Last night we took their heart...tonight we take there will...Sens gained a lot of confidence in that 3rd period...Habs will do there thing...Ottawa hopefully will win and bring this back 2-0 for the Sens...
I respect the Habs, and respect the loyalty of their fans to the team...but tonight we have to take their will
I get the whole standing up for your injured teammate thing, but when the entire hockey world unanimously agrees that it was a clean hit, a comment like that just screams stupidity.
Lol, it's not a comment that would make sense in any situation. It's schoolboy name-calling. MacLean is well above that kind of garbage. He'll probably get a real chuckle when he hears what was said about him.
Pacioretty, Eller and Gionta out tonight. Time to put our foot down on their throats and crush them at home. No excuses. Take advantage of the opportunity and steal their home ice advantage right out from under them.
Despite the loss of Eller and now Gionta and Patches, I expect the Habs to come out hard tonight.

How about this one?

? RT @RenLavoieRDS Therrien thinks that MacLean comments last night were "a total lack of respect for Lars Eller and his family." #canadiens
This. Or these?
Tonight's game has the workings of a trap game. In any case, I am confident that McLean will have the troops focused on the task at hand. Like yesterday's game, if Ottawa can weather the storm from the first few minutes, and get another early goal to rattle Price, this would be ideal.
To be honest, before the series began, if the Senators left Montreal with a split, I would be happy. Given that this goal has already been met regardless of tonight's result, to me it feels that if the team can win tonight's game, it would make a tremendous impact on the series, especially given how strong the Senators are at SBP. I am in no way stating, nor insinuating that the series is over if the Senators head back to SBP with a 2-0 lead, but such a result would greatly increase the pressure on the Habs given the Senators' strong record at home, the frenzy from their own press and rabid fanbase, and last but not least, the increased scrutiny under the microscope at their key players including Price.
Regarding the comments directed at McLean, I find it funny that other fanbases with an axe to grind and in no way involved in this series, such as Penguins fans, are also finding issue where there is none (i.e. calling McLean classless, cocky, arrogant, etc.)
