I hate to pat myself on the back but......*pat, pat* :p
Great game by the habs. Nice to see us shut down the Flyers offense while dictating the outcome with our potent power play. Wished Perreault would of some how gotten that goal. I think that would of been a nice reward for a good game by him.

Wow. Incredible game. I was uber-impressed.
-Ryder is THE REAL FREAKIN' DEAL! 3 points tonight (1G 2A, 2nd Star)
-Phili got Zednified to the max (2G, 1st Star)
-Koivu chipped in a couple of assists (2A)
-Theodore was his solid self (1 GA on 23 shots, 3rd Star)
...after this, I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of fans aren't sweatin' the Devils. Let us remember to not take Jersey lightly -- Brodeur can win a game all by himself. Habs will have to get an early lead and hold it.
Full credit to the team for another superb effort for the entire game. I wasn't sure we had it in us to play that well against a prototypical big, tough Eastern conference powerhouse.
I really want to commend CJ on his game preparation and game plan. The Habs dominated the Flyers at their own game, and exploited their weaknesses. After all, Philly was riding high after totally running over the Leafs for 120 minutes in their last two games.
