It sickens me to say this but if Ottawa and Boston were to face off in a series, I would root for Boston...

The only real knock on the team in this series has been inconsistent defense (which is inexcusable) and a lack of drive to the net (although this is somewhat mitigated by the fact that it's difficult to drive the net with a 215 lb gorilla waterskiing behind you).

100% agree. and i still feel gutted this morning. The habs are not built for the playoffs and the refs are letting everything that is on the line go - which benefits a team of grinders with pylons on D

there is really nothing left for the optimist.

It is good that we have a young time and can take the long run view...

Many, many winning teams have had similar experiences...

Even those dreaded B's were upset by us before successfully navigating the play-offs.

We must remember that the team over-achieved a bit this year. We are still developing and growing and a bad tasting loss like this could be just what the dr. ordered...

It's probably too late to salvage this series... but next year this team is going to be the class of the division.

Same here.

I'd cheer for the Leafs or Bruins before I cheer for the damn Senators after this crack.

If we really are going to have a first-round exit, may as well have Diaz taken out of play and replaced with Beaulieu.

I'm not even worried. We excel at coming back from 3-1 down. It's our thing. And this time we get 2 home games. #comebacktime

there should be consequences for whoever took that decision. not only did it have an impact on yesterday's game but it directly influenced the series. theres a huge difference between being down 3-1 and losing a few starters as a direct result and coming back home to the Bell even 2-2 with the crowd on your side. its rediculous that few blind bozos have that much influence on the outcome.

I hated to see Galchenyuk basically nailed to the bench in the 3rd, even late. More importantly, this series could easily be 3-1 in our favor right now. I am sad about that.



We have two issues...a BIG one and a little one

Staring with the little one - officiating, it sux, but, all the teams have to deal with it, so, at least it's even in that way....but seriously, the NHL needs to take the NFL's lead on this and start with firing those who consistently screw up, especially video replay types

Now on to the BIG issue

This team needs a little more "bite" to their game, not just size....look at Gallagher, he's small but damn he's got some bite. I love the speed, we have some good skill. I know there are some injuriy issues, and there were a couple times we can second guess MT, but seriously, MB has a big job ahead.

NHL told the Canadiens that linesman made a mistake on the faceoff before the first Sens goal. Faceoff should have been on the left side.

They just couldn't apologize for Ottawa's **** goals that were allowed though.

Saying all that its not over, being the better team all year, we should still be able to beat these guys 3 in row. I wouldn't bet on it obviously but outside chance yeah?
Again with the Price ****.

He kept us in the game until the team unravalled with the kicked in goal. The game tying goal should have been goaltender interference. Turris had Price's stick under his arm. That is a penalty. Also he made no attempt to avoid contact. That's a penalty.

Any one in Montreal going to the next game should not only boo all the Sens players but any time there a linesman has the puck, offside, icing and any call the ref makes.

I don't want to hear any cheering unless the Habs score, Karlsson gets hurt or a big hit. It should be 60 mins of booing.

I for one wouldn't go to the next game and so should everyone else. Don't give another dime to this ******** bush league.

Tough one to swallow isn't it? I think the Canadiens outplayed the Senators and played a perfect road game until the third period.

I really think this is Ottawa's year. They've made some good things but except for game #3 Montreal has been the better team. Other than this they've had some lucky bounces going their way and these bounces are good enough for them.

I'm more pissed at the icing calls than anything else. The goal is debatable while the icing is a weak ass call on an easy play by the referees.

The thing that bothers me. Is the icing call on karrlsson. He let p and they should have waved it off.

Didn't see the replay, but the Habs have been ***** by the referees with the interference calls. Remember Anderson getting shot two times? Two penalties. I know it's unpopular to bash the referees but they've been god damn awful.

If Ottawa needs this much ref help to get past us(2 goals for us disallowed and 1 or 2 freebies given to them), then it is sure has hell NOT their year. The league has more "favored" teams like Pittsburgh or Boston.

The player has to make a direct line to the puck. Neither icing did they make a direct line, they also decided to slow down after noticing the puck would cross the line.

Garry ****ing Galley even said so himself on CBC.
