The B's took advantage of what was given to them. They have a great team and are very well coached. But we have a pretty good team as well and a break here or there tonight and we could have had this one. I liked how we managed to create some chances coming down the stretch despite the B's playing their New Jerseyesque shutdown style.

It was a good one. The game was called good (not sure why people ar crying about that). Both teams had some big injuries.

Lee was bad, real bad, but the deficit he left us with was overcomable, really overcomable.

But this team is really bad at the fundamentals of PLAY-OFF hockey. This scares me, a lot.

Chris Lee heard a big noise and saw a guy lying down and thats the ball game.

-Disgraceful effort by Kovalev

-Lang line is on the ice for 20 seconds, creates 2 great chances and Thomas makes a miraculous save. Who does Carbo put on for the offensive zone faceoff? Lapierre and Kostopoulos of course.

Why did we dump the puck intentionally from our blueline for icing. Does not compute.

Did somebody mention Tim Thomas was the difference?

Technically, the worst starting goalie in the NHL, and by a wide margin.

I loved that on-his-back pirouette he did. Wow. What an athlete.

Every goalie gets a little bit lucky, but that sieve *depends* on it.

You're asking for it....AKost didn't intent to injure Ward, so it should not have been 5 minutes.

Wouldn't mind Lecavalier right now, but I wouldn't mind our first line either... I think it would make a world of Difference.

Maybe Carbo will steal some info on Julien's trap system at the all star game.

Maybe not... That's a mistake, but you can't honestly say the Refs gave this to the Bruins.

I think if Price played in the Bruins system, he'd have astronomical numbers too. But Thomas is still>Halak. That wasn't quite the difference though, because we had a power outage with the PP and the overall offense. They shut us down, but we can't do the same to them. Refs were terrible at times, but we had a whole period to come from behind. This wasn't the Carolina debacle of a game.

Oh well, this might be a new inferiority complex to the Bruins but let's just focus on another season of 100+ points and let the chips fall where they may. Remember, Boston struggled with us then pushed us to 7 in the playoffs. There's no reason we can't do the same. But right now, Boston is on another level, with the Detroits and San Joses of this world. Let's just see where we fit with the Washingtons, Calgarys, Phillys and New Jerseys, aka the Second Tier good teams. Hopefully this refocuses our attention and we cream the Preds and Sens and go into the all-star break on a high note.

Look Thomas played great and really so did Halak so what did this game come down to?

The Refs and a full 2 minutes of 5 on 3.
The Games was played right there in those 2 minutes.

Frustrated with the loss, but the better team won the game. There's a reason Boston is now 12 points ahead of Montreal now.

Everybody but Kovalev was skating hard out there. I missed the 2nd period, so I don't know how he played in the 2nd, but in the 3rd period, Kovalev just stopped trying. Though Boston was trying to shut him down, there were plays where he just go for the puck when it was 5-6 feet in front of him. Can't be doing that in the biggest game of the season (so far -- in the regular season).

The 9-1-1 in the last 11 lost so much of its lustre when they lost tonight.

Don't blame the refs.. Though they had a hand in the game, if the Habs can't come back from a 1 goal lead, they have themselves to blame.

Brisebois needs a rest in bad way. Gainey needs to forget about Lecavalier (as should the fans, It's NEVER going to happen). Montreal needs a D-man!

Chris Lee sucks as a referee and his awful boarding call really took away momentum from the Habs. That said the Habs need to find away to get that momentum back in the third period, instead of continually playing into the Bruins trap.

Honestly, my first reaction was to blame the refs as well. I laughed at the 5 minute major call on Andrei cause it really didn't look like your typical hit from behind. This was just one of those games that could have went either way. Even without the penalty there's no guarantee we would have wont this one. Thomas played great and Boston really played a persistent game. We'll get the next one!

Thats the kind of games that make me hate Kovalev that much.. Clearly took the night off, 0 effort, 0 intensity.. Pleks and MaxPac had to work twice harder for the other one not showing up..

Before this game, I agreed.
After this game, we need a ****ing finisher.
Oh, NET, goalie, other side. SHOOT. GOAL. Wow, me so good.

Just asking, because from what I've seen and read, it certainly didn't sound that way.

It happens, it didn't put the Bruins out of reach, there's still a good chance Tim Thomas comes down a bit from his incredible high, and from what I gather, it was a game that was going to be decided by a mistake and it was Chris Lee who did it.
I'd give us a pretty good chance in a 7 game series, but it will be tough nonetheless.

I don't blame him everytime we lose.

And regardless if its the best line, you don't put Tom Kostopoulos out there to tie a game. Sorry.
