Chara should give his captaincy to Chris Kelly (3rd line blue collar guy who has paid his dues, unlike big Z).

This team is asking for trouble if the effort level in Game 3 is anything below what it was the last two games.

Yes every game is important, but in any given series, usually game 4 is the most important. Simply because for most matchups, odds are the series will be 2-1 before game 4 (majority of cases), it then becomes 2-2 or 3-1 after game 4, and here the difference is the most significant, as you're either gonna have to play a best of 3 series, or you'll have 3 games to get just one win.

Best example is last year against Philly, if Habs won the 4th game, they would've tied the series instead of being on the brink of elimination.

Bruins want to prove they can overcome a 0-3 deficit. Not the best plan...

Habs have proven they can overcome a 3-1 deficit. Not an advantage for the Bruins.

I was feeling the Gionta one.
That's a tough call.

I'll go out on a limb and say you switch to the team colors and wear the red one. But if the Habs lose it will be your fault only. LOL

yep that's a tough one...!
It depends what your initial motivations were. Did you intentionally wear the white one because the habs were away, or did it just happen randomly? If it happened randomly stick with it, but if you wore it 'cause they were away, then stick with your logic and switch to the red one.

CBC has long been a joke for Hab fans. There are very few of them who are impartial. Cherry at least admits he's a Leaf fan (still think he's a knob though).

I think the bias against the habs for the Bruins series is based more on perceived viewer demographics. They think more of their viewers will be Leaf fans and as a result pander towards their hatred of us. I'm sure they've done polls etc.... but I don't think this is a particularly effective strategy. The habs have always had a strong english fanbase in the rest of the country who have been fed a strong diet of the Leafs forever. We find other ways to watch our team (I Have RDS) during the regular season and can usually count on hab games in the playoffs. The CBC gets first crack at the broadcasts, but I'm sure TSN would love to have the Hab games.

I can't remember the last time the Laffs and habs were in the playoffs but I'm sure it was a broadcast friendly schedule and the broadcast were less biased against the habs.

As for the actual hit.... just another example of Lucic being a crybaby. He targets players exactly like this all game long. It's typical Boston.... they've always been whiners and always will be. If that ever changes they may have a chance, until then enjoy watching another team hoist the cup.

You can wear whichever one you want. The Habs won't lose because you switched your jersey. Reality is waiting for you.

I'd love for the Habs to end this in 5... finishing them off in their own barn and watch their fans cry would be hilarious !

I also see us being so banged up from the series that we are out quickly in the next round.
I called it in 7 .... hope I was right!

Hope my second prediction is wrong, but it looks to be just about right.

Go Habs Go!
