Game Three: Boston 2, Montreal 1. Time To Regroup And Get The Power Play Back On Track.

 GAME 3

During the regular season, Montreal’s power play looked like Sophia Loren – beautiful, lovely, graceful, nice to watch. But in this playoff round against the Bruins, Montreal’s power play resembles a drunken Britney Spears. Kovalev’s overtime goal in game two was a power play goal, but that’s it. The only one in three games.

And that’s the main reason why tonight, Boston skated away with a 2-1 overtime win in game three, and now it’s going to take five games instead of four for Montreal to win the series.

Another reason is the ineffective play in the series so far of Tomas Plekanec, Christopher Higgins, Michael Ryder (who can’t hit the net), and pretty well everyone except Carey Price, Alex Kovalev, and the Begin, Kostopoulos, Smolinski line, who have shown up every game. It’s not good when the grinder line is the best line. The Kostitsyn boys, huge in game one, are a non-entity right now. And it’s obvious now that Saku Koivu is greatly missed.

Montreal showed all year that they are a superior team to Boston. But they need to adjust to the adjustments the Bruins have made. There was no fire wagon hockey tonight, only chances that arose from hard work. They need to overcome the tight checking the Bruins have instilled.

Show us your Sophia Loren moves again, boys. Show that you can score often, just as Sophia probably could.

Fourteen wins to go, on hold for the moment. Enjoy the moment, Bruins fans. Soon enough, you’ll be hating the moment.

Game note:

Milan Lucic, Boston’s young power forward, looks a little like a young Phil Esposito. Except Lucic’s nose is quite a bit bigger.

Bonus game note:

Ron McLean called Brad Richards “his boyfriend.”

  3. By the way Dennis,spoke to Don Cherry`s tailor today & he`s going to extend is shirt collars 8 inches so we don`t have to listen to him blather on about when he played or coached any longer !!!

    No, sorry, it was just funny how Dennis said Britney because she’s been all over the news and whatnot. I guess I should have explained further. I don’t usually talk about “kiddie” things. I’m a little older than that.

    “He may as well put on a jersey half Leafs & half Bruins.”
    …and half Ottawa. But why doesn’t he like Montreal seeing he’s Canadian?
