rangers. And the Habs swept the Lightning. So I like the Habs chances against the Rangers. But they still have to do it on the ice. American teams have won the last 19 Stanley Cups in row. It's Canada's turn.

Great team victory for the Habs. Savour the sweetness of triumph over the wretched Bruins. Then take a bite out of the Big Apple.

Speaking of pose, the pic heading this story of Carey riding a bear with a Habs logo on his hat, is a classic.

The speed of play in a Habs / Rangers series might be too fast for real time viewing.

Now it's happening to Iginla. Lucic has always been a deadbeat.

Great team victory for the Canadiens. Take the day to savour the sweetness of triumph over the Bruins disrespect. Then get ready for the Broadway Blue Shirts.
