Habs got exposed as smurfs. All those injuries just proved a small team can't survive in the playoffs. They do have some nice young talented smurfs, though.

Sens should be thankful for Anderson. lets see if he can continue to carry them (I doubt it) don't be overally confident because of this game. Habs had a lot man down and Budaj came in cold.

Good effort from the Habs to make the playoffs atleast. They have a good young team that should bounce back next season.

Hate to say it, but my Leafs will most likely have the same fate and lose to Boston tomorrow.
Sens have beaten Boston once in the last 2 years so "easily" is a overstatement

I was extremely suprised when they named Gionta captain over Gorges a couple years back.
My thinking is Gionta had some incriminating pictures on Bob Gainey & Jacques Martin. Only way they could have gave him the "C"...

I agree, but we beat them twice. Haven't beaten them in Ottawa since 2009, though.

Agreed.

Any team the Sens play isn't going to be easy.

May just be me, but seems like the Habs-Sens fans relationship is still alright even after all the craziness from the series. Maybe slightly hurt, but still seems alright.

Funny story, my uncle took the train to Montreal today and was walking around downtown Montreal in a Sens shirt and a firefighter sprayed him a bit as a joke.

What a crappy way for the Habs to go out. Can't really use injuries as an excuse in sports, but when you lose your starting goalie and your back-up plays like he did tonight, no team has a chance (especially against a goalie like Craig Anderson and a team like the Ottawa Senators). I am very proud of what they accomplished this season, where almost everyone didn't even have the Canadiens making the playoffs, let alone winning the Northeast Division. They're going to be great for years to come, with MB and (sadly, the whiny) MT at the helm.

Props go out to the Sens for being the BETTER TEAM this series. They played a very opportunistic game, manhandled the Habs in each of the 3rd periods of each game, spanked them twice 6-1, and came back from being down 2 different times to win games. Craig Anderson is amazing, I wish Price would play 80% as well as CA has over this series (and this season for that matter). Erik Karlsson is amazing, Cowen is amazing, MacLean is amazing. Great team to cheer for...i'm on the bandwagon now. Go Go (starting tmrw )

Can't lie, I'll enjoy seeing the sens lose in round 2.

Habs played like ****, but they played like that since they clinched. I had a bad feeling coming into these playoffs whoever the opponent was going to be. Not blaming the refs or anything, this one's all on Habs players and coaching.

Sens looked very strong against the Habs and Anderson is on fire.

They will match up good with the Bruins. This is playoff hockey now, not regular season.

This X1000. I didn't want to discredit Pacioretty, so I didn't bother responding, but since you did, it's not necessarily THAT bad of an injury. Depending on the grade of separation you can play. I've done it before, as have many many others. Nonetheless, good for Pacioretty.

it was significant enough for him to miss game #2, so i think it's safe to say it wasnt just a minor separation.

@tsn_wally: Ott outscored Mtl 13-0 after the 2nd prd. That is the largest shutout disparity for the 3rd prd/OT in a single series in Playoff history.

I don't see anyone being over confident. And all playoff teams need a good goalie. But a good goalie can't score you any goals.

How again is montreal "the best team in this series"? ? ?

They can't handle a few injuries for a week and we went MONTHS and made the playoffs, still not all of our players were back, some still healing and some not producing but a series win vs. a 2nd seed in 5 games with 2 6-1 KILLING!?

I'll never understand that phrase.

Ottawa played with heart & passion & completely embarrassed Montreal.

PK should be embarrassed of himself as a person & a player..

For an ARENA to look half empty IT WAS ALOT MORE THAN A DOZEN! lol

But I guess you had your little eyes closed sooo tight all game that you didn't see all of the EMPTY seats nearing the final of the game.

Again, THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS headed for the exit... very supportive I guess

Ottawa was for sure the better team in this series. Montreal could never really put together 60 mins of great hockey (besides Game 2).

As for injuries, we have no depth at goalie, and we had 5 other key guys go down...it's not an excuse, it's just a fact.

Congrats to the Sens and their fans. Great games, great team, amazing crowds in both towns, sure it's just the beginning of a great decade for both teams. And even if we like "hating" them (not so much after all), very happy to see the Bruins and the Leafs at this level. Shall be a wonderful division, with Detroit it will be amazing. It could have been very cool to push that in 7, for the history, but you were just to strong this year, now Bergevin can start to build his own team, we have the skills we need the toughness. Good luck for the 2d round and sorry for my poor english
