    I know most of you don't care, but I do! Flyers, Devils, and Islanders, you know what you can all do...

    My Canadiens open the second round tonight in Beantown. Been forever since we played given we swept the first round.

    What?

    The Rangers are a way more complete team than the Flyers. The series never should have gone 7.

    Exactly. I'm not saying the Rangers are anything great but those who watched the series know the better team won. The Rangers certainly had the ability to beat the Flyers in fewer than 7 but didn't get it done until 7. I'll still take it. Just like I'll take tonight's OT win over "Minus 3" Crosby and the Penguins. :)

    They said they Lost the last 11 playoff series after they were leading. That's what I meant... Lucky they broke that pattern.

    I think that stat is incorrect. They've been terrible at extending a lead in a series. When they are up in a series, they lose the next game. I'm pretty sure that's the streak. For example, they can't turn a 2-1 series lead in to 3-1, they have allowed the opponent to tie the series every time for a while now. They've actually been really good at winning game 7s in playoff series over the past few years. I'm almost 100% sure that they have not lost the last 11 playoff series in which they were leading.

    Yeah, it sounded like a very Boston Red Sox-like losing streak from their 86 year drought. Lol

    Indeed. And, as a Yankees fan, I appreciate that Red Sox reference. :)

    Rangers win!!! Down 3-1? Whatever. Get Hank to Game 7 and it's all good. :)

    I'm not too optimistic after this round but I'm enjoying watching Sidney Crosby go home. She looked so frustrated didn't she? Lol!

    Let's go Rangers!!!

    I'll be optimistic if Montreal can somehow beat Boston tonight. Though the Rangers certainly got tougher the last three games, I have serious doubts about their ability to handle Boston's size in a 7 game series.

    St. Louis and his teammates got up for his mom. Nice!

    Altered history right there. They were operating without a pulse prior to his moms passing.

    RIP.

    If we take out the Bruins, I suspect we will also take you out. Rangers historically do not play well in Montreal and we would have home ice.

    IIRC, no team that has gone seven games in both of the first two rounds has ever made it to the Finals. Fatigue takes over.

    Fair, though the Rangers were one of the best road teams in hockey this year. There has been some voodoo on Henrik up there though.

    He never plays there anymore.

    Price also has 20% of his career shutouts against the Rangers.

    Still, we have to win tonight or this is all moot.
