"Everyone here at the Bell Center is looking forward to an entertaining game tonight and an exciting start to the playoffs...... And the ref's about ready to drop the puck. He drops it! PLEKANEC WINS IT! AND THE MONTREAL CANADIENS ARE STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS!"

Yes, but his (quite clear) implication is that the faceoff on the wrong side was the cause. That MTL is done as a direct result of that blown call.
Don Cherry is a ****ing idiot. HNIC is a joke and their coverage is not what it once was. They cater to markets, business, the league, lowest common denominator, sound bites, and push loud noise over well-considered insight every single time. Their coverage is trite and derisory. TSN's is not much better. It is increasingly evident that the talking heads do not decide what to say, indeed, all they actually control is what words they decide to use to deliver whatever message their masters decide is to be delivered. You can't actually see the strings, or the hands up their ***** making their mouths move, but both programs are laughable. When they flip flop from night to night on the same issue (ala Ward on EK/Cooke) you know a call has come in and something has been said into those earpieces. Hell, listen to Galley this series - guy is basically a Stepford wife. Sad times.
Yes, so it really means nothing. Also the ref pointed to the circle straight away, it's Therrien's fault for not putting out the correct player in that situation.
Therrien is so full of it then. I hadn't realized that until I saw the replay tonight on CBC. Therrien yesterday in his presser said that he would have put different players if he had known. But like you say, the ref pointed to the circle, so it's his fault.
Watching all these games is there anyone else out there that really appreciates what Anderson gives to our team? I watch some games and keep thinking man how good would so and so team be with Anderson in their crease. The islanders would be up 3-1, the habs would be up 3-1, the leafs would be getting swept, the isles would have been out in 4 if Andy was a penguin. He just doesn't get enough credit for what he helps to us and is outplaying every goalie in the East by a wide margin. He's only allowed 1 bad goal in this series and it says something when he is outplaying Price by a wide margin.
There is no way Lalime for instance would have matched Henrik last season or Price this series. It's too bad we didn't have this Andy back then in the 2000's because there is a very large chance we would have won a cup or two with him in the net. He certainly could have been able to outplay Cujo and Belfour in the leaf playoff wars.
Maybe, because we're up 3-1 in the series and came off such a thrilling two home games I'm just too happy right now
I despise the Habs. The only thing I can think of about the Habs that I like is Galchenyuk. Don't have anything against Price but he's sucked lately. Therrien is a whiny idiot, I don't care for the rest of their players (hate Bourque and Prust), and don't even get me started on their fanbase.
