PK Subban is living rent free in the heads of Lucic and Horton.
Horton looks like he's playing with seething animosity... He has zero focus right now. If I'd be Julien, I'd pour a bucket of cold water over his head.

Nice game by the habs, rly abusing that bad rebound thomas gives.

Gomez had a brain fart on bergern's goal, but not that big of a deal.

I guess that's because the Bruins are heavily favored, but here's the thing: Boston has no business being so heavily favored. These guys aren't the Capitals, and these Habs are not last year's Habs. The Bs were pedestrian on puck possession and won the division on the strength of their goaltender having a career year, and their shooting percentage. We've seen enough Habs teams built like that to know that those aren't measures of real strength. Meanwhile, the Habs were very strong in puck possession but had spent most of the years with problems putting the puck in the net. As we see, that sort of thing can be quite volatile. The reality is that these teams were pretty close in real strength all year.

This wasn't to say the prevalent Bruins-in-six prediction was silly. Favoring Boston due to the Habs' injuries was quite justifiable. But favoring them because they were a dominant team who had the Habs crushed in every area of the game was silly.

Truth be told, I hadn't expected the games to go like this, with Montreal taking early leads and Boston having the better of possession. I hope the Habs will have a stronger possession games in the other games, but let's be realistic here: they have spent less than four minutes of the series with the score tied. They've led for 116-plus minutes on the road. That'll get you outshot.
I picked the Habs in 6, not because of an emotional reason but simply because I feel we're better coached, have better leaders, and come into the POs in a much more favorable position (Boston have the pressure of redeeming themselves for last year's major collapse). I didn't expect us to grab the first two games in Boston though.

I did know that our team could rely on Hammer, Spacek, PK and Gill to be absolutely great. Sopel was very good for the Hawks last year, so I knew he would be of service to us as well. My sole question mark on the back end was the Wiz, and I'm quite content so far. With Price in nets, I did feel we had a clear advantage on Defense, and I fully believe in the old saying that Defense wins Championships, so that's why I chose the Habs.

I understand why people would chose the Bruins, given our injuries as you said, but I feel Boston is hugely overrated and Mtl greatly underrated.

I have to give credit to the coaching staff, and Gauthier, he identified important players that, even though different, could bring key things to our team. Sopel and Wiz were great additions. Even if they're not Markov and Gorges, they are very key for us.

Habs have no chance of winning this series, don't get your hopes up.

Bruins win in 6 games, after getting a hold of a water bottle Chara will score the 4 GWG.

Deal with it fellow Habs fans... no chance I tell you.

Who here was begging for Weber's return to the lineup? I was! If AK is back next game why not scratch Pouliot?

2-0 is still hardly safe as we saw vs Carolina and the vs the Rangers over the years. Keep the pedal to the metal boys.

This team is completely different and coached by a much better coach than against Carolina. I would be shocked if we don't win this series.

Good to hear, they are focused and poised.

We need 14 more wins, not just 2!

Chara is the only one who was thirsty by the end of the game. An indicator of the effort by the rest of their choking, cavemen team.
