How To: Staying Alive in Montreal

As it stands right now, Tampa Bay is the only team currently on watch to be swept so far in the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs. LA, down 0-2 to San Jose, can be facing the same deficit after tonight, but the fear of going 0 for 4 against Montreal in the playoffs is imminent for the Lightning. Like many people that have watched a game or two of this series, I too have found myself doubting...

What's Next?

     As a Habs fan, these playoffs have been both encouraging and a dose of reality.  No one expects Montreal to win the cup this year.  If they can make it throught two rounds it would allow the younger players to gain some valuable experience and hopefully put an end to the Bruins season.  (Almost as satisfying as winning the cup itself.)      Against the Lightning,...

Habs score three to take 3-0 series lead

First off, I have to give props to the Montreal Canadiens special effects crew that composed the opening ceremony. No one hypes their home team more then the Habs. It was an epic. The ceremony seemed to also hype the team as PK Subban sent a beautiful break-out pass which bounced to a streaking Rene Bourques and he ripped one past Lindback just 11 seconds into the game.

Video: Terrible disallowed goal during Game Three between the Tampa Bay Lightning and Montreal Canadiens

In an unbelievable action packed game, this terrible call by the referees may have just changed the fate of the entire Tampa Bay vs. Montreal first round series. With 4:22 remaining in the second period, the Lightning appeared to have taken a 2-1 lead.

Flash Points: Lightning pushed to brink with Game 3 loss to Canadiens

The Bolts are on the brink. Are the officials to blame?

In front of a charged crowd at Bell Centre, Callahan appeared to...

The Canadiens were back on home turf Saturday, sounding like a team that wasn’t dwelling on past success as they prepared for Game 3 in their playoff series against the Tampa Bay Lightning. “Focus” and “business mentality” were a few terms that cropped up in Brossard after the Canadiens held a team meeting and did some off-ice stretching.
