You know, I think the Habs effort is underrated by everyone because everybody was downed by the mortuary atmosphere in Chicago. We play half our games at home which is very raucous and loud, and a lot of our away games in places like Toronto, Boston, Ottawa....

All and all, they played great, and deserved the win. The reason the Habs didn't win is two-fold, one has a name: Nikolai Khabibulin. The other one, a secondary one, is a very aggresive PK that wouldn't let point men go in motion for slap shots.

Other than that we owned them. They're not a one line team, they're a 2/3 of a line team. Havlat & Handzus, Vrbata is only there to fill the hole.

We deserved the win, we didn't get it. It happens.
