Of course the Habs can trap at home if they get the lead. If they do score first, I hope they play the same way as they did in these 2 games.

they might but they will also feed off the crowd and try to skate the bruins out of the rink too

Love the Montreal style right now, really frustrating Boston.

Most telling stats IMO, shows how much the Habs are locking down the neutral zone.

Bruins should come out flying. Though, they may have to withstand a hab frenzy before they can counter. Should be a good game on Monday.

So now that Boston is down 2-0, some want Rask in? Sure, that'll help to score more than just one goal in the last two games. It should also help with the turnovers department too.

I got a better idea. It's called; dress Seguin.

Stop with the sitting Thomas idea. He's been stellar. It's his team that hasn't been playing like they should.

The Habs has learnt to play and win without Markov. The Bruins did not have Chara absent for too long during the season. If Chara is not 100%, the Bruins is not going to win this series.

I wonder if MaxPac feels sorry for Chara being forced to miss a critical hockey game.

Most Bruin fans recognize this, sadly the one who makes the decisions (Julien) does not.

Seguin instantly brings speed/creativity... both are lacking on this team right now... as is the player with the best of those qualities on the team. Makes no sense.

The Crowd is going to be insane in Montreal. If Chara doesnt dress, I think this series is over.

Thomas sure doesnt look like a Vezina goalie right now. Seems really nervous.

Montreal looks calm. Boston looks panicky.

Eye-opening difference between the two teams today, as well as the series as a whole: EXPERIENCE!

The only Bruin with a cup is Recchi. There are tons of B's with no playoff experience at all going into this round. And the leader was out.


Meanwhile, the Habs, coming off their long run of last season, has more many more cup winners and finalists, including a multi-cup-winning leader, and so they are all more aware of what it takes to get the job done in the playoffs.

This edge the Habs have over the B's and the teams they defeated in the last playoffs i guess has been fairly underrated. But now it's quite obvious.


Not all is over for the B's yet. Need more blocked shots, better puck control, better decisions with the puck, better discipline. Christ... Better COACHING! Oh... And how 'bout Thomas... Oh i dunno... MAKING A SAVE?!?

Also pick up the speed. Montreal is generally skating circles around the B's defense before they're able to collapse. Time to get a handle on the series already!

It might be time to split up the top line, since they've accomplished jack-all so far. Promote Bergeron! He is a much better all-round player than Krecji. Where did that 7-1 beatdown come from? Remember that and execute.

Wrong.

The list isn't long, but that is an incorrect statement.

After a quick look it appears it's Recchi and Thornton. That's it.
