I am worried about special teams. 

Our PK has been awesome so far. Tampa has a powerful power play, but as long as we play disciplined and avoid excessive penalties, and our PK keeps up the good work, I think it will come down to five-on-five play.

I guess this is going happen, never envisioned this team would be improved enough to actually win 3 rounds. Will they finish it off, make it 4 upsets and complete the deal so Weber/Price can scratch cup win off their to-do list.

Opponent has much better PP than the others, will Habs win or come out even in special team battle?

 

and Luke Schenn is still in the NHL?

Let's do this! Wooo! I'll be at the rink completely ignoring (ok, maybe not completely, intermission will come on while I'm there) my son on the ice. Ha.

Given our wonderful "heat dome" out west, i imagine many folks here will be inside watching this one, pulling for Canada's favourite sports team and hugging their A/Cs.

Wife and I are watching the game Friday on the deck.  Wednesday will be too warm for me to watch on the deck.

 

Watching Habs hockey outside on the deck, I never thought I would ever do that.

 

If anybody in Edmonton is outside Friday and you hear a “F@$# you Tampa,” when Montreal scores, that’s me.  The beer is cold.

Let’s go boys.

 

It could be because I have my tower fan going full blast on me from a foot away amidst this heat wave, but I’ve got chills right now.

Watching the sportsnet pregame show, it seems Tampa relies pretty heavy on Hedman, McDonough, and Sergachev.  Habs on the other had rely on 4.  There’s a good chance Montreal’s physical style may do wonders against Tampa defense.

I’m having a hard time figuring out how to feel. 
 

I’m happy but anxious. 
 

I want them to set the tone but I don’t want them to overcommit. I want them to relentless but calculated. 
 

Steal the W and the pressure is solely on TB. 
 

One at a time.
