I second that.

Bruins look slow without ability to outskate the opponent in the neutral zone. Habs defensively did a great job as from at least 30 Price defenses only few were 'tough', all else were desperate shots ... well what else can happen when Gill & Sopel place themselves in the slot
Also, Boychuk and Seidenberg played bad bad bad.

Habs have last years poff experience while Bruins came into it after a fail ... so 0-2 is totaly realistic.

Sad for Chara and his health problem, liked him from Sens times.

The Bruins have totally failed to show up for those two games, except for some short periods of desperate chaotic pressure. When the Habs beat the Pens and the Caps last year Halak had to stand on his head, now Price is great too but so far he hasn't needed to make many big saves because the Bruins have no traffic in front of him and have shown very little creativity. It will be interesting how the things will unfold if the Bruins take a lead in a game but I don't trust their coach, he really looks like a fool.

The Sharks were embarrassingly bad in their last game, no intensity and desire whatsoever, bad penalty killing. Drew Doughty had a heck of a game. I like LA's gritty tenacity but I suspect that just like last year against Vancouver, superior talent might be too much for them o overcome...provided Thornton and Marleau show up for the Sharks.

The Penguins lost which is pretty normal when they fall behind, alas. Their power play is horrendous and the defensive mistakes in that game were terrible. The first goal in the next game will be crucial for the course of the series, IMO.

So Bruins finaly won hehe ... crowd in Bell Center was awesome, loved watching it ... am not afraid for Habs though as they were not away from the victory here as well, coming back from 0-3 to 2-3 and great 3rd ... Bruins didn't show confidence while leading like Habs did in 2 previous games, could easily lost it at the end ...

Also, Bruins r bad in pp ... almost as Pens

Sweep d be cool but it's more interesting this way + more games to enjoy in

I can not believe Quick was not substituted, hes been awesome this season but he was so bloody awful tonight. How the hell do you blow a 4-0 lead at home in the 2nd period? This is it, Sharks got this.

VIVA ESPAÑA Y HALA MADRID :fero:

Kunitz should be happy he didn't get a tougher suspension. Hope Tangardi d come in instead, way better then Comrie.
Indeed they r missing Syd and Malkin, but they r holding fine

Pens don't have the fire power for pp with Tampa, need to stay out of the box and slow the game avoiding the trap by being caught in a race up and down.
Go Pens!!!

Caps scored two quick goals early in the 3rd to make it 3:2, Caps now on the PP with 9 minutes to go, Rangers completely outplayed in the 3rd period

edit: Caps tie it only seconds after the PP

Rangers - Caps going to OT...Capitals owned the Rangers that period with the exception of some late Rangers pressure. Momentum is on the Capitals side and I think they will win this one

Ovechkin misses a breakaway in OT... Very tense, neither team putting shots on net
