We had the puck for most of the game, they simply were more opportunist.
Their team is slow, our guys can control the pace of the game and fly around them. As others said, their D is also very questionable and despite all the toughness they are trying to sell, they have lots of soft forwards (who appears to be their top 6)
And really is anyone scared of James Reimer? When the kid experience a playoff game in montreal we'll show what he's made of. Remember how Chara played at his worst in the Bell Centre when getting booed. Sure the same with happen to Reimer.
Bring me the Leafs to shut these kids down. 1st playoff series in almost 10 years and they are already getting way too cocky
I'm sure there are some disillusioned leaf fans who believe that we'll walk all over the Habs...but there's definitely enough of us who know it would be a very tough serious against the Habs...Price generally rises to the occasion..as does Subban..that being said...there are 2 main reasons even the realistic leaf fans want the Leafs to play the Habs:
1. Original 6 matchup and first time since 79...every game would likely have an even number of Habs/Leafs fans which would be unreal! And I think many leafs fans have close friends who are hab fans and vice versa...the trash talk/ball breaking would be awesome!
2. Out of the other possible matchups of Boston or Washington..most fans do think we'd have a better shot vs Montreal...doesn't mean the Habs suck and we'll walk over them...it just seems like we would match up better against them then the Bruins or Caps.
