It won't be... they'll come out strong... it'll be a battle if we're gonna win tonight.

Budaj isn't new... backup or not, you don't stay in the NHL by being crap... he'll be good, but hopefully our boys will find a way to be better.

Upon further review - Ottawa put out their best faceoff guy along with Zibanejad (a second center).

Easy.

If you honestly believe that the Sens in the finals would draw more viewers than the Habs and make the league more money, then there's nowhere else to go in this convo. It's absurd.

It set up the play that lead to the goal, as Montreal lost the draw. Essentially, they placed the present right on the wrapping paper, and you guys wrapped the present.

What does that have to do with anything?

good on them, it's still something that rarely happens. Most would probably put a better C that's all. Would have probably happened if MT knew the FO was on the other side as DD is a leftie and Halpern is a rightie...

How about blaming Therrien for the poor line choice, how about blaming the players for their defensive breakdown, how about crediting Ottawa for working hard and scoring the goal.

Nope, instead we'll blame the linesman. Like I said, ridiculous.
That exact problem was caused by the linesman.

Deny it or not, but it's true.

Plus I never said that it was the only reason Ottawa scored.

Those saying it's Therriens fault are really reaching.

He could have adapted better, but how is he supposed to know that the faceoff is going to get screwed up?

It all started with the linesmen. What happened after that is up for debate, but not the initial error. There's no debate there.

If that was the present, it came from the dollar store and was brocken before we received it. It's really such a minor issue, and I can't understand why people are grasping onto it and unwilling to let it go.

The linesman lined up on the wrong side, the linesman kicked out Montreal's centreman, both things are true but here's the thing. There was still hockey to be played after that.

Montreal lost a bunch of draws that didn't result in goals. By your own admission, Therrien sent out the wrong guy out there no matter where the faceoff would have been taken. That to me is a personnel issue and Ottawa would have likely won the face off regardless of what side it was on.

DD should never be taking faceoffs in the defensive zone.

However he shouldn't be taking faceoffs in the offensive zone either.

Frankly, he shouldn't be a centre. But that's our problem, lol

You're probably right, but there is no way to know for certain...

I never said otherwise.

Anyone saying otherwise is blind to the truth. But dismissing the error and playing the "zomg excuses11!!!11" card is a little naive IMO. Who knows what would have happened if it was done in the correct manner? Moot point, since it wasn't.

That being said, fans shouldn't dwell on the obvious error. I posted several times that every team goes through it. Such is life in the NHL.

We have got enough bad calls during the season to almost make us miss the playoffs. It's funny cause it's true. But the last game doesn't matter anymore and crying over spilt milk is not going to refill the glass.

The habs lack toughness so they make up for it with cheapshots and dives.
I have no respect for this team after watching this series.

Maybe that call is Karma for all the diving that team does?

I can let it go. But when I "complain" or argue the one time that I believe the Habs got "robbed" and then I get pounced on by a lot of you Sens fans, it's like we are "grasping onto it and unwilling to let it go."

Give me a break. You guys complain about non-calls and blown calls (see the Gryba suspension) too.
