Looking Back.. Playoffs 2006

I was watching some old Montreal games and it got me thinking.. do you think Montreal would of won the series, maybe the cup had Koivu not had the freak injury against the Canes?

Up 2-0 then lose 4 straight.

I always thought if we would have beat the Canes in 06 or Tampa in 04 we would have gone all the way to the cup. Call me a homer but those two times it felt like the Habs were a team of destiny. I recall one particularly mistake in both series that will give me nightmares forever.

In 2006, I felt we had a pretty strong team! We might have gone all the way to the cup! God damn Willams, that ********!

But in 2004, Tampa DESTROYED us in 4 games! We had absolutly no chance given the lineup we iced and the one they iced!

Beating the Bruins was unexpected. I felt we could do anything from then on. And every games against Tampa was not easy for them, even if it looks bad. I will always remember whathisname not clearing the puck....

Wasn't the overtime goal in game 3 by Staal on a 5-on-3 with Souray breaking his stick at the same time? Such ****ing ********. I hate thinking about that series. 20 minutes away from a guaranteed win.

I'm quite convinced that we would've beaten Carolina if Koivu hadn't gotten injured.

We won both games and were doing well in Game until the incident. Then the momentum changed

Game 3 finished in a horrible way,Souray and Huet screwed up for the game tying goal.That game should have ended 1-0 or 2-0 instead they came back and win 4 strait.

I hate Carolina

Avec des si on va Paris.

So I guess with if you go to... Cardiff?

IMHO, Buffalo was the best team in the year that year and I don't think Montreal would have gotten past them. Carolina was insanely lucky they did, but then again, that was par for the course.

Carolina always have a golden horse shoe up their a**es everytime they play us. We have the sh**iest luck anytime we play Caroline regular season or playoffs, can't friggin' explain it...

Williams should have got 5 mins for high sticking, 5 mins for intent to injure, 10 mins misconduct and a game misconduct, a trip to the NHL and a full year suspension.

we have lost that serie because Ward was stopping everything and that's why Carolina won the Cup that season . He was named MVP of the playoffs .

Our wins were againts Gerber ( ) our losts againts Ward .

even when the habs lost koivu, they still were up by a goal in the last half of the game... just minutes away from a 3-0 series lead.

Besides the koivu injury, I think the series turned on a glove save by ward on ribeiro... it was basically a wide open net.

I wasnt happy with the way the canes were allowed to crash the net in that series. Neither the refs or habs did anything about it.

As for the OT series clincher, didn't it deflect off rivet's stick and rocket into the top corner? I dunno if I can blame Huet on that one.

I'm not sure if it was 5 on 4 or 5 on 3, but the call on Plekanec was a load of horse****.

The habs got a dbl minor for high-sticking JUST after the missed call on Koivu. That's when Carolina scored the tying goal.We are talking about 8 minutes of a game that were affected by these imbecile and clueless refs...

To me , that was the turning point....

Still really get,s my blood flowing when i think back about it ...

I swear, if I ever come across this Denis LaRue guy ..... I'll definitely let him know what I think. I hate him more then Fraser

I think so. It was the major turning point.

---

I hate Carolina. Playoff in (2002 I believe). We have just upset Boston, we are winning 2-1 the series against Carolina I believe and are about to make it 3-1, when Kerry Fraser calls a bench misconduct that totally changes the series once again....(Feel free to correct me on the facts, I'm about only sure about Fraser ruining that year)

I was mad pissed and I'm still pissed. Ten years from now, I won't remember why, but I will still hate Carolina and surely, Justin Williams. I laughed when I heard he was injured for many months and was heartily happy.

I was even happy when he got destroyed on a hit and a fight with a Bruin player lately.

Maybe win the series, but certainly not farther than that. The Habs would have lost to the Sabres who iced an offensive juggernaut.
