I think solid goaltending and heart could be the difference maker though for this team in the playoffs.

I hope they beat Detroit and keep the momentum going, OT would be great, go Habs!
Tampa had vinny, msl, khabby and Richards at their absolute best in the 04 playoffs. It was a pretty good team even if they weren't a top 3 cup favorite.

Carolina also had a good teaam, and they added weight and recchi at the deadline. In their case, they got really lucky in terms of the opposition suffering key injuries. They came back on Montreal after Williams knocked koivu out by sticking him in the eye. They got past buffalo in 7 games because they iced an ahl defense due to injuries. Then Edmonton lost their starting goalie in the finals, but it still took 7 games to knock them out.

The amount of stars that aligned for Carolina will be very difficult to duplicate. Its just too much to expect to go your way in one run. They were incredibly fortunate.

I'm sure he does care, that could also be a strategy and put the pressure on the Habs to sign him and match that offer sheet

You actually believe the Leafs need our help to fall out of the playoffs? I'm positive they are more than capable of doing it all on their own.

Only Players 27 or with 7 seasons played in the NHL can be presented with an offer sheet. Not before. If a player doesnt play a single NHL game before December 1st they automatically lose the right to play that year. But are still RFA until they are 27 years old.

The 1st game against Detroit was when the habs were going through an awful stretch, and they forgot how to play hockey. Everybody was beating Montreal back then.

Tough to guage the 2nd matchup because it was right after the Olympics...

So I really don't know what to expect for this game, other than that Montreal better be ready to match Detroit's urgency. Their playoffs have already begun.

I was under the impression that once a player reaches 27 or has played 7 seasons in the NHL, they become a UFA rather than an RFA who can be given an offersheet.

Wings fan coming in peace. Here's to a hopefully well-officiated game

I've only seen a handful of Habs game this year. Any players I should pay extra attention to?

World Peace is actually more likely than a well-officiated hockey game. But here's to good sentiments

As to your question; we have been a rather.. spreaded bunch over the year. Subban has had incredible moments, but so has Markov. Desharnais always seems to be knocked silly, but he cranks up points with his playmaking. Patch/Vanek are our best scorers.

Recently, Bourque has been on a roll. So.. he's the long bet.

Galchenyuk and Subban can really wow you from time to time. Look for Gallagher to be in the paint all game.

Looking forward to seeing Gus Nyquist. He was exciting to watch last year in the playoff.

Therrien made Subban a better person too. He isn't just a hockey coach, he is a coach of your soul

I don't care about Schadenfreud for the freakkin' Leafs. That's cream on top of the cake. It's meaningless without the cake.

Perhaps this is not a great mystery. The answer might be behind the bench? Just a thought...

The usual suspects- Pacioretty, Price and Subban.
Good chemistry with the Vanek line being developed.
Emelin has looked good for about a month. Seems to have turned the corner a bit after his injury.
The entire Habs 4 line is on IR, that hurts.

I expect Habs to lose. Wings outplayed us in both games and now they are desperate and fighting for a spot. Even though they have countless injuries and should have been out of it by now they are still a great skating team. I don't know how many interviews I've heard Babcock preach skating and how that's the first think they look at when they draft. And it really shows, all the kids they bring up from Grand Rapids are fast and excellent skaters. Even with all the injuries they can still keep up with anybody.

It was also the power-playoffs that year coming out of the lockout with the new rules.

You get that kind of negative attitude out of here. Habs have got this
