Proud of this team and so fricking excited for the future.
Hope Price continues to get better and mature because Subban and Eller brought their A game every single night. The way he has progressed this offseason, wouldn't mind him being our second line center next year.
Out of this series I come out with the Habs keeping up due to great Special teams while the Bruins were abysmal. All around good series to watch. Not quite the calibre of Vancouver-Chicago, but still entertaining.
Sigh. Too bad. I was just saying to Dad "look at everyone just standing there" and sure enough, late to a puck battle results in a lost puck, then it gets moved around and no one was quick enough to cover the point shot. Can't believe that got in from out there. Good run by the boys, but talent and execution were sorely lacking. Was pretty funny when the CBC idiots suggest we look for anything BUT PK's big shot on that final PP, and then he ends up tying the game with it, lol.
Gomez, Gionta, and Cammalleri all -3 in game 7... That Gomez line wasted a lot of pucks, and were completely unable to even slow down the resultant Bruins transition game coming back the other way. So frustrating to watch. Faceoffs... I know we suck at them, but the linesmen have to really cut it out with the drama and delaying.
for some reason I'm not really mad. I guess I must be proud of my team
despite all our shortcomings, injuries, walking wounded, past prime players, we literally took it to the end. halpern tried to block it but instead deflected off of him for the elimination goal. kudos for trying. thems the breaks.
again, we've defied odds and showed alot of heart and character. to next year, we have alot of strong points to build upon. also, as we move forward, we'll have to shed some weak points in order to advance.
it hurts, but I'm very proud of this group. Can't wait to see us healthy and with a younger D next year. Up front we don't need many changes. If our D gets more solid and mobile, we can move forward with the same forwards if they choose to.
Very entertaining series, sadly the injuries over the season were too much for them. I don't think they would have had any gas to beat the Caps. Future looks bright though, keep your heads up high Habs fans, we were suppose to lose in 3 games to the Bruins and took them to game 7 overtime.
