  1. Dennis,

    Did you see this from Cammalleri? Quality.

    From CBC Sports

    Chara was hospitalized overnight for dehydration and is being monitored by team doctors.

    His teammates and the Montreal Canadiens expect the towering blueliner to be in the lineup tonight.

    “Dehydration isn’t pleasant” Canadiens forward Mike Cammalleri said. “I’m not an MD, unlike Mark Recchi, so I’m not going diagnose the other team.”

    I’m a little worried that AK may not make the line up. That’ll be a big miss
    given his form lately and along with White his hits the other night gave the Habs some presence.

  2. Oh and I should have said that I’ll back the Canucks if the Habs don’t make it. After all we’re all loyal subjects of Her Maj. ;-)

  3. I like the last guy’s answer. An all-Canadian final would be awesome.

    Wouldn’t that rot Bettman’s socks off?

  4. Dennis, I have exclusive footage Zdeno Chara following Doctor Mark Recchi’s advice on how to treat his dehydration…

  5. Danno, I’m so tempted to post that but maybe I’ll just the link for others to click on. Funny stuff.

  6. Danno, a Canucks-Habs final is talked about often out here. Everyone salivates at the idea.

  7. But Blue Bayou, if the Canucks were to win the whole thing, I’d never hear the end of it around here.

  8. Turtle soup anyone?

    Got the chance to stay up and watch it live. I don’t think my nerves can stand much more. I get the NESN feed so it always sounds like the Ruins are going to win whatever happens and I’m left feeling alone. Mind you CBC with Bob Cole is about the same I think.

    Eller and Pyatt put in a great shift tonight. Maybe Eller’s got his playoff head going after a nervous start in Game 1.

    There’s no way a hockey player can dehydrate just through playing even if it’s in a sauna. There’s too much time available to take on fluid for that to happen.

    Chara must be ill. But how ill and will it spread round the team if it’s a bug? Might explain the lack of energy from Lucic.

    “Call the Doctor, don’t call the law” as they say.

  9. From a source in the Boston Medical team

    Chara went to see Dr Recchi and told him that he hadn’t been feeling well lately.

    Aftera brief examination Recchi left the room and came back with three different bottles of pills.

    Dr Recchi said, “Take the green pill with a big glass of water when you wake up. Take the blue pill with a big glass of water after you eat lunch. Then just before going to bed, take the red pill with another big glass of water.”

    Previous to this Chara did not use any prescription medications and was wary of getting drug tested, so he was startled to be put on so much medicine.

    He demanded to know what the problem was.

    Dr Recchi replied, “You’re not drinking enough water.”

  10. Blue Bayou, the dehydration thing is a little weird. These are pros with professional trainers who won’t let this happen. Maybe because he’s so tall the air is thinner up there. This year we’ve beaten them six games to two and still the experts will say Boston was the better team and was just under the weather. But let them say anything they want, as long as Boston golfs while we carry on. And you’re absolutely right – Pyatt and Eller really contributed.

  11. Marjo, I think it’s Vancouver for me too but I’m not sure. Anyway, they’ll have a tough time against Detroit.
