It’s not often that you see a line brawl in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but tensions have been growing between the Senators and Canadiens ever since Eric Gryba took out Lars Eller in Game 1.

Unfortunately for them when they started this line brawl they figured they would win, but they thought wrong. The Senators dusted them...
Tonight, the Montreal Canadiens acted like a bunch of classless hacks. I don't know who the bigger clown is, P.K. Subban or the head coach of the Montreal Canadians. I don't blame the Ottawa Senators for taking the Habs to the wood shed tonight, Canadiens were begging for a beat down and they kept slashing the Senators and they obliged the Canadiens.
I also don't...
The only person missing from the Ottawa Senators thrashing of the Montreal Canadiens was WWE chairman/mouthpiece Vince McMahon.

Tempers finally boiled over between the Canadiens and Senators in Game 3.

Just a few things that caught my eye:
No offense to Peter Budaj, but Montreal has no hope without Carey Price between the pipes. He was terrific before he went down. #HabsDown.
The Isles are like a bad rash -- they just won't go away. They haven't figured out they're supposed to lose to the Penguins. Andrew MacDonald will be hard to replace, though...
If you ask me, hockey fights are a pointless endeavor, a lot of the times they’re forced and not that entertaining. But, it’s a part of the culture and probably won’t stop anytime soon, so why fight it? (no pun intended).
During Game 3 of the first-round match between the Montreal Canadiens and the Ottawa Senators in the NHL Playoffs, a brawl broke out on the ice and every...
I thought this was funny, even the announcers think that P.K. Subban embellished in an attempt to get the a call from the referee. I also think this is why some people don't like Subban and his antics. I have said this a thousand times, he's an awesome talent, it's the other crap that takes away from his game. I will give him a 4.5 on that one. If Chris Neil really wanted...
