Who would you rather see the Canadiens play in the opening round – Boston or Washington? If Montreal beats Pittsburgh on Saturday and the Rangers lose to the Flyers on Sunday, the Habs grab seventh spot and would take on Washington. This is the only scenario possible for Montreal to obtain seventh. Anything else and they stay where they are – in eighth, and will play Boston.
I’d like to see them play Boston. They can take them down. And you can bet the farm that George Laraque would see action if these two meet. It could be the best series in all of the playoffs. Maybe someone will make a plane runway out of Milan Lucic’s ski hill.
Washington, with Ovechkin, is a different team than Boston. Somehow get him off his game and the Caps can be taken. Mike Green on defence is another problem. But hey, two guys don’t make a team. Okay, they’re solid with Backstrom, Fedorov, Semin and Kozlov too. But the Habs have more than enough to quiet down these dudes.
Bring on either team. Soon Markov will be back, and Price will be in the zone. Personally, I’d like to see Montreal take on Boston. If just to make Bruin’s bloggers eat cake. They’re a cocky bunch down there. Have a look: Are The Habs Starting to Crack And don’t forget to read a little further down about how the Bruins should tank the game last night and give Thomas a rest etc. because the Habs aren’t even in the same league as the Bruins.
Funny, funny stuff. Keep it up. You might end up on Leno.
