Notes on the third:
-If they're going down, I hope they go down swinging.
-I wonder if there's a Hab dirty enough to slash Staal's foot? Probably not.
-See Martin? See what happens when you actually put your Darche on the line?
-Letang! Thanks, man. Your compatriots will stand you a beer later.
-Boarding on Gionta? Seriously? That's like putting down a savage chihuahua.
-I can't believe this one-sided reffing. I just can't.
-Andrei Kostitsyn looks glad his pain-in-the-ass brother has been banished. This is the best he's played since his hat-trick in Washington.
-Lapierre and Darche were channelling the Flying Frenchmen in that period. There are new heroes every night.
-I think I broke a bone in my hand clapping when Jaro cleared it with ten seconds to go.
-It's on now, Bettman.
Notes on the second:
-You know you're the underdog when: MAB is on the PK.
-Is it me, or do Pens powerplays seem to last a really long time? Maybe it's just because there are so many of them.
-Well-timed bump of the net by Gorges. Good thing the ref didn't see that.
-The only thing the Habs PP did was give Malkin two minutes of rest.
-There are a lot of infractions being let go here. Most of them by Penguins. Not that I'm a conspiracy theorist or anything, but this isn't very balanced.
-Completing more than one pass in a row would be really helpful. This is like building a Lego house when all you've got are the single squares.
-In twenty minutes we'll know if the Habs are playing next week or not.
Notes on the first:
-Amazing. You couldn't even hear Halak's name during the introductions. Subban's ovation was almost as loud.
-Testy start. Looks like the Habs are walking a tightrope between guarding against defensive mistakes and trying to jump on offensive chances. It's a tough way to make anything happen.
-Well, if someone's gonna score a craptacular goal like that, I'm really, really glad it's our team. Once again, the eternal truth: Good things happen when you put it on the net.
-Brutal play on the Dupuis goal. Not PK's fault though; he had the legs taken out from under him.
-Gill has GOT to stay out of the box. Apparently, he's the only one who can kill penalties. That PP goal should never have happened, though, if the proper call had been made on the little whining bitch when he tripped Hamrlik. Awful calls, and awful luck.
-Fleury is perfectly protected because the Habs can't even get into his zone at all, never mind with sustained pressure.
-How many times have we seen this game this year? Can't get it out of their own zone, can't get it into the other team's. Sigh.
-Does Gomez EVER score when he finds himself in the clear?
-Wonderful. Gill breaks the whiny little bitch's stick, so he'll sit. PP goal for them coming up to start the second.
-Six shots. Six. They're getting murdered.
