I don't feel cocky about tonight's game, but can you imagine if we swept the Bruins what would happen? And if it was cause of Price and our system basically demolishing them?
Scotty Gomez highest points in the series?
Julien would be fired for sure. Chiarelli's job could potentially be on the line if they don't win it with a new coaching staff. He made a lot of seemingly good moves but if they gave up all these assets and couldn't get the job done?
Should be interesting tonight. Boston will probably come out desperate after losing game 1, they don't want to go to Montreal down 2-0 so it's a HUGE game for them.
The key for the Habs is to be sharp from the get go and weather the intitial 8-10 minutes. Taking an early lead would be massive but just coming out of the 1st at 0-0 would be a victory as the longer Boston goes without scoring, the tighter the noose.
If the team is prepared for the first 10 minutes of the game and they do not get scored on, it would be great indeed. It is here that the game will be decided. The Bruins with a lead after a few minutes will, in all liklihood, mean a loss while a 0-0 scorline or a Habs lead will mean a victory. Because I am slightly biased, I predict the latter .
I'd hate to see a serious medical condition with Chara and I hope he's ok.
That being said, if Chara's out or not at 100% tonight, we NEED to take advantage of that and win the game. This series won't be easy, and when injuries or things pop up during the course of the series, we must capitalize.
