If MTL fans don't act like idiots, they will not have any issues at all. I have been to several B's v Habs games (incl playoffs) and unless the Canadien's fans are drunk and/or obnoxious, there's unlikely to be any trouble (and I'm guessing that even less will be tolerated at this game given the circumstances).

You could substitute fans from just about any two team's fan bases (not just BOS-MTL) and the same would be true.

Even if you think that Chara intentionally hurt Pacioretty (which I think is ridiculous), do you really think that that BOS is going to go after another guy so soon?

I think they will wait until Game 2 of the playoffs at the very earliest...
Hmm, Boychuk whipping out that knee against Subban in spectacular fashion?

Haha, that depends if you guys make it out of the 2nd round to play us.
Honestly, I think this is a bit overrated, unless you are talking about guys like Lucic and Komisarek who were going at it over a couple of seasons. You might see Horton or Marchand and Subban go after it a little harder, but I doubt we see anything unusual.

Right now, it looks like we may be meeting in round 1, unless you are planning on letting the Rags catch you and fall to the 7th spot

Yeah, that was "spectacular", exaggerate much?

If you want to see a better "knee on knee" hit, check out Plex's hit on Lucic.

Did anybody take Plekanec out after that?

That makes no sense. Why would they injure Gomez and take him out of the lineup when they can just leave him be and let him continue to do nothing and take up 7.5mil in cap space.

Kaberle told them not to injure his tennis partner.

Hyperbole is a legit writing tool and should be easy to recognize. It was quite clear Boychuk wanted to make contact on Subban's knee.

Hmm, my bad for bad-mouthing Saint Boychuk then.

BTW, recklessness is one of your team's finest traits, whether they intend to hurt people or not.

No not in a vicious way, I'm saying more how other teams used to target Bourque back in the day. I can see Bruins forwards like Marchand, Horton, Thornton, and Lucic going after Subban in the same fashion. Trying to hit him at every chance, to either cause him to rush plays or slow him down. Oh and I'm not comparing Subban to Bourque.

Haha plenty of time left, we still have our sights on the division title.

#1) I don't assume anything when I read comments regarding MTL and BOS from fans.

#2) Your statement about recklessness is totally subjective. The B's have lost a total of 6 games to suspension this year since they started penalizing head shots, but have lost players to these hits for far more games themselves in the past. I would guess that you consider Chara "reckless" and not just an extremely large and strong individual, but the history says otherwise.

I keep forgetting how many games Chara has been suspended in his NHL career that has spanned 12 years and over 900 games?


Oh, that's right...zero.

You are correct, he's the perfect "reckless" captain for the most "reckless" team in the NHL

I got you. And I agree about that and not being able to compare PK to Bourque

I understand tu quoque very well. It just means that everyone has "dirty hands", including the B's. You establishing that the B's have been the victims too does not absolve them of their own reckless play. It's like a vandal and an embezzler trying to sue each other in court. (The last sentence in this paragraph is a simile; this is stated because by your own admission, you refuse to recognize literary devices.)


Also, appeal to one's reputation(lack of suspensions) is an inductive argument. Reputation is an appeal to probability, not a deductive syllogism.

No offense, but avoiding a suspension because you never had a suspension before gets slippery as an excuse when it happens more than once.

It will likely be Thornton or nobody. Wouldn't surprise me at all if there are no fights and the B's just try to play a normal physical game like last night against NJ. Ordinarily, the B's seem to play at a higher level when the game is exceptionally gritty (see DAL), but that seems to work against them against MTL. Just play smart and skate hard and everything else will work itself out.


ps Size-wise...Campbell would be the best fit for White.
Excellent. I'm still a bit bitter about the cheap, gutless "fights" Pyatt and Spacek were involved in the last game in Boston. No matter if they initiated/accepted to fight those Nobel prize winners, once someone's down, you give it a rest (see: Pouliot). You also don't use parts of your equipment to hit.

Chara was suspended once and avoided suspension in two cases due to league's decision just to my knowledge.

Suspension: http://sports.espn.go.com/nhl/news/story?id=2246325

Two cases of him avoiding suspension: Pacioretty and getting an instigator vs the Sabres last playoffs (http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=319245)

Based on Marchand's previous hits and the state of the Habs' D in general, I expect the Habs' d-men to be in for a long, tough night. I expect Mara to be in the lineup but if he does any handywork on Campbell, Thornton and company it will mean 5 D instead of 6.

With last night's roster if the Habs come out uninjured and lose I'll be content. If the Habs come out with a point and uninjured I'll be somewhat happy. If they come out with a win and no injuries I'll be extremely happy.
