A few lucky goals thanks to Fleury, but an otherwise solid performance I'd say.
First the President's Trophy winners, then the reigning Stanley Cup champions...
Everyone thought they'd be cannon fodder, but yet here they are. We've lost arguably our biggest influence in Game 1 of the series, but even without Andrei Markov, the Habs still have a lot of heart. Halak's performances of late have been tremendous in getting us this far, Camalleri's seemingly unstoppable one-timers have him leading all players in goals and 3rd in points, and with the youth infusion of PK Subban (who turned 21 yesterday - happy belated), not to mention the grinding efforts of Travis Moen and Maxim Lapierre - it's hard not to like this team!
It'll be mouth-watering to see them in the Final. I kind of want to see them vs San Jose - I didn't think San Jose even deserved to be there, they got a lot of questionable calls going for them against Detroit (Setoguchi comes to mind quite a few times). If the Habs were to upset them...
Ah, mustn't get ahead of myself. They still have either Boston or Philly to go up against, so whoever it is, bring it on!
Go, Habs, Go!
As I have already written an extensive Hub on why Montreal is not to be supported, and would only like to add here: "GO LEAFS GO:
Hahaha, thanks for the comment Greek One.
I WANT the Leafs to do well, but reality just doesn't comply maybe next year though, I'd like to see them make the playoffs.
Though your management throwing away that first round draft pick infuriates me...
After reading your Hub, I have not changed my mind. Appreciate what the Leafs have done for the Canadiens in the past, but let's make this a friendly rivalry. Don't have grudges based on the actions of fans, have grudges based on the actions of players (*cough* Setoguchi).
Gotta support the only Canadian team left on the playoffs though. And maybe one day we can relish the thought of a Leafs-Habs conference final.
Until then though, I'm just fine watching the Habs with their "revamped" team edge over Ovetchkin and Crosby.
Game 1 tomorrow evening between the Flyers and Habs. Should be a great series.
Go Habs Go !!!! I've always been a fan since I was knee high to a grasshopper! Go Habs Go !!!!!
do you remember the last time these two teams met in a series?
I have terrible memory lapses...can't remember that series. Refresh my memory?
Sorry, my mistake. Two years ago the Flyers beat the Canadiens 4-1 in the second round.

Who watches Hockey?I try to watch as much Hockey as I can whether its the NHL or College Hockey because I love the physical play on the ice.

It is only the first round of the playoffs and there is a lot of hockey left to play. Some of the better teams, like the Pittsburgh Penguins, are already down 3 games to none. So what team do you think will win the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs?

They say its the Lakers Year for the West and the Celtics for the East. I am praying that its the Mavericks but they way it looks know the Celtics have to be the Favorite. In my Heart I feel the Mavericks are going to get it together and take it all. What do you Think.
