Ovechkin's a good hockey player but he's also a cheap shot artist. That's why they play the game Ovie...:)

I like what Barry Melrose hinted at last night, it's time to stop comparing him to Crosby.

Also happy for RJ !!!

bruce boudreau is a whiney, no class, little B

post game he mentioned that he would have bet his house that montreal couldn't win 3 in a row. he complained that the "no goal" didn't look like a no goal.

maybe he should've gave a little more respect to the canadiens, and admitted the fact that he got out coached. the loss goes far beyond a "no goal" call. i'd personally be more upset at the 4 minutes of power play towards then end of the 1st period that they failed at that changed the game, because the habs came around and scored soon after.

boudreau is the canadiens what mike brown is to the cavs.....both are hindering.

I am not sure about Boudreau outcoaching Martin, but Martin and his coached did a terrible job the first 3 games. They smartened up after that by limiting Bergeron and Hamerlick playing time. That's exactly how Bergeron should be used.....only on the powerplay. That's it. He was a minus 8 in the first three games. They took him out, and the Canadiens started winning.

I can assure you that martin did not out coach boudreau.. Martins players wanted this more than boudreaus players,plus the fact that Halak stole this series... That was the real difference in this series......Halak !!! And if the habs have even the slightest hope against the pens,halak will have to play exactly like he did in the previous two games..
