I'll admit that's pretty nervy to say facing an elimination game. But yeah, keep thinking you're better than us and hopefully we quietly come in and end it tonight.

Please enlighten me on where exactly I said this is a huge deal and where I said it was annoying me.

Also, don't worry. I have thick enough skin. In fact, I'm trying to lose as much of my thick skin as I can. It's making me look fat.

As it relates to Subban getting cross checked in the face....it happens.

Messier cross-checked Doug Glimour in the forehead in front of the Devils bench in one PO series.

No call.

It happens.

You can wilt because of it or not...

Just as silly as the "outrage" over Gryba's comment.

Get used to it. Before game 1, Kadri said this against the Bruins "This is a winnable series" and you know what happened the next day? Media turned it on him saying he's being cocky. That's the canadian media.

You expressed an opinion about your desire to know if the fans are going to use excuses for the series lost. You closed your opinion with ''Hopefully not''. Why would you want to know if it's none of your concern? Why would you post something that is irrelevant to you?

This.

In fact, this sums up ALMOST every single comment a player makes to a media?

Gryba wants to come out with a killer instinct? Good, I'd hope he does.
Kadri thinks it's a very winnable series? Good, do you want him to think they have no shot?
PK thinks his team is better and wants to win? Good, what else do you expect?

Exactly. Kadri spoke for 4 minutes about how effective the Bruins are and how tough the series will be...and all they took is the 4 seconds in which he said this is a very winnable series and ran with it.

I really don't mind Subban's comments because they were one goal away from tying the series. If you don't have confidence in yourself and your team, you're not going to win.

The Flyers could have laid down and gotten swept but they chose to work hard and came back to win 4-3 against the Bruins.

I'm really confused on the Montreal injury situation. Are Patches and Bourque ALSO out of the game tonight?

Nope, they are in. I think Blunden is being called up.

As someone who is going to school for something in the sports field and is surrounded by 70% Leaf Fans, 28% Habs fans, and only a couple Sens fans, I'll tell you why.

First, it's completely understandable that Montreal fans come out with "We would've won if ____" right after a series loss (if it happens). Every fanbase does that. But because of how my whole life resolves around sports (work, school, play) I'm merely interested to see if all my friends that are Habs fans will try and completely write off the Senators accomplishments if they were to win the series. Also, I have to ask. If you're calling me out for something that is "irrelevant to me", than why are you doing the exact same thing? Why do you care about what I "wonder"?

Gionta, Eller, Price, White & Prust are all out.

Bourque and Pacioretty are banged up but they'll probably play. Same for Ryder.

Not looking good, but every team has to face adversity once in a while.

Blunden draws in for Prust. Pacioretty should be good to go. Bournival will take part in the warmup just in case, but is not expected to play.

Game plan tonight should be to put shots on budaj from anywhere.....which is pretty much what the habs have limited the sens to 2/3 periods in anyways. I just think that the sens can focus on the perimeter game if the Habs continue to have their sticks in the right place all the time on the inside.

I think this game is gonna be tough for the sens.

I think Budaj has something to prove after that overtime goal and I noticed Habs were blocking a Ton more shots in game 4 as opposed to other games. It's definitely not going to be an easy to win even with injuries. Ottawa of all teams know key injuries don't mean a push over team.

The key point for Ottawa will be to score first. It'll put a lot of pressure on Montreal because they are down 3-1 even though they've played exteemely well, I't would be even better if it was a weak goal maybe take some confidence from the Habs. Sens also need to punish every Montreal player that goes into the corners with them wear them down. Maybe even agitate and frustrate like game 3 but not as dirty both ways.

As for the Habs the key for their success will be to play the speed game get screens infront of the net, play who's hot, don't get drawn into a physical battles, and try to draw some penalties. Habs PP is strong and almost guaranteed they could get some points on it. I think it'll be hard to solve Anderson for Montreal but their best bet is to play a skill game for the whole game. And not let off the throttle.
