This should be another home game for us. There are gonna be a lot of Habs fans invading their arena.

Soft and diving Habs should win at least 1 game on the road, and finish them at home.

In game 1 we were getting in peoples way and knocking them down.

Tonight we got all lazy and started waving our sticks at guys and allowed them to skate right by.

Game 3 we need to play with some balls. Top line has gotta be way better at even strength.

Well everything going as planned, for game 3:

-Bruins will be pissed and play dirty ( i mean extra dirty!)

-We'll be playing better since we play a much more simpler game on the road

-We win this game and the serie is over IMO (they will not win 4 straight against us)

Im content with a split in the following two games. Losing both is unacceptable.

GO HABS GO!

Hopefully this goal wakes Kovy up.
He's been pretty awful in the post-season and we need him to step it up.



Hopefully that got the powerplay going as well.

I'd like to see O'Byrne in for this one.

Let's not forget we lost against Carolina after leading 2-0. We need to win this game and using some new players might be the way to go here. Go Habs Go!!

The scary thing for the bruins is that are power play has not been good in the first two games. Its been awful scoring just once on many chances we had. Its just a matter of time before it starts cliking once again.

Brisebois has played good so far, but in the mid 3rd period he was getting tired and it showed.
