Don't lie to yourself, we got out-classed this series. If it wasn't for Gerber this one could of been done in 4 or 5. This team is still as gutless as it has been for the past 10 years... no two ways about it. Disgusting.

3 Overtime games. This series could have been over quickly for either team and is a testament to how tight the East is this year.

I question your eye sight or hockey knowledge.

Carolina: Wouldn't throw a body-check or take one if their season depended on it.

Winning response: Awesome, lets make them pay the price every time they touch the puck.

The Habs response: Yesssss... now we can float around for a whole series and not break any nails. Fantastic.

How exactly does that mean the Habs were outclassed? Neither team threw hits.... You could say the exact same thing about Carolina.

We played the type of game they wanted us to and they beat us at it. That's getting outclassed. Losing to your own devices is another story but that clearly didn't happen this series.

They played similar styles to one another and one team eked out a win in a 6 game series. I'm sorry, but the Habs suddenly changing the style of play they had all year doesn't make sense. Not suddenly becoming the broadstreet bullies doesn't mean you were outclassed.

You may as well say, "Well, the Habs should have taken advantage of the Canes by scoring more goals."

Nice effort from the habs. Carolina was the better team, but the habs played well. Huet was great, but they winner i thought could have easily been stopped. None the less great effort

If you think we were anywhere near as physical this series as we were in the regular season since Gainey took over then you're the one in need of an eyesight check-up. We simply have a roster full of gutless pukes who figured they didn't need to play the body against an awfully feminine Carolina team and they were beat because of it. It was the easy way out so obviously the bums that make up our roster took that road.

So these same gutless pukes were the ones who were the dominating physical beasts in the regular season?

The only physicality shown during the regular season was the players finally started clearing the crease in front of Huet, and when they tried to do that in this series they always ended up a man short.

Tough loss. That goal was a real surprise.

We should have one the first game 2-1 instead of scoring 6 goals. Then maybe Gerber would have been back for game 3!

That's what I don't understand. It's not as if Rivet changed the direction of the shot at all.

Edmonton changed their style too and it worked.

It did enough to give the same effect as a catcher expecting a slider while the pitcher throws a fastball. It makes the catcher look like an idiot.

I don't really think you can compare the two. A pitcher is expecting a certain pitch and placement, whereas Huet doesn't know where it's going. Actually, he should probably be expecting high glove side.

I'm sorry.

I even had a poutine before the game, too. I don't know what's wrong.

They changed from fast flowing to a trap. That's not the same as going from weak to physical. You may as well ask each player to grow and extra set of arms.

A goalie is used to reading where the puck will be by how it leaves the blade of a stick. His reaction starts at that moment. When the puck leaves the stick an unexpected way you have to correct your initial impression and change your motion.

Bouillon was there all along. For some reason he tried to play goaltending instead of putting a stick in front of Recchi's which screened Huet and led to the goal.

That goal had given me game 3 flashbacks. Recchi was checked an only got a weak shot off, and beat Huet short side. Not a good goal, Huet was right on his goal line.

I knew the game was a toss up as soon as it went in. Total momentun shift.
