I like this for a couple of reasons. I'd hate to lose to the leafs in the first round by blowouts (I'm still licking my wounds from that one). And second, I don't want our players getting injured in the first round, only to meet the Bruins in the second round. That would be the end of us for sure. Ottawa is a fast paced team, like ours. It should be a great series, and I also predict 5 or 6 for Habs. After round one, 1 of the bruiser teams will be gone, and we STILL get home ice advantage. That's big in Montreal, there's no overstating that fact. And let's face it, Ottawa is a home crowd for all intents and purposes, let's get our boys confidence up and running before we face round 2.
