And here I've been complaining to my wife about how this run has been screwing up my sleep schedule here in Halifax :lol: 

Well, what can I say... over here it's more like the wife's been complaining about me messing up her sleep schedule :ph34r: We have two cats though, one of them born and raised in Montreal, that one likes to hang around right next to me on the couch once the puck drops. Such a hockey nerd :rolleyes:

Even though i think the Isle might be an easier matchup, i think that TB will be less motivated - dont get me wrong, they are going to be motivated - but they just won last year... i like our chances.

Queue the entire media world saying "Tampa in five." We've won three rounds so far. And no one expected us to. Why not one more?

The two good things about this:

1. The Habs will maintain their substantial underdog role, which has suited them well. They're motivated to prove everyone wrong.

2. Tampa is extremely unlikeable this year because they cheated to circumvent the cap. As I've posted, there is a 0% chance that Kucherov and Stamkos turned healthy at exactly the time the playoffs started and a 100% chance the Lightning asked these guys to fake staying injured until the cap was no longer an issue. Plain and short, they cheated to get where they are and they don't deserve to be here. Everyone should be rooting against them, including the NHLPA, which really should be against players being asked to fake injury duration.

And #3 - if you believe the League was conspiring to get a LV/NYI final, then who would they rather have win now? Tampa, who already won last year, or the first Canadian team in 28 years?  Im not saying we want or need the refs on our side, but i think its unlikely there will be biased reffing in TB's favour - both for this reason and point #2 above.

I was watching the pressers after Tampa's win against the Isles tonight, and to a man every single player (prompted or not) said some very similar variation of "Montreal's a great team, they're in the finals for a reason".  That's the "right" thing to say, no doubt, but it's not what you say if you actually think that the other team is on your level.  They're obviously here for a reason, which shouldn't need to be said... unless you don't really believe it.

 

Montreal has some swagger right now, and going into a series with a team as heavily favoured as the defending champion Lightning they're going to feel like they have a lot to prove.  I've got to say, I'm feeling pretty confident myself.

Lightning choice of skates sucks. Teach 'em a lesson.

So was their choice of giveaways for last nights game. WTH  was with those mini tennis rackets? I'm assuming that's what they were. Strange.
