2010 NHL playoffs: It's electric in Montreal

Apr 19, 2010, 7:55 PM EDT

Two great games on tonight, but thankfully I’m able to simultaneously
watch both. With the games being played in Boston and Montreal, I’ve
had to adjust my sound system to keep seismic fissures from forming in
the foundation of my house.

Game 3: End of 1 – Montreal
Canadiens 0, Washington Capitals 0

Series tied 1-1

While
a lot of the “talk” headed into this game surrounded the supposed
shakiness facing Jaroslav Halak, it’s Semyon Varlamov who has been under
fire the most in the first period. Amidst an absolutely electric
atmosphere at the Bell Centre, the Canadiens have put nothing but
pressure on the Capitals and are a Jaroslav Spacek whiff on an open net
from the Habs taking a 1-0 lead into intermission. Just a really fun
game to watch; it’s physical, a great pace and the crowd is insanely
loud.

Just….never boo the national anthem. That’ll ruin things
in a hurry.

Game 3: End of 1 – Boston Bruins 1, Buffalo
Sabres 1

Series tied 1-1

The Bruins were able
to withstand a tremendous push by the Sabres, countering Mike Grier’s
first goal of the playoffs with a booming Dennis Wideman slapshot.
Tuukka Rask has been solid, as has Ryan Miller, but otherwise it’s been a
bit of nondescript game. It was getting a bit chippy, once more, at the
end of the period so we’ll see what sort of shenanigans these teams can
get into.

    I think it is totally disgraceful for Montreal’s fans to boo our national anthem. It has nothing to do with hockey. It just shows that they have absolutely no class! But I guess they are just like their hockey players…..when they started losing they got really frustrated and started making all kinds of penalties. Real Class Act Habs!!!!!
