Congrats to the Fans at the Game tonight!!

WOW, I just got a say I am very impressed watching my Habs in Boston. They helped mute the Bruin fans all night. Boston is supposed to be a great city for hockey well I saw a huge fan base for the habs and not the Bruins. This could be looked at as not very important but getting momentum from the crowd is important.
The first period was dominated by the Bruins and the fans helped by not giving that momentum boost when key plays were made.

We lost tonight but never lose faith, this is the best team I have seen in years. The main thing to get out of this game is we played better then them I think after the first period. I would love to see game 4 with that many hab fans in another playoff game in Boston. I never seen that in a playoff series and espically in Boston.

Just goes to show how great our fans are, across all of Canada and maybe a little in the States.

GO HABS GO The drive for 25 is still alive!!!

I just loved hearing the boos for Chara and the lame "U-S-A" response as if Chara was american or as if it was a patriotic thing.

Don't even get me started. It was a world of opposites at the Garden tonight. The guy and (really hot!) girl in front of us were a class act. The father and son behind us were worse than your stereotypical New Englander, chanting "USA" through all the game, "DIVE!" even when penalties weren't called. Pansy and fa**** were some of their favourite words. Oh, and all that was the father. The son was actually worse and kept trying to impress his Dad with worse and worse chants until the point when the Dad told his kid to "shut the hell up" because he was annoying and he was trying to watch the game.

Wow.

If you ever played a sport where people are chanting for you.. you rarely hear the crowd because you are focused in playing

Wow.

Why does everyone think we dive, is it just because we have more skill and not a bunch of thugs????? I have never seen a player dive like the media thinks we do. What is up with that???

Some callers on CKAC said that Boston fans threw Canadiens' fans' hats around the stands, insulted them and even poured beer on their heads.

A few fights broke out and the cops had to interfere.

Class act indeed.

Yeah a bunch of people were escorted out. There were a bunch of giveaway pucks being thrown around and lots of towel snapping.

It was going both ways, but I'm always surprised at how epically retarded large parts of the population are.

That's Boston for ya.

I'd like to see some of those losers come up to Montreal for game 5....They would be lucky to only get beer poured on their heads.

I was there and the USA chants started because they showed the highlights of the USA - Canada women's Championship game.

Where were you sitting? I was down in section 19.

I mean the guys behind us for sure weren't representative, but USA chants and booing the Canadian national anthem weren't crossing the line for them.

I was at the game tonight and you guys sure do travel well. The USA chants are pathetic. I hate it, and got into an argument with a guy next to me about it. This is hockey, not a war of the countries. Not like we are in a war with Canada.

I thought the Bruins fans actually handled the game well. They were louder then usual. They would cheer Chara while the Hab fans booed.

Great game to be at though. I'm just glad we got the monkey off our back.

I should tell the story of the guys in front of us. They arrived late and we had picked up one of those waving towels on the way in. They asked us for ours, and I handed mine to them because, well, the girl had a hot ass and you never know what's going to happen when you're nice.

In return the guy went out to the concession and bought me a beer to start the game. We were joking around a bit during the game, and having tons of fun. I wish the whole world was like that, and equally as hot as this girl.

326 row 2.

The booing of the Canadien Natl anthem ended pretty quickly.

It did start, no question but it seemed like people who were with those that started it hushed them up.

In my section it was probably 70-30 B's - Habs fans and they were pretty much left alone.

Some good natured ribbing but no threats or physical stuff.

I saw a lot of jabbering going both ways, and twice saw people escorted out (3 Bruins fans and 1 Canadien fan). But never saw the beer pouring or the hats being tossed around.

I don't know, I don't play on the B's.

It was nice to watch them win, though.

I'm under no illusions though - there is no way the NHL will allow the B's to win a deciding game in Montreal.

So you guys are good to go.

Hey maybe you can tell me. What the hell were those pucks with parachutes that were being thrown out? Were they foam? Some of the parachutes got tangled up and they dropped like stones.

It really does. I think most Bruins fans know deep down that we won't move on. Don't get me wrong, we'll route to the death for our team. But to win one after losing 12 straight to the Habs is big in B's fans eyes.
