Game 1 against Pittsburgh all over again. We need to get our feet wet but boy it'd be nice to actually lead a series at some point after game 2. A split is now very needed and we can do it but for some reason this team gets manhandled by the Flyers and they get ALL the bounces in the playoffs against us. 2008 was one of the flukiest 5 game losses ever. Everything we threw at them seemed to be stopped by Biron while when Price wasn't whiffing, they were getting goals off legs, arms, hands, skates, posts, EVERYTHING.
We need to learn to score more garbage goals and get a top player other than Gio or Cammy going. Pouliot, Andrei, Gomez and now Plekky are killing the team with their lack of goal production. 3rd and 4th lines have done enough but these four are not putting the puck in enough. Plus, 2 goals from the D all playoffs? Come on, man! But it's just 1 game. Anyone who buries the Habs after this one is an idiot, though there clearly is precedent for us to have big time trouble. I expect a much better game 2 and a team pumped for their home games (we've been getting a lot better at home as the playoffs have gone along). Nothing's over!
