Notes on OT:
Notes on the third:
-Great penalty kill.
-What a crap goal! Lapierre is the weak link here tonight.
-Gomez dropping the gloves for the win is so glorious. He's earned two-thirds of his salary now.
-What the hell is the Caps' mascot supposed to be? It looks like something from a Bugs Bunny cartoon.
-God, it's like being Germany against Team Canada
-When did pinching your man off become interference? I hate the refs.
-Jagr with the go-ahead goal. I'm so glad the Habs signed him.
-Pouliot...if the Caps tie it on this PP, you're a dead man.
-I love Halak, but come ON. That tying goal was atrocious. No, beyond atrocious. It was crippling.
Notes on the second:
-What's with Pouliot and the falling down? It looks like he's got an inner-ear imbalance.
-It seems like the glass in Washington is very low.
-They're all over Plekanec. He can't have a crap without a Cap.
-Hal Gill is doing his thing again tonight. He's pushing people to the outside better than a snobby cheerleader.
-If the Habs could complete a pass, they'd be up by three.
-AK! That's the way to hurt your compatriots!
-I think Muller must have had a bet with Martin about whether the Habs would make the playoffs and the forfeit was that if they made it, Muller would get to coach the team. That's the only explanation for this.
-People say Spatch is fat, but if he is, he's on the Ovy diet now.
-Speaking of whom, if Spacek was going to hit the net once this year, this was the time to do it.
-Aaaaannnd...he doesn't get the goal anyway because AK gets the hatty. No problem. I'm sure Spatch will wait for his first.
-Great call on the hand pass by the Caps. Sometimes they're right on the money.
-Up by two, going into the third, and you can't trust that the Caps won't come back. The Habs have to keep pushing hard.
Notes on the first:
-How lovely would it be to go back to Montreal up 2-0? I'm almost afraid to hope.
-GIONTA! Miniature playoff warrior. He should have his own breakfast cereal or something.
-This must be what soldiers in the trenches felt like while they were waiting for reinforcements. Only, the Habs don't get reinforcements. They just have to wait for the clock to run out.
-Andrei Kostitsyn is like an anti-tank weapon...when he wants to be.
-I'm worried about Varlamov, though. He was really good in the first round last year.
-The fourth line looks a little bit overmatched tonight. They don't have quite the jump they had in game one.
-Bergeron stood Backstrom up like an ugly blind date. He's playing his heart out.
-Dear Bob Gainey, thank you very much for the very nice Spacek you got us in the off-season. It was a bit wobbly at first, but now it's working just fine.
-Good period, all things considered. I want a win so, so badly!
