My close friend also has season seats in 118. Do you know a Mike Z? Big dude. His family has had season seats there for a couple decades in both buildings.

My buddy bought two tickets in the reds, corner, about half way up, Habs shoot twice, for game 3 for $225 a piece. Face value from canadiens.com Sold them on Stubhub for $1000 for the pair.

Yup. He needs to get his mojo going. The Prust-Plekanec-Gallagher line needs to get the puck down low, in the corner, behind the net, force their way to the front and jam it in. I hope to see many instances of scrums where Gallagher is jabbing away at the puck in Lindback's pads.

In playoffs past there has been such turmoil in front of Price that you couldn't completely fault him. There were some soft goals that he should have stopped but overall the team just sucked in front of him, causing his confidence to just completely drop. The one year the club had some success in the playoffs, Price was still young as hell, had an up and down year, and lost his starting job. Halak came in and played the best stretch of hockey he ever has and probably ever will. The defence that year also rounded into from quite nicely. Like I said, last year in the playoffs was a complete joke. it was a circus in front of Price. He played well and lost to Boston in game 7 a few years ago. Boston went on and won the cup, made it back to the finals and has been one of the best teams in the NHL the last three years. In the first playoff game this year, Price was a tad shaky, but some of those goals were ridiculous again. A spin-around slap shot right in the slot, Stamkos tap in... Price is now mature, the team in front of him is better and he has looked very good this season. There hasn't been more than a game or two where Price has looked shaky all season. He won an Olympic gold medal and posted like a .950% save percentage in the process. I think we can forget about game one of this series. The Habs will eliminate a few of those crazy, wide open scoring chances and Price will be locked in. If not, Price is now old enough, has enough experience and the team is healthy enough for him to be fairly criticized.

Teams might be looser in mood but the game itself should be much tighter. There should be much less turnovers and wide open chances. IMO. I'd like to see the Habs play a strong defensive game in front of Price. I don't care if they allow a lot of shots, just cut down on the point blank shots in prime scoring areas, 2 on 1 and breakaways.

We all know the Bruins have the worst commentator in professional sports, Jack Edwards. I just heard a guy who covers the Avalanche go beyond crazy when Colorado scored, you hear the same crap in baseball for the Yankees and White Socks. How can anyone in those cities listen to that crap? It's terrible! It's fine for the announcer to get a bit more excited when his team scores but to be blatantly biased and even go as far to insult the other team is unacceptable, IMO. It's such trash, I would never listen to that and would be embarrassed if I were a fan of those teams. Sorry if this offends anyone, but if I had a couple beers in me and saw Jack Edwards walking the halls at the Centre Bell, saw that no security was around, I'd give him a quick uppercut to the chin.

I was just happy to get Diaz off the roster, period. Nothing personal against him but the makeup of the defence as a whole was wrong. He was simply too small and too soft. Weise has turned out to be a great bonus!
