    You know what. I think they have a better D than us but offensively is pretty much similar. We have a better goalie. I think it will be pretty tough for us to score on this D. Pietrangelo, Martinez, McNabb, Theodore is a darn good top 4. But hey, our forechecking is A1 so we never know how a defense will react to it.

    All the talk about heavy and fast Vegas against big and slow defense in Montreal, our best defenseman against dump and chase is named Carey Price, you better do a perfect dump or it is his puck.

    This his how the Jets lost, their favorite zone entry disappeared, Toronto was a lot more trouble.

    Wonder if their fans will drop 'accidental' posts here too, like Fig fan did.

    We should send @Habano to rile them up. Weren't you the one who was rubbing it in the previous series? You'd be like our parachuted Ranger.

    I agree.

    Vegas shouldn't have a full house. It's a superspreader event.

    Fauci should bust in and shut that down.

    This is not the Covid thread. But yeah, it is a scary virus.

    Vegas obviously isn't taking it as serious as us...

    Hence, Habs in 7.

    Yeah, this would be like : hey, this is the ONLY trophy this 110 year old franchise never won. Let's get it just for the shits and giggles. It would become a great hockey trivia question.

    Super tough matchup for the Habs.

    Vegas is very deep and plays hard and fast.

    I'm nervous now. What if this series reach 7 games? What if they beat Vegas?

    I'm going in Gaspesia with my girlfriend in a remote area to hike and camp in the wilderness from the 25th of June to the 2nd of July.... Changing my plan is a no-no. Can you imagine missing a game 7th or the Stanley Cup final? Why the Habs are so unpredictable?!

    Vegas in 5. First time facing a good team in these playoffs will bring the overachieving Habs back down to earth.

    Hopefully with the game on Monday that means Petry will be 100% or close to it.

    The major advantage is playing the system perfectly. Every player have to beleive and execute Ducharme's system. And Price stop the puck. Fleury is a mystery. That playoff will be tough for the Habs, they will suffer.

    DD will try to keep it low event and lean on Carey and hopefully lull Fleury to sleep. Then we can inch our way into their zone and have our bottom 6 outscore their slow D and keep Tuch, Roy, Carrier's speed/size out of the equation. Against their top 6, just guard against the counter. I can see this going 7, especially with a rested and hot Carey and our big D vs their big forwards. Stylewise, we are better suited to play them than the Avs. But they're an excellent team and well coached.

    "Colorado and Vegas was such an exciting series! Montreal won't be able to keep up!"

    Nah, Montreal just isn't going to play run and gun hockey with Vegas like Colorado tried to. Good teams tend to play down to their competition in this league and that's why there's so much parity.

    Fleury is definitely mortal. He let in a couple of goals in the last two games alone that were super suspect. It just depends if our offense keeps rolling or if it cools off.

    It's going to be tough. But I am jazzed. Let's go.

    I think Vegas are too much on a pedestal.

    Arizona, SJ, LAK, ANA…IMO with what the Sens showed this year, those 4 teams are weaker then anything we have in the North division.

    Habs have more trouble with teams playing the same style had them, 4 lines hockey with speed and a good system. It was apparent especially vs Calgary.

    Vegas also has some trouble with other deep teams. Looking at the regular seasons matchup in the last 2 seasons, we see that Habs are 4-0, including 3 OT/SO wins so really tie games in these cases.

    I think with the way our depth and D has been playing, the scoring chances will be pretty evenly spread between the 2 teams, maybe slightly to the advantage of Vegas. Maybe like game 1 and 5 vs Toronto.

    It will come down to Price vs Fleury. I think MAF will be “over motivated” and not calm enough to perform well, he’s been just very inconsistent in his career vs the Habs and I’m sure this stems from added pressure he puts on himself.

    No matter the result, I think people will eat crow (again) for thinking this was going to be an easy series. I don’t think there’s a single player in VGK locker room who thinks that.

    Canadiens in 7

    Previous predictions

    - Habs to make PO and finish 3rd in the division during pre season

    - Leafs in 6 in round 1

    - Habs in 6 in round 2

    I’ll make an amendment to this prediction.

    If Petry misses more then 1 game, my prediction become void and I’ll take Vegas in 6.

    Petry will be extra important as they have a 1-2-2 trap and we need puck carrying D to draw them out of it, so we can get the line and dump on their slow D, which will break their nz structure (but DeBoer is a tactical genius, so this will be difficult). Kulak will be important too, and maybe Romanov or Gustafsson. Suzuki was our main exit guy last series, but Danault also. We have some puck carriers who can break a trap. Winning one of the first two in Vegas will be tough as they have momentum and will be rested. Have to hope that slowing down the game will annoy them. Take it down to the trenches and make it not fun. I'm surprised the bookies are disrespecting Price so hard.
