Mellon Arena and the Infinite Sadness

I love this album.

I wish I could have posted this picture after a win, but hopefully the Habs will have another chance to close out the Mellon. They need to survive tomorrow.

I hope Gill is not too seriously hurt. He’s been awesome in the playoffs so far. The injuries are really starting to take their toll on the Habs. Contrary to the Pens, where apparently players suffering season ending injuries can come back after missing a game or two. I’m not wishing harm on anyone, and I guess that’s good if Staal isn’t as seriously hurt as announced, but frankly, it is annoying to see their guy coming back so soon after a supoosedly terrible injury when our guy is still out. But anyway, enough whining.

Yesterday I liked what I saw. Of course they lost, and they will face yet another elimination game. But they created chances to score. With a few lucky bounces, this game goes to OT. The habs really need to stay away from the penalty box though. The Pens are making them pay every time something is called, and it’s killing Montreal. That might very well be the ultimate difference in this series. Surprisingly enough, Montreal leads Pittsburgh 7-6 when playing  5 on 5 in this series. But the Pens also scored 7 PP goals, compared to 3 for the Habs.

This is still a close series. Winning two in a row is going to be tough. Pittsburgh has probably more killer instinct than Washington, so this Game 6 is pretty worrying. But the habs still have their chances, and they have shown lots of resilience so far. It’s far from over yet.

Go habs go!
