That is why we played amazing. Can't ask for a better game plan if you're an opposing team playing in Montreal
so why do you lose to non playoff teams?

There is no accountability on this team. Begin is the heart and soul of the team and he's in the pressbox while a half dozen floaters get to play.

We are pretty much on a 6 game losing streak..
The Kings game was a loss in my books..I'm tired of stealing games, we should start winning sometime soon or else forget about the playoffs.

IMO, a injury like that could be 4-6 months.
At his age it could signal the end of his career.

It was to be Expected...

Leaving the Ice on one leg isn't very good looking...

Might been the last Lang's game in the Habs Jersey... and the NHL...

Not even close IMO
D was decent today but our offense didn't generate much scoring chances.

If a series was starting tomorrow it would end in 4 (and 4 goals scored by Montreal)

I did mention Montreal has the fourth-best record in the league when coming into the third trailing?

I thought I had. But by all means, don't let sticky facts like that get in the way of a good heartless-when-losing rant.

I don't know if it's because all of the new people on here are like 10 years old but this board is going downhill fast. I've never seen so many stupid comments from "fans".

fire carbonneau?
All are players are soft?

If we sucked as bad as people here say we do, we'd be in last place right now. Oh I also love the fact that people are bashing our players non-stop like Sergei. I mean he's super young but I guess people around here arent smart enough to grasp simple concepts.

I heard the Sens are looking for some fans. Maybe some of you guys could switch and we could get back a decent board with actual though out comments.

It's also pretty simple to figure out that there was no penalty called because there was nothing wrong with the play.

So the question is, was last year a fluke?

- No more powerplay
- No more Kovalev
- No more "Jesus" Price (actually not his fault, the defense sucks ass)
- No more rookie sensations (Sophmore slumps?)
- No more leading division/conference = 13th spot in eastern conference as predicted last season?

Way to many things happend that makes me wonder if we overachieved. Maybe Gainey's plan is working, but just a bit too early. We have youth that are still developing so I have no doubt that we will be dominant in a few years, but for now... should we be really surprised? After a good year (preceeded by horrible rosters), should we expect more?

My take is that the team played well and with some intensity but couldn't switch to the next level, the Bruins played better but we had better chances of scoring, Thomas was realy great today.

I just hope that team uses this game as an opportunity to rally.

Horrible, horrible news about Lang...the way he fell, I mentioned to my dad that it looked like maybe he got cut by a skate, wish I was wrong. Poor guy, hope he can recover quickly for his sake, and the teams', but this is a career-threatening injury I'd have to think.

Considering we almost lost to the Kings and Sens, lost to the Panthers, Thrashers, and Lightning in the past 10 games, it doesn't take much to beat the Habs at the moment. But if it'll make you guys feel better I'll say Bruins looked unbeatable tonight.

Especially since, despite the losing streak and all, Montreal is still on pace to roughly match last year's standings points.

Again Habs played decently but Boston has a better system.

The trap is very effective against Montreal.

I haven't read through the million posts here today but I just wanted to say that despite this loss Montreal did not play as bad as many here seem to think. Boston scored a couple of ugly goals as they usually do.

I did like Henry and O'Byrne today both are much better then Brisebois.
I'd as far as to say I'd rather have both of them in the lineup over even Boullion.

I'd still like to see Gainey acquire another big D and a preferably a big C or big scoring Winger ala Tkachuk.

Yeah, I hope so too. Tonight we actually played well I thought. I guess most posters thought otherwise.

So Lang's salary likely comes off the book, no?

Exactly. Even with all these issues, the team is consistently among the best in the East in the standings.

No, but his cap space becomes available for a replacement player as long as he is on LITR -- which is subtly different, but the take-home message is that they have space to add someone.
