    Can we not be blown out game 1. Still have flashbacks of being excited for semis in 2010/2014 and proceed to see 6-0 and 7-2 losses.

    I don’t look at Vegas’ roster and think “Wow, they’re stacked”. Their center line is ok and they have Stone and Pacioretty to score. I don’t see the mismatch.

    They have Theodore and Pietrangelo in the backend that represent PMD we don’t have.

    Then its Fleury.

    Am I supposed to believe that this team is unbeatable?

    Called Habs in 7 against TO
    Called Habs in 6 against Jets.
    Calling Habs in 6 against Vegas.
    Suzuki comes back to haunt them.
    Caufield is huge in this series.
    MAF is replaced at some point in the series.
    CP goes into God mode once again.
    Perry is Perry.

    In 2010 and 2014, the habs were coming off of emotional 7 games series, so I assume they didn't have alot of resting time. I actually remember they played game 1 in 2014 in the afternoon as well.

    Let's just hope hope price plays extremely well and doesn't get knocked out of the lineup this time.

    God i hope not. Don’t want Bergevin listening to Gainey’s way of building team. He loved to much his smurfs.

    Petry is a much better skater than either Theodore or Pietrangelo. If Petry can't go, that's a huge hole on our defence that will be hard to fill. An already overall slow defence loses its most dynamic skater.

    So far in these NHL playoffs...

    Teams winning game one have won 8 of 12 series (was 19 of 23 in last summer's playoffs).

    Teams with 'home ice advantage' have won 3 of the 12 series.

    Will like the Habs chances of making it a good series if they can win game one.

    Will be interesting to see who sits when they come back.

    I assume Merrill will take Romanov's spot and then get scratched when Petry comes back (unless Gustafsson sits?).

    For Evans, I have no idea as I don't see the 4th line changing and Byron has scored a big goal. Maybe Anderson?

    I think that's just DD messing with LV's game plan... I mean if he can't go next game, he won't be there all series... it's been a week, the swelling should have gone by now... it's just trying to play threw the pain.

    I'm not sure cause we are playing a different structure where we don't really want our D to rush up too much due to not wanting to make a mistake and give odd man rushes the other way. I think the biggest lost is his size and smarts in our own end.

    Yes. I've enjoyed the last month more than anything in many, many years. Maybe the Boston-Hens good series of the mid 2010's when we had an electric Subban?

    I kind of think the same. If he's not ready for Monday after over a week off, when will he? He's going to play with pain and discomfort regardless so expecting him to take chances and rush the puck and be on our PP is high hopes anyways. The value he get with him in our line-up at this stage is his big body and mobility to contain others in our own end.

    Habs might just save him and insert him after a loss. Romanov played well last game so they might want to let him ride that confidence. Like I said, at this stage, Petry's injury limits his high end offensive upside

    OK, so now, Ben Brunet mentioned at noon that Price and Patioready don't like each other. Marc Denis had alluded to that too.

    First time I hear of this. You guys?

    I agree with you. Getting to the playoffs and upsetting the Leafs who were a good team even without Tavares is a good result for us. 2nd round and beyond is gravy at this point and I love it. We got zero expectations and this roster is out to play like a team and prove doubters wrong.

    Merrill is so goddamn slow.

    Romanov > Merrill

    The misfits line is excellent. Alex Tuch is a force. So that's 3 lines that can come in waves. Alec Martinez is also good. Brayden McNabb is now on their 3rd pair, where he always should have been.

    It's a good team. But we have the potential to be good too. Sty li es make fights. Remember when we were absolutely useless, nothing. A bunch of nobodies skating in quick sand when we played Calgary this year? I look forward to seeing how we size up.

    I picked us in 7. Hope our speed and the solid play of the 4th line can keep them on their heels. Tatar or Evans may need to come in for Byron to give that 3rd line some offensive spark. Though tatar may create a defensive train wreck.
