Our Crabs can do this!!! The momentum is on our side and the pressure is on them. Hoping for another amazing performance from Halak because I have a feeling we'll need it again! Cammy has been huge for us in the playoffs just when we need him, I expect a timely goal by him. I still can't believe Calgary let this guy go! Just spent all my vcash on the Habs.
Many of us (myself included) predicted Habs in 7. When it was 3-1, I swear I wasn't worried. It was only until last game, when I knew the Caps were going to be shooting like crazy that I was scared ****less. Of course, that's how goaltending legends are born. I'm hoping he doesn't have to do that again until a potential later round. We have the team to do it, we have the momentum, we have the fans, we have the rookie, we have the goalie, we have the heart, we have Youppi.
We're gonna win. Don't park downtown.
GO HABS GO!
I also had habs in 7 but after game 2 I thought they were done. I was even more convinced they were done at 1-3. Glad they're making me look dumb.
But yeah, as far as Halak is concerned, he's been amazing all year. You have to wonder if he can keep this pace up for 3 games in a row. It almost seems like an impossible challenge to me. I'm hoping the caps implode in the first and we get a large large lead by the middle of the second. If only to save my heart a couple years of beating.
The Caps and Habs are a 1 and 8 seed respectively, however, at this point in time, if you hear all the Cap fans around here compared to Hab fans it's reversed. What does that tell you? The Caps really aren't that good, and the Habs are much better than most gave them credit for.
It is one game and anything can happen. However, for the major part of the season, Washington had the luxury of playing 24 games in the SE Division.
