They are winning the battles.... Watch the forecheck... watch the way they are forcing their d to cough up the puck, and then we are keeping the puck in at the line....

We are doing a great job of this 5 on 5... On the PP it was good in game 4; but atrocious in game 3.... However over both games we forechecked well 5 on 5.

Did you ever think the reason that the flyers have so many penalties is because the Habs always have the puck.... Thats what happens when you win the puck possession game, the other team is forced to trip, hook, hold, etc to get the puck off of you.
