Heard comments that the Bell Centre fans somehow tried to fool the 6 on 4 broons into thinking there was more time left on the clock than there really was. Anyone at the game can explain what happened?
With like 5 seconds left and the Bruins looking confused, it seemed like the crowd was already cheering as if the game was over.
It's because everybody around the league thinks we did it to make Boston think the game was over when it wasn't. We just cheer really loud when we beat Boston even louder than when they win the Stanley cup lol
Montreal one of the loudest crowds if not the loudest in the league
With like 5 seconds left and the Bruins looking confused, it seemed like the crowd was already cheering as if the game was over. That's what I remember above all.
I remember that too, but was intrigued by this post by leopold in the after-game thread: "3rd period ... Chara dives (even from the other end of the ice I called it right away). Booins are trolled by the crowd into thinking there is still 30 seconds left at the end of the game. I won't tell you how."
So, wondering if there was something more to it ...
I didn't hear a boston player use this. Maybe a fan brought it up from our fanbase or theirs but meh, we were cheering when they didn't do **** for a 1 min PP and we were gonna win. I'm sure they've heard cheering before. They just didn't shoot, we didn't trick them.
I was at the game. The crowd was pumped as always and the cheering started building during the last ten seconds or so. Nothing unusual about it, nothing that wouldn't happen anywhere else, and absolutely nothing to this piece of nonsense.
Bruins fans come up with enough crazy stuff on their own without the need for supplements.
The crowd started cheering like the game was over while there was about 5 seconds left. I think the Bruins players got tricked into thinking game was over...but then again the PP wasn't exactly looking good pre-cheering.
Maybe the amount of cheering lead them to believe one of their own had been knocked down or roughed up, so they all stopped to see who needed pounding. It's the sort of thing they might do, with their goon it up attitude.
It was one of the most weird PP's I have ever seen, and the 6-4 vs the 5-4 typical PP seemed to mess them up.....they seemed to want the perfect play, and credit the 4 guys on the PK for keeping everything on the outside...
The wheel of excuses should include, the ice was bad, and the crowd was too loud....
