Great first two periods for the Habs I hope a shutout for Price and the team

Edit: awesome win. Price deserves that shutout (and they're still 1st in the east )

Well the Habs are back on top of the East after shutting out the New Jersey Devils 4-0. The fans were so-ooo loud during the final minute, that you'd think they won a playoff round or something. The television announcers stopped giving the play-by-play during the final 90 seconds, in a way allowing the fans to be the "voice" of the team.

yeah, this part was awesome, no wonder why Habs fans were voted the best.

I'm assuming we were all watching on RDS? That was great how they let the fans cheer, and boy were they ever loud - gave me shivers!

No, this is the first I've heard of that! I've kinda been out of the loop on lots of things lately, but I'm surprised my hockey buddies at work haven't mentioned it yet.

But yes, I'm glad Nonis didn't do anything. Getting the Sedins in 1999 was one of the best deals the Canucks have made. They have improved by leaps and bounds since then, and are such a key part of the team's success.

I followed the Nucks trade talks pretty closely, and it's the first I heard of it too. Even a casual hockey fan can see how ridiculous that deal is, I don't think a professional hockey GM would ever dream of actually offering it. I doubt it ever happened.

I'm not glad Nonis did nothing though...the Canucks needed someone who can consistently score goals, and having made zero effort to improve the team's offense (or defense, for that matter), I'm worried about the team's playoff hopes - they'll get in probably, but just barely, and I wouldn't think they'll win more than one game against Detroit, barring a miracle. Luongo is the best goalie in the NHL (yes, I went there) but he can't win games on his own against an offensive powerhouse like Detroit without some help up front.

That said, I'm really, really hoping for that miracle.

I should point out that Darren Dreger from TSN said it the other night. Take it for what it's worth.

Good game last night if you don't count the first two periods...

The Leafs were supposed to win in regulation though and they didn't so they fall a little further back, next game in Philly is a "Must Win" game like every single fucking game for the rest of the season... ugh.

It would be nice one year not to need a calculus degree to be able to figure out if the Leafs are in the playoffs or not

Nope, and he and Andropov are both out against the Islanders on Tuesday.

I hope Sundin plays Saturday against the Sens because if so we're going!

I can't wait! This is shaping up to be the most exciting playoffs in years...so much excitement right now, for teams to even make the playoffs. I'd love to see Washington make it...Ovechkin would go crazy.

(I thought your avatar was saying "no peace" for a spilt second...until my brain remembered those mushy dove candies.)

judging by how well they played against Buffalo without these two the Leafs are officially done...

Now, where should I turn my playoff loyalty too?

Canucks?!

They've actually been playing quite well lately. There's a bunch of contests around here to win tickets to the game on my birthday (2nd to last regular season game). My hockey guy wasn't able to score me seats, so I'm hoping I'll get lucky and win one of those contests!
