things look grimm for sure, but win game 3 and put some doubts in the Rangers you never know. In saying that, moving forward to next season doesn't Galchenyuk have to play centre. I think he does and that leaves the same issue most of us discussed a year or so ago; Galchenyuk, Pleks, DD & Eller. One of them has to go and after watching the playoffs this year I know who my choice is. Not an easy choice by any means, but I think Pleks is the one that MB seriously has to look at trading in the offseason. The return would be decent and possibly be able to fill a hole or two. Thoughts??

There was also a very easy way to have avoided Kreider knocking out Price in game 1. How about drafting him instead of Leblanc, who in my opinion was very clearly not drafted for the right reasons. I still remember that draft day and hoping they'd take Kreider, pretty much knowing Leblanc was going to be picked. Hate looking back...but somewhat maddening regardless.

Not the best b-day present for me today learning Price is out. I think it's one of those cases that Kreider's crease crash was 'accidently on purpose'. Granted he was at a high speed, but this type of play is becoming pretty frequent for him and to me he definitely maximized the contact. I'm not giving up, but also having a very difficult time seeing a scenario where we can win 4 of the next 6 games without our best player. The team is resillient, but this may be a little too much to overcome. I would have been more confident is this had happened against the Bruins with Budaj's track record against them. Here's still hoping...

Not fun to watch and not ideal...but honestly it was a little expected. Rather get blown out like this than lose in OT to be honest. WAKE UP CALL!! Get Galchenyuk in next game for Prust please.

A little bounce in my step this morning without a doubt. This is far from over this post season, but was last night's victory ever sweet. Lucic probably doesn't deserve the time it takes me to type this...but what a piece of crap he his. To tarnish such an amazing long standing tradition like that is reprehensible. Not at all surprising for a character like him...but still disappointing.

Hi Everyone, Let me first say that I'm feeling a little bit like a coward at the monent, because I'm honestly not sure if I can handle watching tonight's game. I read one of CJ's posts from earlier today and agree 100% with what he had to say regarding it being so much more than a game. I know that in the big picture there are so many other things far more important than the outcome, but this is all about redemption and good versus evil for me. I so badly want this team to put the Bruins and their mostly horrible fans (commentators, sports writers etc.) in their rightful place. To say I'm nervous would be an understatement. Good luck to everyone getting through tonight and I hope beyond hope that I can come on later tonight and join everyone in their happiness (and relief). Cheers & GO HABS GO!!

You have to find a way to get at least a point in a game like this!!The Leafs have lost 3 in a row and fighting for their playoff lives at this point...not looking forward to Saturday to be honest!! So disappointing.

Exactly what I'm thinking Timo and I'm surprisingly okay with this scenario. Not interested in watching the current group get smoked in the playoffs like last year. Let's turn some of these vets into prospects & picks.

CJ...I truly believe that this team needs all of what PK can bring to the game. The games now become tougher and having him sit in the stands when the team may need a spark doesn't make any sense to me at all. I'm also a little sour on Babcock and his smug like attitude to be honest.
