I see lots of new Pens fans since 2006 in Montreal and it's not hard to figure out why.
Pens have always had a following in Montreal that I have seen. Mostly because they seem to be drawn to french canadian players, and always have several on the team. Over the years they have had quite a few, currently Fleury, Letang, hell even Crosby was sort of adopted in Montreal from his days playing there, and showing up the first day and responding in french to reporters. Go back to Mario and even before, the Pens have always had a healthy number of french canadians on the team.

Lol, it should've been 4-3 before the game touched overtime. The Habs were handed chances to win that game, and they lost.

The Pens out played them from the drop of the puck. Price kept them in the game but Motreal didn't deserve to win that game anyway. Justice was served!

This seems to be a popular argument. I really don't see the relevance, because 1- it has no bearing on whether the call was right or not and 2- teams that get outplayed win games all the time, and few teams have been bitten by it more than the Habs this year.

Eh, just the League paying Letang back for letting him get destroyed and not calling it.

I thought of that, and would not have been surprised at a payback call given their botch on the Letang incident and the broken nose. But in this case I think that the ref legitimately thought that the puck was not covered.

It's mostly little kids. I saw ton of them last night, but they're not old enough to log on and be made fun of as bandwagon fans.

There's a lot of fans from the Lemieux heyday and his Montreal/Laval association. Please stop pretending you don't know that.

As for not loving the team of the city you live in? Singing Olé Olé at a hockey game I can tell you acts as a powerful repellent.

Pens played intil the whistle, Habs did not. Just because the ref doesn't blow the whistle right away isn't an excuse not to tie up your player in front of the net just like every other play prior to this one. The refs clearly make mistakes as you saw through the entire night. Habs have only themselves to blame for not playing to the whistle and letting Neal poke the puck free, instead of clearing the front of the net.

Yes, it was the Ref which handed the game to the Penguins. Perhaps if the Canadiens could have held the lead given their abundance of lucky breaks during regulation they wouldn't be crying about a weak non-whistle in OT.
Lol this. It's just great Letang is the one that scored.

I see people criticizing Price for not selling the save but how exactly would he have done that without risk losing the puck in the process? He was up against the goal post with the puck tucked slightly under his pad. With the Pens surrounding the net, he can't take his time to fish the puck from under him in order to pick it up in his glove and show the ref he has it. He can't just go sprawling on the ice to cover it so the ref will blow the whistle because with the placement of the puck, it could've easily sputtered out. So what exactly could Price have done to sell the save? He covered the puck with his glove because it was the safest option he had.

Simple, you cover the puck with the glove a lot better than that.

That is a loose puck to me. A "little bit" under the pads isn't covered, it was clearly visible.

If the Ref had blown the whistle it would've been the wrong call. good on the pens for continuing to play instead of being like habs and whining after the refs didn't disallow a THIRD goal on the night.

Price was just *****ing because the refs didn't help him out like they did on the last two.

you clearly dont understand the rules of hockey

theres 0 chance the ref saw the puck from where he was (unless he has xray vision). The play should of been blown dead.

Too many Pitts homers are defending such a terrible call by the refs because they are too used to this type of preferential treatment.

About Kunitz's goals, anyone can score goals in a similar fashion if ones intentionally trips the goalie to push the puck in. What a joke that guy is!

i haven't seen anyone defending the call. Just trying to get people to deal with the fact that these things happen.

Who were those people in the stands when Sidney Crosby's name was cheered during the warmup? Couldn't be Habs fans because we all know they're just classless idiots who boo at everything they're jealous of.

Its funny people bring up the 2 disallowed goals as an argument.

First of all they were both flagrant no goals so wtf?

1- Puck goes in off Kunitz glove so clear no goal.

2- Kunitz breakaway stopped by Price. Kunitz pushes Price in and the puck goes in. Again clear no goal.

3- Ref thinks the puck is loose, doesn't blow the whistle and the puck gets dislodged. Letang puts it in the net. Clear goal.

The first 2 were correct calls, the last one was not.

That doesn't matter.... once you've had 2 calls go against you even though correct, the refs owe you the 3rd.... or at least, that's my understanding.

Your understanding is illogical and refereeing should not be based on such.

ya, it happens. I'm pretty sure there will be plenty missed calls this season. One of them happened about 15-20 minutes before the goal when Letang got his face crushed. Another happened when PK kicked Neals leg out from under him which actually ended up as a high stick against Neal. I'm sure there were quite a few other missed calls on both teams. Move along.
