Pressure?

Who really thinks Habs feel a lot of pressure due to "everyone" thinking they should win?

I don't think they should nor do... (hope not) other then the usual mixed emotions you feel right before going on the ice for any game... But, I don't see why they should feel pressured because people "expect" them to "sweep" the Bruins.

I think they're too young as a team to really feel it.

It's the coaching staff's responsibility to keep them loose

they did a good job of it all year, they'll be fine

I'm sure they will, just want to know what others feel and think.

Carbo does a great job acting as a lightning rod for the rest of the team.

Pressure?

Pressure is as foreign to Price as sin was to Christ.

For Carbo, the only pressure he gets is when his wife asks him if he noticed anything new on herself.

For Burnie, the only pressure he gets is when the telephone book hits his head, by some zealous metro-Dade cop.

All I can remember all season is habs winning 3 of every 4 games (roughly). Losing mainly in shootout which doesn't even exist in the playoffs.

Having the best power play.

Having played BETTER after Huet was traded.

Price playing like a god since the Huet trade and I can honestly say, this team is going all the way, it's time for a brownman prediction now

I personally predict Calgary vs Montreal (Have predicted it even before Calgary beat SJ last night)

I have a bad feeling the Bruins will win Game 1. But then I get a good feeling because I don't think the Bruins will win another.

Exactly. They were not expected to make it to this position but the young players did not realize that. I think the youth, if properly channeled, will be a massive help to our fortunes.

As for pressure, every team faces it during the playoffs. In Montreal it is probably more but the fans seem to be behind this team. The players instead of feeling pressure may find a boost by having the seventh man on the ice.
