Any over/unders on how many games Matt Cooke gets today. My guess is no more than 5-7 when he probably should get 20 or more given his long history of this sort of thing. Oh well, if he was a Bruin the league would just thank him for playing with intensity and chalk the whole thing up to a "hockey play".

Worst. Refereeing. Ever. The NHL should ban those guys from the league. Until the league cleans up completely incompetatnt refereeing like that it is destined to remain a minor league compared to MLB, the NFL and the NBA. Any Habs fan that does the ole ole chant with more than 15 seconds left in the third period and less than at least a two goal lead should be ejected from the building. The comeback was so predictable once the morons started singing. Just. Plain. Stupid. I mean really, why would you egg the other team on? Great win for the Habs. So great to see the lines that were so quiet all year playing such a gigantic role in the play-offs. Lets hope they can keep it up in the next round.

Lucic got fined $5,000 for that cowardly spear in the privates from behind? I suppose the league apologized for the fine and promised to drop by and give him a massage with a happy ending once the media wasn't paying attention any more. Does the league office have no shame? Do they have any interest whatsoever in maintaining even a shred of credibility? I guess the answer is no. What is really, really a shame is that such a great sport is being ruined by the gong show being run by Mr. (ptui) Bettman.

Price was full value in OT. Hard to blame him for most of the other goals.

What did the Habs give up to get Weise? Whatever it was, I think the Habs won that trade.

Headline: Waiver Wire Pick-up's Brain Cramp Costs Habs Regulation Win. Do we see Weaver in a Habs uniform again, ever? And if we do, why?

No worries, he'll be suspended again after tonight. He is not a Bruin you know.

Actually two words, bad coaching.

I say no to Gionta at any price, yes to Markov but max two years and not at a premium price, okay to Weaver if he is cheap, and no to Murray. You give PK the farm and then run Therrien out of town. PK and the other youngsters are the future of this club, Therrien is not. Therrien cannot relate to or develop young players, so he has to go.
