Who cares if Boston boos the Canadian anthem on Thursday, they didn't in Games 1 & 2. If they do in Game 5, it is obviously because the Habs fans showed no respect for their country.

D-I-S-R-E-S-P-E-C-T-F-U-L !!!!!
Vancouver booed the US anthem 3 years ago against the Avalanche, for basically no other reason than they were losing the series 2-0. What was even more pathetic is the media on TSN and CBC actually tried to justify/rationalize it at the time, saying how they were just reacting to some disparaging stuff a Colorado sportswriter had written about the Canucks (as if that's a good reason to boo a country's anthem - because some hack writer trashed your team), and saying stuff like "well, that's not my style, but people pay money and can do whatever they want". Living in Vancouver at the time I was disgusted. The fans at GM Place tend to be among the worst, most obnoxious Canuck fans, and don't represent the majority of Canucks fans in any way, most of whom are intelligent hockey fans that are enjoyable to watch a game with at the bar and so on.

I think Calgary has shown the most Heart and determination early on in the playoffs then anyone else. I would be scared to play them anytime soon.
