Halak is the only reason the Habs are still in the playoff. I wonder how long will he stay hot...

Only Halak … GMAFB… I'm no Habs fan, but that's not the only reason. If the Bruins somehow win game 7 against Philly … they'll get run over by MTL the way their skating.

Try Cammalleri and Gionta adding an incredible amount of goals in this series (mostly Cammy) as well. Halak is back stopping them but without those goals they wouldn't be winning either.

Quite true ... but I will add there's a good defense as well (Gill, Gorges,Spacek, Subban)...

Will see on Sunday ;)

Because Halak was the one putting the puck in the net. Cammalleri and Gionta grabbing those games by the balls, and the Habs blue line making Crosby a non-factor had nothing to do with it. :rolleyes:

Bitter Pen/Caps fans.

Montreal has really impressed me so far.

Now that Detroit and the Caps are eliminated, I'm hoping that the Canadians win the cup.

Go Habs!

:confused: I don't get your point ... the ones who brooked the stores where not habs fans but hooligans ... Unfortunately every large crowd everywhere on the planets are plagued by those rats...

And for Montreal , 100 years of hockey history and 24 Stanley cups cant go wrong ;)

Canada, although too liberal (allowing too many middle easterners in), is actually a decent country. We've been there many times and enjoyed it. LOL

Totally premature......

If memory serves me correctly, I remember the year after the lockout. In their last game, Toronto had won and needed New Jersey to beat the Islanders so the Leafs would make the playoffs. In Toronto, they had riots too.... people took to the streets celebrating the fact that they had the chance to claim the 8th seed. This IMHO, is lameness personified.

These Habs fans remind me of this: no one gives a s%%t who makes it to the conference finals. They only care about cups. You'd think an organization with that much success would know that by now.

All the Habs have won right now.... is a worse draft pick.

I missed the game today. Looks like Montreal didn't get very many shots on goal, and Halak didn't stop a good percentage of the Philly shots.

Amazing the way Leighton is getting these shutouts.

No.

Montreal put 17 shots on net.

Montreal is crapping the bed and running out of gas.... all at the same time.
