It would've be nice to win this series, but it felt lost after the Eller hit. I lost my heart for it anyway. 'The Goal', the icings, etc. barely got my ire up -- just seemed like par for the shitty course it seems to be too often. I haven't felt this disenfranchised since the 2008 Flyers series. I'm sure I'll be excited for next season, and hopefully MB makes some moves to get us closer to the Cup, but for now, if feel like the NHL is a Good 'Ol Boy network, and their brand of hockey is for brutes and villains. See you in September. Go Caps.

I think Prust's nasty edge in the interview today got in his head. Awesome.

I'm pretty excited about the reunited Prust/Gally² line. Maybe that can re-capture some of that early season mojo -- I see a lot of quality chances happening for that line. Also, I'm hoping that DD sees his winger pairing as a demotion, and that lights a fire under his buns. Any predictions what the PP units are going to look like?

Congrats DD! And good on GM Bergevin. I really like that he's working constantly, rather than saving contracts for the post-season as a matter of policy.

Ryan White keeping his cool -- too me, that seems huge. Kudos to MB and MT for successfully "changing the culture" in Montreal; this team wants to win the Cup.

Rene Borque: welcome back to the highlight reel. Gorges save: play of the season thus far. Therrien saying PK needs to "join" the team before he plays with it: genius. The squad looks tight -- seems like the best move to avoid a 'room' problem.
