Another great game by the Habs...wow...Ever think they would have out shot and out hit and out played the Bruins in a playoff game this year? Long, long way to go...Video session for Montreal today should point out how the Bruins have essentially two main offensive plays; work the perimeter to the point, find a lane with traffic - or - hit the trailer whether it be odd man rushes or even if defending team is back with numbers, the B's slip a trailer in the high slot between the seam and the find him time and time and time again. Habs have to come back in man to man not zone. But very impressive...
Comments from Krug and Hamilton were laughable after game two..Loved Price throwing the puck at Krug...Like him a lot but that was idiotic..Ironically they both went down like bowling balls after the skirmish with Gallagher...also laughable.....Good non-call on PK at the end. Clearly there was no way to discernibly tell he did that deliberately. Especially after ignoring about 20 slashes and spears by the Bruins, 'that crap' lol.....
But, one thing for sure, this series is far from over. The Bruins are one of the best teams not only this year but in the past five seasons. They are incredibly resilient. Series has been great. Living up to all the billing...

Great series! One of the best I have ever seen.

The divisional set up was more difficult on the Ottawa Senators this year, in terms of making the playoffs. But, it sure does make for compelling hockey!

A friend of mine pointed out the other day that Boston could end up playing only original six teams in the playoffs this year, even if they advance to the Finals. I wonder what the odds are on that happening?

Odds would be slim although we may see more of it at least in terms of one or two Original Six series given five of the six are in the East. It's added something to the process no question.
