    Doesn't matter who the Canucks have in goal. If Edler is your top defenseman, you aren't going to make it very far. (no offense to Edler he is good...just not great)

    Game 7... how has it come to this? If we could EV-adjust the goals scored, Pens would have won every game 10-0.

    I expect us to break goal-scoring records tonight. The Crosby hat-trick - a hat-trick of hat-tricks. The Malkin hat-trick - 3 goals, 3 assists, 3 shots of vodka. The Fleury hat-trick - 3 empty netters.

    It's going to be one wild night.

    Whatev happens man. I am thankful the habs made it this far. I've said it before - they've made the city proud. We made the playoffs on the strength of an overtime loss to the 2nd worst team in the NHL. Doing what they've done so far - pure heart. GO HABS!

  28. #178
    haha I think a hawks vs habs series would be awesome. plus I like a lot of the hawks players, lots of canadians.

    I was really depressed last year when the Canucks got knocked out by Chicago, but this year I expected it so it was easier to take. I was at my most depressed in this series when we went down 3-1... been healing ever since then so I'm almost over it now!

    You are starting to show the first signs of a Leafs fan: Lowered Expectations.

    Well the Habs betting fucking make the finals now. I won't watch if it's Philly or Boston.

    I hate Chicago because I am jealous! How can you have Toews, Kane, and Hossa all on one team, while the nucks have the Sedin Sisters and LOLongo??

    Hopefully Hodgson and Schroeder make the team next year and light it up!

    obv a pretty friggin awesome game, but this pretty much sums up how i feel:

    "We know they're going to come back a lot better, a lot stronger in the next game," Briere said. "The goal was to keep home-ice advantage -- win the two games. We're just halfway there."

    best thing that can come out of this blowout is that it rattles halak's confidence.

    You're OK by me Surviva, but, my god do I ever hate flyers fans.

    A tweet from Marc-Antoine Godin of La Presse (a french-language newspaper in Montreal obv):

    "2 PHI fans yelled at TV guy 'go back home, you f@#$#& French-Canadian!' One had Briere jersey, the other a Gagné"

    Idiots.

    Sounds like two forward-thinking adults. Willing to hate you for only the jersey you wear, ignorant of your heritage, race or gender. I salute such great people.

    Thing is, the flyers fans were the ones wearing jerseys bearing the names of French Canadians. Dunno if you caught that. You may be leveling but I can't tell lol.

    I caught that. I'm just smack talking, it's how Americans enjoy sports; in hyperbole. Ignorant fans become gentlemen, mere players become inhuman, their triumphs - legendary. You Canuckiens just aren't up to snuff. Too much polite understanding. Respect is earned by your mouth writing checks your ass can't cash. After all, we can't play the games ourselves.

    Watching Philly is a lot of fun. Great players, great jerseys, great play. But we can't ignore the obvious truth that Halak was up for playing the Penguins. The man and his team played like goals were scored in blood. This isn't the same Habs team that I've loved hating so much.

    Where are you guys! This should be the best round of the playoffs!

    Meh. Some might consider this poetic justice or something... But Michael Leighton is no career NHLer. If we can't put pucks past an AHL scrub there is something seriously wrong.

    Anyhow, TYVM Pittsburgh and Washington, the upsets were fun. Most exciting run I've ever witnessed, last two games notwithstanding. Honestly - If I'd have known we'd go scoreless against the Flyers in games 1 and 2 on the way to an ignominous playoff exit in the conference finals, I would have preferred to lose a hard-fought game 7 to Pittsburgh. At least then we bow out with dignity. Now we just look like overmatched, undertalented, heartless wannabes.

    Hey, hey, hey, snap out of it. Have you never seen a team come back for losing 2 on the road? Let your balls swing like they're worth something! You're in the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Heh, I guess I'm a born pessimist. But here are a few daunting stats:


    • No team that has gone to seven games in rounds 1 and 2 has ever gone on to win the conference finals.
    • Philadelphia is 16-0 in its history when up 2-0 in a best-of-seven series.
    • The last Canadiens team to be shut out in games 1 and 2 was the '83 edition. Several months before I was born. And yeah, we lost the series.

    It's tough to find many positives right now tbh. Yes, we outplayed Philly for most of Game 2 - periods 1 and 2, we outshot them by wide margins - especially when the game was still hanging in the balance. But Halak... Man, I don't know what's up with him. It's like he needs 45 shots in order to have a great game. Meh.

    Hopefully it'll be a different story once we bring the series back to MTL tomorrow. Maybe we just needed to lose two games in order to properly set ourselves up as the "underdogs" before moving on to "upset" the 7th seeded Flyers...

    Penney, you gotta believe. As a mere fan, that's all you can do. If you don't have heart against adversity that you don't have to face personally, how will your team? I realize that Montreal's fans are insane; you boo your superstar goalie who won you a cup a couple years ago (Roy) and you guys have parade/riot/loot/orgies when your team wins in the 1st two rounds ffs. Set a good example in my old hometown and give your team some unconditional love (a la Maple Leafs lol).

    As a Vancouver fan, I hated the bandwagon fans during the 1st and 2nd round. We went down 2-1 against the Kings and people's facebook statuses were "GO GOLFING GO. We don't deserve to win and we won't." Guess what. We won! Sure you can say I was overly optimistic when we went down 3-1 against the Blackhawks, but fuck the critics. I still believed. I'm there through the good times and the bad and when we win our first cup, I'll cheer louder knowing that. Won't be able to say the same for the bandwagon crew.

    Anyways, sorry I ranted Pen haha. Go Habs Go. Canada's last hope. And Montreal proved that they have heart in the 1st two series. They just hit a bump in their road to glory and hockey immortality.
    OP: Beginner to Master

    If I bet as a bluff, I should be thinking "am I getting better hands to fold? Is it likely that he will fold x% of the time to a y sized bet to make it +EV?". If I bet for value, I should be thinking "am I getting worst hands to call? Am I ahead of enough of his range that this is a good value bet?".

    • No team that has gone to seven games in rounds 1 and 2 has ever gone on to win the conference finals.
    • Philadelphia is 16-0 in its history when up 2-0 in a best-of-seven series.
    • The last Canadiens team to be shut out in games 1 and 2 was the '83 edition. Several months before I was born. And yeah, we lost the series.
    Those are definitely crazy stats, but there's always a first time.

    Go Habs!!

    Too good not to post:

    After Game 1 in Philly, a Canadiens beat writer had his car vandalized (slashed tires, keyed, etc) on account of his Quebec license plate.

    The ingenious thief decided to steal said license plate as well, as a token of his accomplishment.

    And posted pics of it on his fuckin' facebook.

    You can piece together what happened subsequently, I bet.
