All my poor friends in Tampa are shouting "conspiracy" and claiming the series was handed to the Habs since they are the only Canadian team.

Meh. A couple of bad calls at inopportune times, but that doesn't win you 4 games.

At the end of the day the got out-skated. Montreal was flying most of this series and Price continues to be solid. Gonna be a good second round matchup no matter who they meet.

Oh yeah, I mean Price in between the pipes is hard to not consider at least making it to the second round. They were far superior to Tampa in all aspects.

I'll agree to that. Seemed like there were a lot of moments where they were, both literally and figuratively, skating circles around the defense.


Also, I keep having staring contests with your sig

The only silver lining is that the team they ended the season with could be quite formidable once they've had time to jell. Assuming people can stay healthy...

Welp, time to start pulling for my adopted home team. Go Avs!

Trying not to get ahead of myself, but thanks to their win tonight, theoretically the Bruins "could" have an all Original Six playoffs: Detroit -> Montreal -> New York -> Chicago ()

They have clearly been boning up on their diving (Marchand) and cheap hits (Lucic) in order to compete with the Habs.

Bruins/Habs series would be brutal. Those two teams have HISTORY and it's not the good kind.

That was a lot of bad calls not just a couple. Whenever Tampa actually showed up to play, they were hit with the book until they stopped playing again. It can be very, very demoralizing to play in those situations and team moral plays into winning almost as much as skill.

Montreal played terrible and the only reason they won was because Tampa played worse. If they don't start playing well, they are going to be thrashed in the second round.

Respectfully disagree. As does Mr. Stamkos.

The reffing did seem to skew one direction but it's in no way the sole cause of the Lightning's elimination. Don't get me wrong, I'm pretty bummed about how things went, but I'm not willing to justify it by blaming the officials. I'm going to remember the season for the amazing ride it was and move on.
