Here's for a positive:

After his three-point night, Cammalleri is now one-point away from Corey Perry, leading scorer of the playoffs with 8 points. He's also tied for second in assists with Keith Yandle and Ian White, once again only behind Perry who has 6 assists.

Good to see Cammy step it up again this year.

They had 2 chances to win at home and it didn't happen. How about winning the next 2 games and finally have something to celebrate for at home? I believe. This team is well built. This team doesn't give a damn about momentum. They will shut down the bruins in boston and they will have learned there lesson for game 6 in montreal.

I believe this team needs to be the underdog to win. It shows how fragile they are, but it is what it is. When people think the Habs are down and out, they come back and surprise everybody. However, it seems they cannot handle having a lead, psychologically at least. I wish I had deeper knowledge of psychology because there's a good analysis to make here. What are the psychological ties and effects of not being able to keep playing the game plan when leading?

Anyhow, Habs are back in the underdog role and they will thrive, once again.

I'm definitely frustrated by some of the mistakes that have severely cost the team in the last two games, but I'm certainly not of the mind that the Habs are in a bad position right now.

The main thing that has me optimistic is how they've completely shut down the Bruins first line. The lackluster effort of Lucic and Horton has helped them do this, but Pleks, Subban and Gill deserve a ton of credit for this as well.

It's a best of three series now and the Bruins are relying heavily on Ryder/Kelly/Peverley/Recchi/Marchand/Bergeron to provide almost all of their offense. It's worked for two games, but I don't think the Bruins can consistently win with those guys being their go-to players. If the Habs bottom 4 defensemen can step up their game by even a modest increment, I have a feeling the B's could once again become a team that has profound scoring difficulties.

This is definitely still winnable.

Subban, Cammy, Pleks, A.Kost and Price have all been excellent this series... playing as well or better than we could have expected.


DD, White & Eller (in the few minutes they get every game) have all shown that we have some bright young players on the way up.

Moen, Hamrlik, Gill, Halpern, Pyatt, Darche have all provided the kind of steady veteran play you need in the playoffs... unspectacular, but solid.


and let's just not speak about the rest.

When you are fearless, you are strong. When you are cautious, you are weak.

Things I've learned from watching the Habs.

I just love these losers who lose all hope after the last two games. Seriously? We're up by 2 so most expect a sweep? C'mon be realistic! Sure I would have loved it, but sweeping the Bruins... People lose confidence cause in game 3 we played like ****? I'll agree, we weren't too good for 35 minutes in that game, but we came back, while it may be too late, it still demonstrates that we didn't give up. Last night, we lose another heartbreaker. You have to hand it to the Bruins, they got very opportunistic with the few chances we gave them. It happens. Somehow, now people think we're going to lose the series.

THESE ARE THE SERIES. Anything can happen, it's survival of the fittest. You get bitten,sometimes, and other times you bite back. Don't give me that momentum is on the Bruins side ********. If that made any sens, the Canucks-Hawks series would be long over by now. If it made any sens, last year, we would have faced the Bruins and not the Flyers in the conference finals because they were leading 3-0.

Quit making stupid excuses. Quit bashing our players in retarded ways. Actually, give credit to the Bruins for winning the way they did. But this series is far from over! You don't want to believe? You won't stop making ****** excuses? Well get the **** out and cheer for some other team. We, real Habs fans, don't want you here.

Us real Habs fans, we stick with the team and we believe we'll win even if the odds are stacked against us, even if we're losing 3-0 in a series, even if half our roster is injured. I'm glad to see that there some real habs fans around here. I believe! We believe! Go Habs GO! This ain't over yet!

The things I've learned from this series is that there's no logic behind who wins and who loses and that momentum doesn't mean much.

So anything can still happen.

With the way the games are won, we can say that the Canadiens have Away ice advantage

This.

We're badly missing Markov, Gorges and to a lesser extent MaxPac. I'm saying to a lesser extent because he's still unproven in the playoffs.

But this team is so resilient, they're playing like they don't need them.Screw that momemtum thing, that means nothing.

I don't see them as contender of course. I mean... not this year

I'll save the positivity for 10 pm tonite,if we can win. How lame is this injury excuse? Markov may not be on the team next year,and if he is ,and get hurt,you got another season long excuse-fest

i was thinking "complementary player" but ended up writing veteran. but yeah, main point is that he's been delivering as much as we could have expected from him.



how's this for positivity:

PLAYOFF GAME TONIGHT VS HATED RIVAL.... YEAH BABY!!!!!!
