Thanks all for talking to me as I dipped my toes in the water here. It was a great series, and to watch the respect shown by the teams at the handshake line was pure class. Toker stood on his head and has the makings of a star! I'll continue reading and lurking, because I watch enough Habs games in NYC,;and I'll be rooting for them in all but 3 and 7 (If necessary).

I have some family over there, and I took at Irish at University. (NYU Irish Studies Minor). I adopted Sligo as it appears I've had some cousins play for them!

Despite rooting for opposite sides of this matchup, I hope y'all enjoy the game tonight and are looking forward to it as much as I am. May the best team win (and show the W.C. that our hockey out here is just as entertaining as them). This blog has been added to my favorites and become must read in the morning at work. I also hope that you all are as distracted at work today as I am because I'd like to think I'm not the only one.

Because I read all websites where I can find passion for the greatest game on earth.

What a series this has been. I love watching an Original Six matchup, and have been enjoying reading the liveblogs even before the playoffs. (Although I am a Rangers fan, I have multiple friends who root for the Canadiens.) This series has actually had everything you want:Hard hitting, overtime, a little chippiness, unpredictability, and a wonderful atmosphere every game. For the record, Moore gets 2, Dorsett probably gets 1, Borque likely a fine. (Or they cancel out Dorsett/Borque). I'm ok with Dorsett getting a game, because frankly I think Fast is a tougher matchup for you guys. Diaz is essentially a wash for Moore, not really concerned about that. I expected the Habs to win tonight (Not expecting 3 wins in a row at the Bell Centre), but it's going to be a heck of a lot tougher on Garden ice. If the stripes can kick out aggressive play towards the goalie (on our end, looking at Zuc, not as much the Nash play as he was ridden into the net on a goal scoring attempt with great defense) and the diving team tryouts (P.K. on the Pouilet trip and Plekanec taking a dumb penalty) this next game could be a classic. Despite the ire this will draw - #LGR!
