I really don't think there's a need for a "big" line-up change. I'm not ready to see Greg ****in' Stewart tossed into the fire just to get Dandeneault out and while I'm weary of Brisebois wearing down in back-to-back playoff nights, I think he has shown some relative savvy when getting hit so that's pretty encouraging.
"Hamrlik around the boards, to the young Gregory Stewart, in his first playoff game! OHHHH HE JUST GOT NAILED BY THE BIG MAN, ZDENO CHARA!!"
Give Stewart some credit. Its not like he never played a hockey game in his ****in life.
Hopefully the Habs can play a very good game tonight and take a strangle hold in this series.They didn't play a very good game last night but were lucky to come away with the win...I am really trying to stay away from posting much lately because it is just crazy around here between Habs and Bruins fans but I just came from reading on the Bruins board and I have never seen the word "hate" used that many times in my entire life... Here I was thinking that I had no one in this world that hated me but apparently I have a whole bunch of Bruins fans that hate me because I am a Habs fan and they have never met me... Some of these guys really need to relax.Its only a game guys.......I will be happy when this series is over one way or the other.
Watching TSN's 2nd intermission of Was-Phi, and they just said there is a rumor out there that would see Patrice Bergeron suit up tonight. McKenzie said it's a rumor though, so, we'll have to wait and see if this is true.
I live in the States and was in Montreal for the game last night. When I came back today, it took over an hour to get across the border in Vermont (normally it takes 20 minutes at that time of day on Sunday). The amount of fans going down to Boston was insanse. Every other car had the Habs flag or two and a car load of Habs fans. I wouldn't be suprised if the arena in Boston is 1/3 or more in favor of Montreal.
Guys, I'm anxious for tonight. I have a bad feeling. Don't know. Usually I'm wrong with thosekind of feelings though. I sure hope as hell that the Habs get me wrong and that they come up with an early lead.
One thing is sure. Some guys have yet to step up their game in that series. Markov, in my opinion, didn't deserve a star in game one, and yesterday he was awful. Komisarek can play even better as well.
Higgins, Ryder, A. Kostitsyn and Plekanec could all give more as well. Latendresse is really quiet around the boards... He should use his size to his advantage.
This is our chance tonight to unofficially end this series. Guys must take it and win. All our guys have to play their best game of this series. Tonight will be a great test, as we'll be able to see if this team has what it takes to go to the cup.
