Am I the only Habs fan who is having trouble breathing?? I don't like leading by "just" one goal... need another here to start the 3rd!!
So you think the Bruins have been saving it for the end.. we'll find out soon!
@Lawrence... I think consensus to this question: many Stanley Cups have the Canadiens won since the last Leafs win? is 9.
But you can prove us wrong! Send us some data :)
Dom-- they're saying the Bruins will pick it up in the 3rd... What's your take/
Love that stat from @LouisJean
It will be hard to generate scoring chances. Canadiens will play "the trap". Meaning they will position themselves defensively to prevent any movement in the middle of the ice.
KEY TO WINNING #1 FOR THE HABS: The Specialists: Special teams are often the difference in any playoff game, but the Canadiens will find out just how important they really are when they meet the Bruins in the conference quarterfinals. Boston led the league with 177 goals 5-on-5 this season, but when it comes to the power play, the Habs have the advantage, capitalizing on a seventh-best 19.7% of their chances to the Bruins’ 16.2%.
KEY TO WINNING #3 FOR THE HABS: Whitewashes: Based on the performances of Carey Price and Tim Thomas this season, the Habs and Bruins might need to be more focused on scoring at all than just scoring first. Thomas and Price finished two-three in the NHL with nine and eight shutouts, respectively, this year. Thomas also led the league with a .938 save percentage and 2.00 goals-against average while Price tied for first with 38 wins.
I have a feeling they're playing for #67 too @Yasmina
Oh my god, you guys sound like rejected Hallmark cards
@Yasmina, I'm sure you're right. Chara told media this week that he talked with Pacioretty. Do you think it was an effort to avoid being such a target?
What channel's the debate?
Still 13 minutes left Dom
@ lbass007 and everyone -- lbass007 has just submitted a record of Canadiens wins to big to post here--- I'll post it at the end of the game for you to see. Then the truth will come out!
