I don't mind Bournival getting back in but it shouldn't be Moen who comes out. He's needed for the penalty kill. To be honest, if Briere's only going to get a few shifts a period, I'd prefer it if he went out and the 4th line became an energy trio.

I'm not a fan of Moen, but I agree with you. He should be in against the Bruins. He laid some solid hits in his first game back.

I would assume Briere hits the press box when Galchenyuk is ready.

For those who are watching the NBC broadcast today, note that if the game goes past two OT's, coverage will shift to NBCSN because of the Kentucky Derby pre-race show.

We were decent in 40 but fell apart in the next 40.

Playing 60 minutes is the goal.

I would say, protecting lead played a big part in Bruins taking over momentum in game 1.

And if Habs again have 2-0 lead in 3rd, I would bet they start playing more defensive again.

Sort of why 2-0 lead can be a bad lead to sit on, lose momentum and if don't have an all-world goalie performance, can find yourself losing.

But, lets hope Vanek & Pacioretty can get hot & light up Rask and I look forward to see Bournival back; not anything against Moan, but hard-working kid who can skate.

Moen just got back from injury and game 1 was a tough one so they may want to rest Moen for montreal.

More than any other year, trying to sit on a lead this year is death. Way too many 2 and 3 goal leads blown by teams getting to comfortable. If we get up again, i hope we go for the jugular!

Is that Rene Rancourt actually considered a good singer and better than he sounds?

That would be great to see but it would be tough against a surging Booteam going all out. Counterpunching is great and works, but sometimes blocking the haymaker takes all your concentration.

Let's hope our guys have as much Starbucks in them as I do to get them ready for the early game. I know I feel ready...to pace, jump, scream at the TV, and do my usual highly animated playoff hockey watching thing.

Speaking of...how much booze do you have to throw back on a daily basis to get your nose that purple?!

I was really surprised at how feeble he was. I could do better and I'm an amateur hack church singer who can only sing with a guaranteed forgiving audience ..... :blush:

I have no idea what the heck is going to happen today. Les Booins will be focused, but I have no idea how we are going to play. No clue.

What are the odds of #20 showing up..?

Unless the game plan is have Price be superhuman every night, we need to have a better effort here. Vanek and Patches need to bring 'er!

I don't believe this pace of hitting can be sustained. It'll be interesting to see whether the Bruins are going to keep it up on one day's rest - I doubt it myself.

Ya.. the last game looked like scenes from a WWI barrage.

OMG...I could definitely do better than this poor guy...

On another note, I have the impression that the scales are finally tipping vis-a-vis PK Subban. The racist pigs in Beantown + his incredible excellence + his playoff on-ice restraint (in contrast to the Bs' extravagant goal celebrations) seem to have combined to create a critical mass of commentators FINALLY starting to root for this unbelievable kid. Fingers crossed that that continues.

I have a bad feeling watching this...but then I usually do ;)
