No need to create panic/knee-jerk threads.

Maybe this "sink or swim" situation will light a fire under them

I am sure they will win it in Montreal, Kovalev will put a show just like in Game 5 and we will finally stop talking of the Bruins and the big bad f'ing trap.

Didn't see too much trap tonight, the Bruins took a page from Toronto's book and forechecked Mtl hard with a 2-men pressure all night long. Bruins were the aggressors and they played it to a tee ... Mtl has a very hard time dealing with a hard/heavy forechecking pressure type of style. Julien has done his homework, they look like a completely different team than the one Mtl played in the regular season. They're skating harder and faster than the Habs and are pressuring all the time.

Very very tough game seven coming up, there should be a few lineup changes in store though. The thing I'm worried about is the pressure of playing a game 7 in Mtl for a relatively young club, and yes Price fanboys, he's included in that (8 goals in the last 2 combined third periods).

Interesting interview on CBC during the first intermission, the reporter asked a Bruins player about how well Price was playing (1-0 Mtl at the time), he responded by saying they feel confident he can be solved, well 4 more third period goals later ...

The Habs will win the series if the PP gets going, if there are no PP goals in game 7 they will lose.

OK.

After downing a 40 oz my head is clearer.

Koivu's strong play has affected Kovalev. With Saku leading the team and having a strong game, Kovy was lost and felt no sense of identity. Trying to be the general when all he had to do was be a soldier. After this poor showing, he's got something to prove the next game but sadly his envy will only result in another mediocre performance.

Price had a decent game and I hope Carbo lets him know. There's only so much you can do when your defense is leaving you alone...again.

Much stronger performance from Plekanec and Higgins reminded me tonight why he's my favorite player. Going back to wing allowed him to fully drive deep without worrying about back-checking. Hopefully this will carry over in the next game.

I think what this series boils down to is momentum control. How you regulate and respond to the opposing team's momentum and how to build on yours. 4 goals in the third period is nothing short of a collapse. They were running around out of position, panicking and made terrible decisions with the puck.

Now they have a couple of days before the final dance. They can clear they're heads to prepare for a fight. This team has responded before when they were left for dead and if they somehow turn the tides and stop this Boston train heading into Montreal, this would constitute as an even bigger character display than the one the Bruins have showed.

I WILL watch the next game simply because it could be the final game that the Habs play this season and I don't want to miss it..as bad as it potentially becomes. This team has been great and this season's been great, I'll support the team to the end.

Not enough effort,

Our big players arent producing,

Stupid Mistakes,

No PP.

Pretty much every possible thing that we can do to lose, we're doing. Its simple, Boston is playing their hearts out, we are not. Very simple.

All I know is that if the Habs lose Monday, there will be a disaster around the Bell Centre.

Then, if Koivu's play affect Kovalev that much, why does Kovy had his second best season in career

Even maybe his best because he didn't play with Jagr and Mario.

Kovalev played a bad game, but he'll rebound just like he rebounded after game 4 to put on a show in game 5.

Rational. According to some fans we have already lost. And calling them on saying that is "confrontational"

I was talking about this game in particular. Seems like Koivu and Kovalev are indirectly proportional to each other. One's success is the other's weakness.

Apparently someone has switched your team with this year's Senators, unfortunately for Ottawa we didn't get the Habs in return.

We need to stop observing and the Habs will act normally again, this should rationally explain why:
