Notes on OT:
-OT certainly favours the Bs, whose depth will figure into this. The Habs are old and depleted on D, and that will hurt.
-If I were a Hab, I wouldn't want to shake Chara's hand. Or any of them, really.
-One goal for the season. This is too much.
-Price has given his team every possible chance to win this. He's answered whatever questions have been asked of him.
-And one last OT loss to put the season to bed. Devastating, but not unexpected.
Notes on the third:
-Wiz looked shaky on D in the first, but his offence really helped keep the pressure on in the second. I hope he survives the third.
-This is giving me ulcers.
-Cheap shot by Ference on Halpern, and another Hab has to go to the quiet room.
-The Bs have been offside so many fortuitous times tonight.
-And, in perfect harmony with the rest of the Habs year, Hamrlik is taken out of the play with an uncalled elbow and a former Sen picks up the go-ahead rebound.
-I'm not sure which I hate more, Gomez or Martin for playing him so damn much. He's minus three again tonight. I just can't believe him.
-I wish NHL teams could pick up guys from eliminated squads. I'd give a lot to have Jonathan Toews in the Habs lineup tonight.
-Cammalleri, with the tying goal on his stick decides to pass. And that's how it's gone.
-Well, you can't say they didn't have a chance. A PP with two minutes to go.
-And SUBBAN WITH THE BOMB!!! Holy crap.
-Losing faceoffs is hurting them so much.
-OT in Game Seven. I can't take it.
Notes on the second:
-I wish Kostitsyn would use his huge, hairy gorilla arms to score a couple of goals. Do you think he understands the term "contract year?"
-Nice flurry to start the second, negated by a dumbass Eller crosscheck.
-Plekanec couldn't have chosen a better time to cash a breakaway if he'd been allowed to write the script himself.
-How on earth did Krejci miss a wide open net? Man, the Habs D is terrible.
-I'm not sensing any real hate between these teams anymore. They're more worried about their own fortunes than they are about each other.
-Price is a bit scary, going for pucks that end up in battles with Bruins.
-Gomez continues to be the worst Hab on the ice, including the hundred-year-old defencemen. Closely followed by Kostitsyn.
-Twenty minutes for the season. What a ride!
Notes on the first:
-I'm nervous because I'd love a Habs win, but at the same time, I'm calm because whatever happens, they did their best. It's a weird feeling.
-I hope Krejci is available to play for Team Czech at the World Championships. They could really use him.
-The Boston anthem singer sounds like he's gargling William Shatner.
-Wow, Mike Cammalleri has a big head. Literally, huge. Almost as big as Marchand's nose.
-First blood to the Bs. Gomez sucks. He's softer on the boards than a feather duster.
-Spacek and Sopel are terrible together. Oh, for the days of even half a Markov.
-It's looking like it was a mistake to play Wiz while he's hurt. He's pretty ineffective under pressure.
-2-0, and again Gomez is on the ice being useless. It's one thing to lose. It's another to lose because your friggin' millionaire is wretched.
-Could Weber be the Thomas Killer? Three playoff goals in his career, all against Timmy. Beautiful shot.
-Gomez' line is losing every battle against everyone.
-Great PK at the end of the period. The Habs will have to spill their guts to tie this in the second, and Price will have to shut it down.
