Nope, I agree with some. The Sens did NOT play the perfect game.
it's not that the Habs did not deserve their 5 it's that the Sens did not deserve their 0 penalties. It's not that the Sens got a goal refused but don't forget that huge quick whistle while the Habs had possession at the net. Leclaire stood on his head and the refs did the rest. But I have to remember Halak has stoned 4 teams in a row so Leclaire did it to the Habs.
He's actually not a whiny coach at all. He was asked a question by our idiot media here in Ottawa and he answered it. Also, he talked about it once, and that was it. He actually has a reputation of being a quiet coach during a game.
The real question you should be talking about is not about the reffing, but how on earth you guys lost to a team that is missing the whole 1st line due to injuries.
Funny because we beat you 4-1 not too long ago without Gionta, Markov and Spacek....
This. Can't wait for Hamrlik and Mara to return. Bergeron can play on the fourth line and O'Byrne can return to the press box. He hasn't impressed these past few games.

That was brutal.
I wish he had slowed down and allowed Sergei to get up in the play to make it a 2-on-0.

True. That's what killed us also. If we had netted at least one of those other opportunities that we missed, the game might've had a different result.

All I know is that a few teams have had a game where they haven't had a powerplay at all. The Sens have had three games like that, and now the Habs have had two games like that with tonight's game.

It's normal. We always take over that building whenever the Habs are in Ottawa. It's like their second home.
