I just trashed my house after they scored that goal.... WHY IS BRISEBOIS AND ****IN DANDENAULT ON THE ICE. Ryder.. Ryder.... RYDER thats all i need to say about him, absolutely terrible. 1st Line ... doesn't seem inspired, second line is carried by a rookie in SK and Higgins is playing alright but ryder.. (WE NEED KOIVU) Why is lats on the ice at all... and why does dandenault have the priviledge of wearing the CH. Same goes for Brisebois. I'm not as mad that we lost, i'm just mad that they looked like they didn't care. Carey Price has allowed this game to go to OT twice in a row now, he's been outstanding and so has kostopoulus. Stupid penalty at the end. Memories of Carolina are just flying back and forth in my head. We NEED to dominate the next game, play better then we have all season and dominate it, the ruins think they can win? Demolish all thoughts. Bring em back to the Bell center and shake there hands and get ready for series 2. GO HABS GO PLAY LIKE YOU CARE.

Also, I don't know what some people saying game 4 is a must win are smoking.
Here's what I'm smoking: if the series goes back to Montreal tied, the pressure goes onto Montreal and it becomes a very difficult game for them. If they lose that one, then they face elimination on Boston ice. This is a young team and it would be a tough blow for their confidence.
A win in game 4 avoids this nasty scenario and puts control of the series right back into the Canadiens' hands. While a team can come back from a 3-1 lead, it's a commanding plateau from which Montreal can play game 5 with confidence.
Where is Plekanec? Why is Kovy not controlling the game ? Where is the PP? We needed 4 straight PP's to win the previous game. How oblivious can you be?
It could easily be 2-1 Boston.
Some things definitely need to be fixed for Tuesday. But we will lose games like this, it doesn't mean the serie is over for us. They were the better team and a lot of our players didn't show up. But look at how the Bruins bounced back from Game 1 to Game 2. We will do the same on Tuesday.
...that linesman for killing the Habs chance when he stopped the puck at the blue line. Once again the NHL's conspiracy to hold back Canadian teams shines through. Hahahahaha. Just kidding, be interesting to see how the Habs react.
*** are all those comments about Brisebois and Dandenault out?
You seriously think that's because of them we lost ???
Wow ...just wow.
Brisebois was actually solid and Dandy well...was Dandy (a 4th liner).
We lost because
1.Bruins outworked us.
2.Our PP was abysmal
3.Our first line was actually our worst line.
4.Thomas played well
Yet the solution is to bench Brisebois and Dandenault.
ok...I'm just happy HFBoards don't coach the team.
Yes it is. 'Cause as much as our first line is bad, would you then bench them? Why would wanting to bench a player automatically means he's the reason for the lost? Tons of players play badly, still you can't bench them all and you know that Carbo will make chances. And you also know who the black aces are. So that's why I want to bench Brisebois. You cannot think you can win games with d-men like Brisebois and Streit on D. Have you actually noticed that Markov played 30 minutes tonight? Is it 'cause we have a great top-6 right now? So it has to start by benching somebody.
So even if all your reasons are true, and they are, what do you do if you're the coach? Stay put and don't try to bring some new blood in the lineup? Like you did all season long?
Yeah, they suck, they always suck. Nothing we can do about that.
We didn't play well, we let Boston play their game and we lost.
Exactly... The Bruins played better and deserved the win...It was bound to happen sooner or later.Even though the Bruins played better the Habs still had their chances to make it 3-0 in this series.Thomas was the difference in OT and played a very good game...On to game 4........
I understand what you mean, but he is saying is that we got overplayed two games in a row. That's what scares a bit everyone in here.
Allright, fair enough. I just wish some posters would stop with the over the top negativity. It looks bad on all of us.
I think we need Koivu back in order to dominate the Bruins like we did earlier in the season, otherwise the rest of this series is going to be a grind. I'd also like to see Dandenault and Ryder sit with Streit and Stewart replacing them and O'Byrne taking Streit's place on D.
Everyone's overreacting. The game was evenly fought. This was a tossup and the B's had the bounce tonight.
Everybody's gotta layoff Kovalev as well. The guy is getting rag-tagged out there and he's skating carrying a Bruin or two on his back.
Our faceoff was once again very mediocre and our powerplay abysmal. I can't wait till Koivu comes back. If they can't get that going, the Bruins will have a big chance in taking this series. Unless they like these tight nail-biting game they better start converting. A successful powerplay unit ends this series, PERIOD. I'm sure Carbo realizes that and it should be prioritized.
