Not many flatten Bergeron. Like someone said, it is usually the other way around. Bergeron is one of the most deceptively strong players I have ever seen. His balance is unbelievable. Ask Fritz, Cairns, Chara, Primeau, and Ovechkin how easy it is to knock him down with a clean hit. Everytime someone hits him, it looks like they ran into a brick wall. I have not seen many players flatten Bergeron cleanly. Gleason is a great hitter, but he will have to catch Bergeron with his head down or something surprising because if Bergeron catches him or anyone else trying to run him, he will knock them down on their backside. I am not making an stupid assumption either. It is a fact that will happen. I really don't know how to describe it. He just doesn't get knocked down.

An extra 24 pounds really doesn't mean as much as you think it does.

Is Lehoux still injured for Manchester? Is he expected to play at all during the playoffs?

The narch's camp is saying.... if we make it to the third round we might see him.

Im just excited to see/hear so playoff games, and i get to see if Garon can handle the pressure....

Flinn's had some achilles problems, so yeah...he's out.


As far as Gleason and Bergeron go...they're both tough ********, especially for their ages. I can't picture one seriously outmuscling the other.

Could somebody tell me what is the Monarchs'record without Lehoux in the lineup??

I view Lehoux as an excellent offensive output and his absence might greatly affect teh first lien or 2nd line production.

IMHO this might just be what makes the difference in this series.

Leg injury I think... hopefully he will be back tonight so Walsh won't have a chance to hurt us...

4-1 near the end of the second.

Nice game from Alberts so far. 2 Assists. He looks like the might be the real deal.

It's one game. Don't get too excited.

Having said that, Hannu is capable of stealing a series.

I take it back. Manchester wins this series in six games if they showed any effort and heart.

It's obvious that, for the third year in a row, the Manchester players are just there to collect a paycheck and move on. Beating the Monarchs in the playoffs just isn't an accomplishment anymore.

Bruins in 5 or less.
