Notes on the third:
-I think if they lose this game, it might be time for the Habs to take their bow for the crowd. They've got nothing to be ashamed of this spring.
-It would be easier to score goals if anybody could actually complete a pass. It's amazing that they just can't connect on a simple pass.
-Flyers are doing a great job at getting their sticks in front of Habs' shots.
-Delay of game is the worst penalty in hockey, but if that's the only one the Habs can draw, I'll take it.
-I'm glad the fans aren't booing at least. That would be hard to take right now.
-I can't take the shutouts. Leighton is getting way too much credit. The Habs are handing him glory on a gold-plated, shutout platter. This is horrible.
-It's all on Martin, for not wearing the lucky tie.
-I wanted them to go down swinging. They went down with a bad case of impotence instead.
-Sigh. Curse. Sigh. Curse. Sigh. Curse...
-I take comfort from the fact that the Flyers will be destroyed by the Hawks in the Finals anyway.
Notes on the second:
-Damn fine goal by Giroux. Gill and Gorges just got outraced.
-This smells suspiciously like Game Two. Lots of forechecking by the Flyers and nobody in red driving the net. I don't know if thye're tired, but the Habs are second to every loose puck.
-Well, you knew the rookie would get burned sooner or later. Subban's gonna be great, but he's going to have some very painful growing pains.
-It'd be easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for the Habs to get a shot on goal. Seriously. ONE shot in twenty minutes? That's brutal.
-I'm afraid the Habs are out of miracles.
Notes on the first:
-Well, if the Habs win this one, they'll be beating the best the Flyers have to throw at them and they'll deserve it.
-Oh no! Jacques the Knife isn't wearing the lucky tie. Gulp.
-Lapierre enjoys watching the pre-game show on the big screen. I hope he likes being the hero as much.
-Easy for Laperierre to play dirty when he's wearing the full cage like that.
-Canadiens are looking a bit too hard for the perfect play, I think. They need to stop thinking about prom-queen goals and go for the raunchy stripper ones.
-It always amazes me that a little guy like Pyatt can win the puck off the boards as consistently as he does, while some huge guys can't do it.
-Pleky's looking for the giant python that took a chunk out of him sometime during the Caps series.
-Hal Gill giveth, and Hal Gill taketh away. The man is a human retaining wall.
-Nice period. First goal is going to carry immense significance.
