In Response to NOW can we stop the stupid boasting?
[QUOTE]I've been ripped here the last couple days because while some people needed to go on and on about how this game is the "end of Montreal's season" and I continued to point out how STUPID it is historically to EVER underestimate that team, I've been called a Habs fan, negative, obsessed with memories from 40 years ago, blah, blah. Ill say it again: I hate that team as much as anyone. But the fact is they ALMOST ALWAYS up their game this time of year. The B's on the other hand ALMOST ALWAYS disappear at playoff time. What else? -The Habs are deadly at home. The B's? Worse than on the road. - The Habs in the Garden, even getting hammered, score 6 goals. The B's at the Bell? Count on 1 or less, usually. - Price is absolutely better than either Bruins' goalie. -The B's, AGAIN fall flat on their faces in the big time, high importance game. Sound familiar? -Seguin? That guy tonight is who everyone is crying over not dressing? He wasnt happy getting away with a stupid trip in the first period, he had to make sure to got called for one by the end of his shift. Not a PPG, but a goal right after. Not sure who the B's were defending on either of the first 2 anyway. -Speaking of PPGs... does anyone really think a "contender" has a power play that couldnt score on the US Women's team? Why are there not people fired related to this power play? Really, the next time the B's win a couple games in a row or by some miracle beat the Habs once, STOP with the idiotic fanboy postings about how the Habs are through and the Bs are soooooooo much better. (oh, save the 'Flyers are DOA' stupidity, too). The Bs looked just like they did against Detroit... outclassed by another skill team. Hello 6th place; I just hope the Bs dont get matched against the Habs in the playoffs again, because they will get embarrassed, again. Rant over. Resume flames.

You are too much like the trolls that come on here at times. Did B lose to Det yes did they lose to the scabs yes, does the PP suckle the hind teet,yes.
Did Bos beat Cal, yes, did they beat Van yes, did they beat TBay, yes. These are every bit as skilled as the other teams and yes the B's contained them and beat them.
Do the B's have problems, yes, they have a ghost of a PP and lack consistency in their efforts in big games.
As per NHL.com the headline is Canadiens dominate Bruins in 4-1 win. What a pile of BS. The B's outskated, outhit, outchanced the scabs all night long, they just did not outscore them. They even outplayed them 4-5, and for 5 mins in the 3rd as well. Eller got the 1st star for his 2 gift goals, Price got the 2nd star for a 30 save and .968 save%, Paciorety got the 3rd star in the game for 0G, 0A, 0Pts, 0+/-, but oh yeah he took Chara out of the game and gave the Habs a 5-4 PP for 5 mins, my way of thinking he should have got the 1st star.
Rask had a brutal effort from the get go in, he couldn't even steer the pucks to the corner. 2 brutal PPG against, but he did stop the other 2 shots, the socalled horrendous D made him face in 10 minutes and 12 seconds of shorthanded time. An .846 save %, he never challenged, he was in the paint when Wisn scored on his slapshot, he was in slow motion when Eller was alone on him, on Ellers other goal, he was tickling McQ feet to try and free it and never bothered to think to keep his pads in station when Eller did whack it. Gionta's wrister did not have power to go on its own, Chara knocked it out 3 times, but 4 times Rask knocked in and we know how that ended up.
The B's could have won, it is just the most frustrating thing in the world to lose, not only to the scabs, that is bad enough, but to lose to the scab fans, there is nothing worse in the world than the taunting scabbettes that come out thickest after a win.
Do we have a chance at Stanley, yes we do, will it be a hard road, yes it will, will it be harder because of the PP and the coaching yes it will,
we still have a shot at the cup!
