Hawks vs.Habs - Clinch Edition

Notes on the third and OT:

-Pleks would have so many more assists if his linemates hate even a vague intention of finishing.

-If Moen's getting paid by the number of puck battles he wins on the boards, he's using the food bank on the weekends.

-This is hurting my heart in a similar way to playoff hockey.

-Pyatt and Moen on a break. Now, there's a threat.

-Toews just stole the go-ahead goal from AK. But at least Kostitsyn was in a position to get robbed.

-Then Crawford steals the go-ahead goal from AK.

-Then AK gets boned by the refs on a marginal holding call that'll probably decide the game. I hate the refs.

-Nope. Solid kill. Whew.

-Why couldn't THIS be the game I attended?

-This is the kind of game in which you could forgive Gomez a lot if he'd score the winner.

-Two minutes to go. I swear to God, if there's a penalty call now, I'm committing reficide.

-I swear I wrote "third and OT" before the period even started.

-If this goes to shootout, I fear Toews.

-What a play by Subban on Toews! He's the only Habs' D who could have possibly made that play.

-And then he scores the goal. I've been revived about nine times tonight.

Notes on the second:

-This game is really even so far. Even the PP ends up in a 4-on-4.

-Nobody's really getting into Crawford's space. Habs should be crowding him like a Tokyo subway.

-Cammalleri finds twine off a killer pass by AK. Those guys are hopefully getting into playoff form.

-Immediately after the goal, Pouliot had a couple of great two-on-one chances, saw the other one was Moen and just shot.

-What a piece of crap call on Kostitsyn, who by, the way, has been connecting on passes with micro-surgery accuracy tonight.

-Price saved his own ass. Physician, heal thyself!

-P.K. is the picture of guilt on his way to the box after taking a DOG penalty. Catholics could meditate on him during Lent.

-Price is auditioning for the role of "Jaro Halak" in the play "Habs Playoff Chances."

-Other than the Darche gaffe on the Kane goal, the period has been a real playoff special. Anyone's to take in the third.

Notes on the first:

-Wow! Just saw the stat that Subban is two goals shy of the team record for rookie Ds. What a nice coup it would be for him to beat out Lapointe!

-Ugh. Early on, Mopel is looking more lost than the cast of Lost.

-Non-hockey-watching spouse: "Don't worry. We got Gomez."

-Does Pierre Houde not know Gionta's name has three syallables? He calls him "John-Ta"

-Great up and down action. The Habs look like a playoff team here.

-Subban just trying to do too much gets called. We forget he's just a kid.

-Not good. Seventy-six trombones led the big parade (to the box.)

-Habs are looking competitive, but they have to stop being stupid if they're going to win this.

What fantastic hockey! This is the game we all love. And they won too. Subban bounces off Price like a rag doll. I guess it's all the padding he's wearing. So good to see the joy of these two young guys. It's gotta be catching. Playoffs baby. I take back all my negative comments. I love these guys.
