Bruins-Habs Game 6: TOW Everything happened

April 27, 2011

  • We apologize for our tardiness. It’s Jonathan Toews’ fault.
  • It’s cute how Vancouver is celebrating this like they won the Stanley Cup.  I mean, I’m not one to talk, being a Habs fan and everything, but I mean really.
  • How about that Corey Crawford? The hockey gods are cruel, cruel, cruel.
  • May Nashville become their new Chigaco.
  • Back to our Habs – how about that strange, strange game?
  • Jacques Martin’s efforts to make hockey as dull and uneventful as possible were thwarted by the officials, who apparently thought it was a great idea to ingest some illegal substances before they took the ice.
  • Every time Boston gets a power play opportunity, I think, “will this be the one, will this be the one” and then it’s not. The law of averages states that eeeep.
  •  Brad Marchand was warned he would get a penalty if he didn’t get his ass out of Carey’s face. So of course he went and stuck his ass in Carey’s face and got a penalty.
  • Just because a player returns to the game doesn’t suddenly mean he wasn’t hit from behind, oh, ye of Recchian faith…
  • That “Everything is happening!” call by Bob Cole may go down as the greatest call of this year’s playoffs.
  • I pledged my future children’s names on the outcome of last night’s game. Now I don’t know what to pledge for tonight.
  • To Claude Julien, who believes his team outplayed the Habs at even strength, I submit the first two periods of that game. Yes, they planted a flag in the Canadiens’ zone during the third, and yes, they proceeded to build houses and form a municipal government in the Canadiens’ zone in the third by the time the game was over, but they did not outplay the Habs for the first two periods of that game.
  • No, they didn’t.
  • If you don’t want to lose faith in humanity, don’t run a Twitter search for PK Subban’s name.
  • Speaking of PK Subban, good to see him settle down in Home Game 3. What an excellent game he played.
  • Still, can we have Wiz back now?
  • You can tell when the Canadiens get tired – the Bruins start winning footraces.
  • What do you get when you throw more than 40 highly-conditioned dudes running on adrenaline and mutual hatred in an enclosed space for an hour? You get tonight. Nervous?

    This is a great read! Nervous, and yet believing in what my Habs can do, I needed the grins. I agree, the filth that passes as tweets when one mentions P.K. just turns my stomach and ought to be reported, its authors banned. But I choose to be ignorantly blissful.

    Thanks for this – bookmarking and sending it along!

    And

    GO HABS GO!!!!

    I hope the Habs the best of luck tonight, and Im sure you Habs fans will celebrate it as much as Nucks fans did and maybe even more and you will have deserved to do so….

    You’re lucky to be a fan of a team with probably the most storied and victorious history in the league, not everyone in the league enjoys that luxury and it’s hard when you see your team hope to make its own storied history every year and this one team comes and ruins it. Maybe its because Im a Sens fan and I know what it’s like to have dreams crushed by that one same team every year and I feel for Nucks fans, I truly believe with the drama that unfolded in the series and all that’s been said and done they earned the “over celebration”. Maybe Crawford deserved a better fate but so did Quick, so did Lundqvist and many other who got eliminated and probab everyone outside of Van will disagree with me but believe it or not some guys on that evil nasty Nucks team deserved this better faith.
