Rangers vs. Canaidens in the ECF....two mediocre teams. Another opportunity lost by the Pens...

I watched this series. Carey Price has been as good as Lundquist, perhaps better. The Habs were more in tune with how the refs were calling the game, and adapted to the hitting Boston was throwing around. They hit back, tired out Chara and his teammates and ended up being the better team. Montreal is peaking now.

Not sure the Pens would have won, but they would have imploded on Boston for sure.

Not going to go down the What If path.

destiny?

The habs were relentless and aggressive. The powerplay would stand no chance, they'd get frustrated and start making dumb mistakes.

I would have loved to have seen a scoreless Game 7 decided by Bylsma and Therrien wrestling at center ice with Mark Madden refereeing.

I think it would have been a good series. A toss up IMO.

The Pens coulld've won one, two, three games who knows. It would have depended what team showed up and what they wanted to play.

Depends which pens showed up. Bad pens get beat by anyone at any given tyime, same with good pens can beat anyone.

now that Price is out? probably. the problem with that scenario is that none of our players ever actually crash the net so the injury probably wouldn't have occurred.
