Habs will clinch tonight with Price having a first star performance in Boston!
That's what it's going to take...the question shouldnt be whether or not the Habs can clinch tonight, it's whether or not our best players (the one's we have healthy) can be better than theirs.
They can, but it'll take a monumental effort...Habs can't have lapses of concentration, they've got to play a clean game in the mistakes area, a boring road game where they take the crowd out early. The Bruins are going to push hard early, if the Habs can survive the first 10 mins or so unscathed, they should be fine.
- special teams
if the Habs can win both of those categories, I like their chances
Lucic won't take on laraque...it's not going to happen. Go look at his fight card, he's taken on 2 heavy's in his career, Ivanans + Boulton (I don't really consider Boulton a heavy) and he lost both of them.
He's an awesome player, and i'm actually a big fan...but he picks and chooses his opponents, only fighting those he knows for sure he can handle. He wont go toe to toe with someone who can throw em' as well as he can.
