wow. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one that observed those things. I defended bourque the whole way thru. I'm amazed at the guys willing to eat crow here. my hat's off to u! most people will not admit to a mistake.

well put. plus I'd rather they hadn't let all the other crap go by beforehand. it makes these calls appear arbitrary.

I remember the series against Ottawa very differently. I remember the habs dominating games until price let in some weak goals in the 3rd period of each game. I remember the habs getting 37 sog in 1 period, a hab record, & losing the game. the diff this series with tb has been price who hasn't, for the most part, let in cheap goals (ok, he let in 2 softies last nite). the reffing this series was more equitable between the 2 teams. it wasn't good but it wasn't completely negligent like it was last yr. & that makes a difference. the habs are a bit more balanced this yr. too. nice to see that max's 1st playoff goal was the series winner! he & dd have been hustling every game. vanek has been a floater. what gives with him? galchenyuk in. briere out. weise & bournival have been hustling their backsides off. weise worked hard to set up briere last nite too. if briere doesn't sit, then it'll be bournival. geez. nice to have some depth.

how many times did I write this season that you don't trade bourque or eller? eller because he's talented, big & young. bourque because he's big, fast & he was a stud in last yr's playoffs too. people are so impatient if a player has a slump. it's prob too much to expect that everyone will remember their playoff performances again next season but the habs mgmt. will. having 2 power fwds on the same line creates fits for the tb dmen. with max, we have 3 power fwds with elite speed. max's line had plenty of chances too. they'll be burying their share of them in the future. only vanek looked a bit sluggish last nite. pleks & Gallagher are also benefitting from having prust on their wing. on Gallagher's goal I thought mt would be crapping himself inside when pk took the puck in deep. that's what pk can do for a team & he should be allowed to. most nhl teams don't have a dman that can match pk (never mind pk + markov). I wonder how much longer weaver & bouillon can take the pounding they're getting. I'd prob sit briere when galchenyuk gets back.

tb shouldn't have even been in the last game with only 16 reg sog. if we get some decent goaltending tonite, we'll win. someone tell price to go screw his nerves & stop the puck. fingers crossed so the refs don't job us like they did vs. Ottawa last yr..

georges was caught out of position a few times too & it cost us. subban played a much better game than georges or markov. emelin looks like he's back to his old self again. price better get rid of his nerves & stop the puck from here on in. b4 the beginning of the game he stood on the ice like he was facing a firing squad. bourque was a stud last yr against Ottawa too. he's big, has speed & can shoot. those guys are hard to come by. ditto for eller. our skaters get an a+ grade from me. what was nice for me about this game was that the refs weren't totally incompetent - aside from 2 stupid calls. they didn't look like they were deliberately trying to throw the game for a change.

4 goals. 16 shots. price has been crap again. it should be 4-0 when the other team only gets 16 sog.

what's with price? he's crapping the bed again. this game has been all mtl.. we have to work for our goals. tb gets them easy. too easy just like Ottawa did last yr.. we might as well play with 6 skaters. why weaver pinches on that last one is beyond me. Gallagher then fails to cover. ugh. this shouldn't be close.

tb has 2 goals on 11 shots. looks like last yr's Ottawa series. at least we came back quickly. we can expect more bs ref calls. we need to take better advantage of our opportunities. this has been a 1-sided game in all but the score.
