This game will be TOUGH. Coming off an emotional with 1 day of rest (WTF?). We might come out really flat in the first like Detroit. Halak is going to have to continue his greatness to avoid any 3-0 holes. Scoring the first goal would be massive.
ANTI-JINX!!!! I love Chris Lee, he is one of the best officials in the NHL, he always calls the game fairly, precisely and makes zero stupid calls when he officiating. Possibly one of the best officials of all time, should definitely go down in the hockey hall of fame as one of the best.
Kudos to Chris Lee on being the best and most fair ref in the NHL.
As for Chris Lee, I can't believe he has a spot reffing in the playoffs. One of the bigger mysteries of the NHL. I predict we get at least 3 or 4 bad calls on us tonight, leading to Pittsburgh powerplays.
I really hope the Habs won't try to win the game just by hanging on to dear life to a slim lead. It's nice that it worked and all credit to Halak and the D, but the best defense remains playing in the opponent's zone.
You probably already know this...But watch out for Matt Cooke. He loves to go for those dirty hits to the head and knees. Feel free to pound him anytime you can. He deserves all of the hard hits he can get.
I just cant wait for this game! Weekend starts and finally im able to watch game live on tv, no need to worry to wake up early because of work..what a luxury for overseas fan Hab jersey on and few(actually lots of..)beers and gonna give helluva support to our Habs warriors
The Penguins are one of the greatest teams in the history of hockey. Fleury is unstoppable, he is a brick wall. No one can score on Fleury, he is like Roy Dryden and Brodeur. Probably best goalie in league right now.
Crosby is definitely the best player to ever play the game ever ever.
Malkin is a cool Russian.
The best player on the Penguins is Chris Kunitz, eliminate him and the habs MIGHT have a chance.
Otherwise, this high-octane franchise will destory the habs, 9-2.
