Tough one   1 comment

Alright. That was a heartbreaking loss. The Habs played two great periods, collapsed in the third but hanged in there and regained the lead, only to allow Washington to come back again with less than 2 minutes to go. They really deserved better, and they were THIS close to leading the series 2-0. It’s really tough because now Washington has some momentum going into the Bell Centre, whereas the Habs have to get past the disappointment of that game.

This morning I saw a lot of habs fans complaining about the refs. For sure, the refs weren’t great last night, and they missed some key calls (the goalie interference on the 2nd caps goal, the highstick on Markov 15 seconds before the Caps tied the game for the last time). But there is no conspiracy. And the Habs shouldn’t have allowed the caps to come back twice when they had the game in hand.

Now it’s useless t think about what might have been if the habs had grabbed a 2-0 lead in the series.  Things are what they are. No one expected Montreal to sweep the series anyway, and being tied after the two games in Washington is really not that bad. This is now a best of 5 series, and the habs have their chances. It’s time to regroup and win Game 3. This will be the biggest game of the season. If the habs lose, it’s going to be REALLY tough to come back in this series. If they win, they get the momentum back and everything is possible again, with a second home game to play.  The Bell Centre is going to be insane tomorrow.

In other news, the Bulldogs are fantastic. Well that’s not news actually. Anyway, it’s great to have them on a day like this. As you probably know by now, they butchered some moose yesterday. 8-2. Awesome. I hope this somehow inspires the Habs.

  1. Yeah, more than anything I feel like it was the Caps’ second goal that was bad. They were up 4-1 with under 2 minutes to go in the 2nd. They have to play hard and carry that 4-1 lead into the third, but I think they relaxed there. They were fortunate enough to grab the 5-4 lead late. Definitely hard to watch that tying goal. They were so close to having a 2-0 series lead! Very hard not to feel that.

    Montreal just has to keep fighting, scratching, playing desperate hockey, winning battles.
