Best hockey game... from a Canadiens fan perspective
Well the best game the Habs played was Game 7. Followed by Game 1.
The most exciting game the Habs won was Game 2.
The most exciting game overall (though the habs d played sloppy) was game 6. I can look back and not hate that game now because we won the series... but had we lost I'd curse its name
Games 1 (intensity and all-around play), Game 4 (strong defensive performance and Price 1st career playoff shutout), Game 6 (scoring frenzy and great battle) and Game 7 (best performance from the Habs in a crucial game) all deserve votes.
Nah, in my opinion, with its grit and intensity, it was game 4 that takes the cake. That was the only game where the Habs managed to out-Bruins the Bruins.
Don't you think they did that in game 1, when the Habs outhit the Bruins 37 to 25?
I voted for game 7 because I liked the score and the dismay it caused in Boston, where the fans were looking forward to glory but came up with fool's gold instead. They're reenacting the feeling Rumpelstiltskin had when his name was revealed.
