When someone says it, I imagine they're the kind who get their jimmies all rustled about losing those fights. That's about it.

I could care less about losing fights.

We lost the series 4 games to 1.

We got completely out coached.

We took dumb penalty after dumb penalty in Game 3.

The Walrus completely disrespected Eller after the hit, and we responded by losing game after game.

The Sens scored 6 goals twice in a 5 game series.

Or entire team looked disinterested and uninvolved, while the Sens were flying.


Except for Game 1, we looked like we were nowhere near Ottawa's level for the vast majority of the series.

We pretty much came out dominating them every game. Their goalie just stood on his head and ours pretty much did the opposite. Granted, I don't think I need to explain what I think about Therrien and his coaching, but despite all the injuries and incompetence, the habs skaters still largely outplayed ottawa's.

Not the series I remember except for Game 1. While Price was far from great, the team itself seemed to have zero resilience. When the Sens held the lead, I never felt that Montreal would get back into the game; conversely, when the Habs held a lead, you could see Ottawa pushing hard to get back into it.

We can credit Anderson, who did play an amazing series, but even during the "Halak Miracle" Pittsburgh and Washington managed to win 3 games.

The collapses were in the 3rd period, after they started strong in the games but Anderson turned everything away in the first two frames. Yes it shouldn't happen, and it showed some mental weaknesses, but the Habs certainly put a lot of rubber on him before the breakdowns. Go look at the boxscores.

Yeah, I did that, and here they are:

Game 2: MTL 34 OTT 30
Game 3: MTL 34 OTT 30
Game 4: MTL 28 OTT 34
Game 5: MTL 34 OTT 29

Hardly numbers that suggest domination by the Habs in the shot department. In addition, we rarely got quality shots off, mainly just firing from crap angles / distances.

You had mentioned you were going to go over those tapes. Did you ever wind up doing this? I still say that we didn't do near enough to screen Anderson.

Price wasn't great. But again, we lost battles in front of our own net. The real killer was the game tying goal that injured Price in game 4 that would've tied the series. We were just manhandled.

Exactly.

And when we they did get physical, it was I the most undisciplined way imaginable.
