Same kind of scenario in 1993.
I see a few differences in the teams. We had great leadership in 93, and nice size. I like our defence better now.. but ... I'm not sure about the character on this team.

We were down 2-0 in 93.. but they team was playing hard through the first two losses.

One can only hope.

I probably got it wrong most likely. I'll find out soon and post it here.

Go Habs Go!

No I wasn't implying we lost both game #2 on overtime goals. It was the fact we were down 2 games to 0 before we showed the cocky nords who the better team was. Just like we'll show the Broonies they're place in history on our way to the Stanley cup.

2003/04: 82 41 30 7 4 93 208 192

We scored 116 more goals and had 88 more against!!!

uuummmmm where do you get to say who was implying what. I was the one that posted the thing about game 2. Not you.

And I was implying that we lost game 2 in o.t because i was under the assumption that it was game 2 that we lost in o.t and not game 1. I am trying to find out the truth but i can't find it anywhere..........yet

There are a couple of instances in which the higher seeded team was up 2-0 and ended up winning the series.

In any case, both teams have been so bad that anything can happen.
I can tell you right now he is wrong. In 93 we were the lower seed.

A team's a team oh little one. The past is what builds the future and we have every right to brag about our team's accomplishements but I can understand your anger as a leafs fan because you may not have as many trophies, great goalies, or best captains in history. I'm sorry for the pain you go through every day as a laffs fan

That stat is total bull. It's been done a few times by lower seeded teams in the openign round. Here goes:
2001-The 7th seed Kings (92) trailed 2-0 against the 2nd seed Wings (111) and won the next four.
1993-Montreal (102) did the same as the Kings in '01, but to the Nords (104). ALSO the div. ranked 3rd Leafs (99) did it to the 2nd place Wings (103) in 7 games.
From 1974 to 1979, opening round series could not be determined that way, so as for Conf. QF.
1978-The Leafs (92) came back to win it in 7 like in '93 but this time against the Islanders (111).
1975-The Islanders (88) came back in fact from 3-0 to beat the Penguins (89).
1972-St. Louis (67) managed to come back and win in 7 against Minnesota (86).
1968-Minnesota (69) managed to come back off of Los Angeles (72) to win their series in 7 games.
And that's since Expansion. All these teams had to contend with losing the first two on opposition ice. It's still very possible. Though we may not win it still, the possibility of a comeback from down 2-0 to tie it can be done especially with how we've played at home this year. And winning tonight is just the first step.

And how long has it been since YOUR team last won the Stanley Cup? Oh right. You can't look back that far even if you wanted to.
