The way I look at it is...we stole one, they stole one...it's pretty even. I think we are the better team, and I think we should win. It's even now, but we are a very good team and once Rask starts stealing a game or two, it will be all over for the habs.
I don't think the Bruins stole yesterday's game. They were the better team for at least two out of three periods. They missed a bunch of chances (again) and hit a few posts (again). Their PK sucked which accounted for the Habs' lead. The Bruins have eight even strenght goals and the Habs have two. The Habs are lucky it's not 2-0 Bruins.
I wouldn't be surprised to see the Bruins end this in 5.

The Bs have dominated the general play in the first 2 games, but have little production to show for it, minus yesterday's late game heroics.
You have to figure that the production aspect and Rask getting better as the series goes, will both become more of a reality.
I agree that it would not be shocking to see the B's win this going away and ending it in 5. Not saying that, but I would not be surprised. I had it going 6, but would not be surprised if it ends in 5.
The 3 and 4 posts per game Price has going for him in this series are not likely to hold up throughout.
If Boston can stay out of the box, they can run away with this. But, the concerning part was the officiating yesterday clearly trying to swing the game in the Habs favor almost from the outset. The announcers were talking about it and Julien made no bones in his press conference. It was atrocious, all in favor of Montreal, and they still lost.
Keep it 5-5 as much as possible and it's the Bs to lose.
I agree, just stay out of the box and we'll win this thing 5 on 5 - we are the better team - I had us winning in 6 too.
