The effort was disgusting. There was no effort, so **** that. It was an embarrassment and a disgrace. I hope Therrien tears them apart in the locker room and they ****ing show up to play in game 4. ****ing disgusting.
If it's anything like the one he did in the flyers game then I expect him to rip them to bits. Most of the players on the team don't deserve to wear the CH.
Well, that was the worst game I've seen Montreal play in ages. I give Ottawa credit for coming out hard and hitting everything in site, but one hallmark of Montreal in the playoffs in the past is that they haven't been intimidated like that. You look at all those Boston series in the past decade where the Bruins thought they could just play physical and win, and it didn't work.
The big difference in games one and two is that Montreal was initiating the play all over the ice. Today, it was Ottawa, and not only did they outplay Montreal, but they got Montreal caught up into playing a game they're not suited for and taking all sorts of cheap penalties towards the end.
The Desharnais line was completely useless. DD sucked, again. Pacioretty was terrible, and I'm hoping it was because he's hurt. Ryder needs to get back on one of his streaks fast. Diaz also looked particularly bad tonight. Everyone sucked, but those players really stuck out as being particularly bad. PK looked like the Subban of last year, where he'd get frustrated and do stupid things.
Hopefully they can regain the energy they had in the first two games and start taking the game to the Senators again. The one thing I know about the playoffs is blowouts rarely matter in a seven game series. Unless it's the last game.
