Since I am fortunately missing the gene all British Columbians seem to be born with which compels them to dedicate their lives to hating everything from Toronto, I have absolutely no problem cheering for them against Boston. I think it's a pretty safe bet they'll be playing longer than Vancouver this year.
I 2nd that notion and could not agree more...
Paddy, Derwood, kinda drop dead would ya. :thumbs:

Thanks in advance....

Isles are outplaying the Pens. Gillis and Tallon can't enjoy watching Grabner fly around the ice. Tavares is a beast. I doubt the Isles actually win this series, but they're young, having fun, have zero pressure on them, and are giving the Pens all they can handle.
Grabner looked good out there

That Montreal/Ottawa series is really heating up.

Therrien is an ass hat for calling out MacLean like that over the timeout.

Price needs to get his shit together or he's going to be just another starting goaltender that the Habs fans ran out of town.

Just a heads up for ya Arach....

Vancouver went 0-3 in Boston in 2011.

Toronto has already bettered that record this year. ;)

The Leafs will fail and be golfing soon.....but not before the Canucks methinks.

Are you saying the time out wasn't meant as fuck you to the Habs?
Cause it most definitely was a big fuck you to the whole be church and its gonna cost McLean you watch.

Don't light a fire under the other bench whatever you do.

Did you listen to MacLean's explanation for the timeout?

Did you see the way they lined up for the faceoff after the timeout?

The Canadiens had gotten really chippy, they'd gotten blown out of the rink on the scoreboard and were trying to send a message with their fists. MacLean already has a shortened bench because of the penalties assessed to both teams, he doesn't want his team engaging in anything stupid in the last minute. He calls a timeout and drills that home and then sets up with 3 men across the blueline and just 2 up for the faceoff.

It may have come across as a fuck you to the Habs, but I don't think that was its primary intent. Nobody but MacLean will ever know though.

I'm sorry what were the circumstances again? 6-1 dying minutes of a penalty filled debacle (236 minutes PiMs) and Maclown wants a time out with a powerplay to remind his boys from doing something stupid???
You're buying that? I doubt you'ld be be so understanding if it was you on the opposite bench.

The guy's a jackass and he's giving the Habs plenty of fuel. watch that be the turning point in the series.

They didn't seem to fired up about losing Eller and the walrus referring to Diaz and #61.

Respect has to be earned.

Subban pummeling Turris while he's lying on the ice isn't exactly respectful. Not to mention the hack that led to the line brawl by White. Oh and then the slapshot dump in at the end of the game right at Turris.

Who the fuck cares what the Habs think. Ottawa owns them right now and MacLean has the Canadiens thinking about everything but hockey.

You want to know how to save your pride, don't lose 6-1 and get beaten in the trenches at the same time. Montreal can whine, bitch and moan about all things Sens but the have no one to blame but themselves.

Definitely rooting for the Islanders. If the decision Gillis made was really Raymond or Grabner, he made the wrong call.

Good points all and I'm no Hab fan, however, the coach is the one guy you don't want undermining all the good things the sens have done...I haven't paid much attention to the Sens or McLean or the Habs for that matter but that episode reminds me of Bertuzzi telling Minnesota fans not to bother with buying tickets for game six...

Sometimes you just can't get out of the building fast enough

Take the win and run...

The 8th seed Islanders scored as many goals tonight as we have in our playoffs so far.... :shock:
