Certainly not the best game for Carey, but I'm sure he'll be the one in nets tomorrow.

I loved that part, too. Very fun to watch!

I see this has been brought up in the comments below, and I have to agree 100% with Habfan10912, re. the Zolnierczyk hit on Lundin. I think it is sad that despite all the talks regarding headshots and dangerous plays, many (too many) players still don't get it. What I find even more revolting, is that today's players actually are aware of the repercussions of these hits, such as concussions, brain injuries, etc. A while ago, one could argue that they didn't understand the seriousness of these types of injuries, but nowadays, I think it's safe to say that players who still don't care to change their game are just plain ignorant. As for the coaches and owners, I can't read their minds, but it seems like a lot are still considering concussions and brain injuries as simple headaches. It is mind boggling to me. (I mean, just the name of it, "brain injuries", should be enough to understand that players' safety is more important than a win). I realize that it's a fast game; incidents are going to happen, and hitting will always be a part of hockey (which is fine with me, physical games and clean checks have always occured), but as I wrote, the players know better than they used to when it comes to various head injuries... So to me, there's no excuse to ignore the seriousness of it all, anymore. Sadly, I think it's going to take a serious incident before the league actually does something to get rid of that issue (and it could). Because I, for one, do not believe that giving a one, or two, or five-game suspension is enough to stop some recidivist players. Let's just face a simple fact, there have already been (nearly) career-ending injuries, serious concussion cases, broken vertebraes... But it seems like it's not enough to be really willing to make a change. I hope I'm wrong, though. Sorry about the rant and long post, but I hate to see this great sport getting uglier and uglier (or maybe I'm just noticing these kinds of plays more than I used to)! (Re-Bonjour, everyone, by the way. I haven't posted for a long while, but have kept reading this site and its comments, as well as watching my Habs! Looking forward to two big back-to-back games!! Go Habs.)

What?! Bruins better not win this game because of THAT call.

I would't put Shannahan and consistent in the same sentence. I think the fact that no one knows what to expect from him speaks for itself. He's only consistent when it comes to giving a free pass to star players, but other than that... EDIT: Nevermind, just read your post after I submitted mine.

I'd be pumped to find out too. As you said, not convinced yet, but it would be nice to have a coach with some intensity for a change. Who knows how things would turn.

Not sure what to think about that... Had he not left his feet, it would have looked clean to me, although it did look a little late. I haven't seen enough replays to tell if he targetted the head or not.

Wait, he blew a lead? Seems like he'd be the perfect fit in the Habs system! He just wants to prove it!
