Things are not looking good folks. Lunqvist is playing out of his mind. Even with Price ("The greatest goalie in the world" lol) I'd still give the edge to the Rangers. Habs were able to outskate the Bruins, but can't do so against this incarnation of the Rags. St Louis has finally found his groove and Nash is doing his job of putting the puck in the back of the net. I don't think most observers think the Kreider incident had intent. Just a hockey play gone bad. Obviously, most would be crying foul if it were their #1 goalie getting injured, but all hockey fans are biased toward their team. (fan=fanatic). I am surprised they'd throw a kid in there, regardless of his non-NHL success. Budaj must not have much playoff experience. Rangers learned a lot from the Bruins-Habs series. Particularly that if you take away Subban on the PP it becomes mostly ineffective. Also, to attack him with speed and numbers in 5-5 play. I wonder what Subban will demand as far as salary in his next contract?

And a classic PK flop

pretty sure you mean rouge, blanc et bleu or is the order bleu, blanc, et rouge? haha, just trolling here a bit. It's just that the team takes its French heritage so seriously (from an outside perspective, coaching controversy, singing part of the anthem in "French") I wondered if there was any rift within the fanbase between those that do and don't speak Quebecois.

Can you be a Canadien fan and not speak Quebecois? (Don't call it French...it offends France, lol)

I've been really satisfied with the lack of filth (dirty hits or diving/extreme embellishment) in this series. I feel like both fanbases should be able to appreciate that. Habs fans might not like that the Bruins have decided that clogging the neutral zone is the only way to win. In Game 3 the neutral zone was largely a freeway, which certainly favors the Habs. Even Bruins counterattacks of Game 4 looked more measured and methodical since one well-timed poke check results in a significantly more dangerous Habs-oddman rush the other direction or a stretch pass to open up a breakaway. If the Habs can't find away through the muck the bruins are creating of the neutral zone, I think they'll have a hard time winning. It's not as exciting hockey and I wouldn't blame anyone for complaining about it. However, the Habs have done an amazing job blocking shots which gets old and boring in its own right from a Bruins fan's perspective. (Sure that isn't John Tortarella behind your bench?)

that's some serious praise, lol. I would probably take Lunqvist, Quick, Varlomov, or Rask before him, sorry. Rask benefits from a terrific understanding between him and the 5-man defensive system of the Bruins, but he's still pretty darn good, incredibly athletic. With the right team and play in front of him Price can be successful of course, as the Olympics showed. that Canada team was ridiculously stacked. I mean Subban was the 7th or 8th Dman. that should tell you something

There is a difference between wearing someone down and hurting them, bruising the body and elbowing someone in the head. Occasionally a single body-body-boards hit can cause significant enough trauma to cause immediate, acute injury, but that's pretty darn rare. Honestly, if the Bruins simply wanted people hurt it wouldn't take too long to accomplish. You would just Matt Cooke them in the open ice from the side

haha...no ever says that Bruins are entirely innocent on that front , but to be so blind to an integral part of the Habs strategy is just sad really. I call it a strategy because it happens so systematically, not a single player with that tendency (Marchand). Habs are a more complete team in better overall health than the Wings, but I don't think Price is as good as his stats have made him out to be. A few plays with the Bruins elevating pucks a bit better and this series is 2-0 Bs. He's good, but not elite IMO. Subban is probably the most offensively dynamic player on the ice besides Patches and the Bruins will have to be better about blocking his shooting lanes
