I think the Habs just stunned the hockey world

and the league gives the Habs a whole 45 hours of rest to play the well rested Jets




Isles tied the Bruins in OT at 1-1

Probably because the other player was not truly injured on the play.  The problem is it WAS a deliberate attempt to injur.  I don't have a problem with physical or even rough play, but dirty play, and attempt to cause injury should be punished.

Go Isles!


Good on them, but I don't think they have enough juice to win in the long run.
They looked like the dang Caps for a bit there...up by two with 9 minutes left and let Boston Tie it.
F Boston and the Rat.  I hope the Isles pull out a stunner like Montreal did.

Damn Montreal is a bit of a surprise.  I'd rather Winnipeg win that matchup.

I don't really care who wins that series, but Montreal is definitely a surprise

Scheifele got a 4 game vacation for that hit on the Habs Evans at the end of game 1.

wow, the Habs might be the surprise team of the playoffs, at least until the finals. They go up 2 games to 0 on Price's first career playoff shutout.

You nailed it when you said the Habs might be the surprise of the playoffs.  I really expected Toronto to win.  Toronto seemed like they were really strong and playing well most of the year(#1 seed)
Montreal finished the season with 59 pts.  that's 18'th out of 31 teams and only 3 games over .500.  That would not qualify them for playoffs in any other division.
Price is having a great playoff in net, so that's always key to winning.

I didn't think Winnipeg was to be the SC winner either, but they have played pretty well the last 2 months and well enough to sweep the Oilers in round one (3 games went to OT)


I thought Colorado looked the best, with Toronto, Vegas, Florida, Tampa & Carolina looked pretty solid.  I thought both FLA teams were the top two in the "central" despite Carolina finishing as top seed.


Top two seeds in the North are gone, as well as the top two in the East (ahem...Caps).  Although TBH...all four teams in the east were pretty evenly matched and finished very tight. 




Go Isles!   :huh:

since when can the Isles score 5g in a game, much less a playoff game?


3 PPG - sounds like Boston needs to stay out the box
