Montreal Canadiens vs. Boston Bruins
Let me tell you why the Habs WILL win the series tonight. In these Stanley Cup playoffs, there has yet to be an underdog series win. When was the last time all favourites moved on from the first round? I don’t even know. It’s NOT going to happen. The only teams left are Pitt/TB and MON/BOS. Even if Tampa wins tonight, a 5th seed beating a 4th seed is hardly an underdog victory.
In summary, the Habs will win in Boston tonight, and Chara can go take out Tiger Woods on the golf course, in a “golf play.” Patrice Bergeron can go whine to his wife about getting kicked out of the dinner table instead of the faceoff circle. And Claude Julien can complain about the refs making bad calls in his lawn bowling tournaments.
- Andrei Markov (Torn ACL-out indefinitely)
- Josh Jorges (out indefinitely)
- Max Pacioretty (Broken Neck)
- Alex Picard (Foot)
- David Desharnais (knee injury)
- James Wisneiwski (back injury – game time decision)
- Benoit Pouliot (healthy scratch)
- Marc Savard
Keys to the Game
With their backs STILL up against a wall, and having played their best hockey in Boston this spring, the Habs will play a tight defensive game. The Bruins will get frustrated and will make mistakes. This will result in a Habs victory.
