Didn't look bad on the ice, must have been a skate blade cut or something.

I'm not sure which is worse. The bitter sore loser Bruins' fans we dealt with the last few years or the new improved cocky sore winner Bruins' fans. Whatever, good for the Bruins for taking a big step this year. They do all the things it takes to win.

Over on the other end of the ice, however, gulp, the Habs are a terribly frustrating team. It's not the injuries and it's not the powerplay. This team has been overrated since the offseason. I'm not trying to be the "we should be on a 6 game losing streak" drama queen, but does anyone honestly think we could win the cup? Is there even remotely a chance? I'm not convinced. I think there are too many missing pieces to the puzzle. I wish Bob Gainey had the nuts to address some of these missing pieces and upcoming free-agents right away.

I hope Lang isn't hurt as bad as it looks. He's one of the guys who actually showed up most nights this year. Shame.

I'm not going to play GM and pretend I know what deals need to be made, but I can tell you one thing, this team does not have winner written all over it. That's an understatement.

P.S: Fire Guy Carbonneau !!
It could be worse, he could be completely useless like Sergie Sofitsyn.

Whatever, none of the injured players go to the front of the net anyway.

Welcome back to Montreal, Chipchura.
Hello, Ryan White.

You know what's sad. Andrei Kostitsyn despite getting way less ice time, having to deal with injuries, a slow start, playing on a struggling line for way too many games before Carbo noticed, only has 5 less points then kovalev and 4 more goals.

The last goal by the Bruins pretty much sums up the entire game. A Kost dangling with an empty net..turnover..goal.
Habs are too soft..except for the 1st..we came out banging and we seemed to give up that style of play in the 3rd period.
Hopefully Lang gets back soon because he's the only one who can put the puck in the net.

First of all...the only dirty play out there was the high hit from O'Byrne

Secondly...that was as perfect a game as any team could've played on the road against a skilled team. Difference between Boston and Montreal is that the Bruins can win any style of game. They can win 7-6 and they can win 1-0. They can win an up and down skating game and they can win physical grinding game. Montreal is far too one dimensional. Take away their skill and your result was today's game.

That is why we played amazing. Can't ask for a better game plan if you're an opposing team playing in Montreal

Were you watching at the start of the season when we were beating teams by 3 and 4 goals? We can play any style to suit the team we are playing against. Shut down, run and gun..you name it.

Sorry but day after day the Habs play with no emotion. I honestly don't feel like watching games anymore.

It's getting pathetic. Win or lose we need some emotion.

News about Lang :

According to Infosports, Lang has a lacerated left achilles tendon.

IMO, a injury like that could be 4-6 months.

Dude, even Tampa Bay can neutralize the Canadiens. Don't act like it's some big accomplishment.

His achilles tendon is severed, meaning he's out for the season and the play-offs. I would presume.

Torn left achilles tendon. My physics professor a few years ago had one, and never returned to teach until the next semester. Let's hope it's not that serious.

although I'm not condoning the hit it was retaliation for Latendresse which wasn't as blatantly dirty but just as dangerous.

I really don't know what to think of Carbo anymore.

He helped the team get where it was last year but this year, it seems that his methods don't have any effects on the players anymore. He always has a controversial decision in the making it seems and they aren't paying off this year.

Other than that, his system is really annoying. Gainey built an offense first team and Carbo is not using it to it's potential, like he did in the start on the season. It doesn't help that the guys are floating all game long but that could also be called his failure...

And he's likely done as a Hab. At his age, this could be it for Langer.

I'm surprised he wasn't in even more pain.....that's an extremely painful sounding injury.

Sad how B's fans are trying to make the game out to be something it wasn't. Montreal played terrible and the Bruins got the easy win.

Most Habs fans know enough about hockey to agree that the B's played a great road game today. I think most of the irrational bashing is out of frustration.
