I saw a lot of Stock when he played in the AHL and he seemed like a guy who could make a career out of being one of those little gritty annoying guys who draws retaliatory penalties and just generally makes the other team hate him, but he really never stuck in the NHL. He never seemed like a particularly insightful guy that you'd want doing studio stuff, and from what you're saying he doesn't seem like he's particularly good at it. I did love watching the guy play though.

The games in Philly will be interesting. I think ice quality will come into play. The Montreal ice was very good IMO, that coupled with the fast boards really made for a quick up-tempo game that favored the Habs...Philly on the other hand has always had slower ice and that should help the Flyers D some. Still better than the Washington ice which wasn't so much slow as just plain bad, pucks bouncing all over etc.

Speaking of Hockey Night in Canada, that new guy, PJ Stock I think his name is, really irritates me.


Oh, Don

What a shit period for the Habs a double powerplay and another powerplay at the end of the period and the best they can do is a post

Actually, that's three posts and an open net if you're keeping score at home.

I'm not worried, though. Keep playing like that and the bounces are bound to go your way!

Great point. The ice definitely seems to be a factor in what we're seeing tonight so far...very scrappy play, with passes being missed on both sides.

I still think the Kostitsyn brothers are bound to do great things in Philadelphia. (Someone needs to ask why I think this is the case.)

Damn! 1-0 Flyers.

It must really be off now.

I think they should replace Price, but just for the third. It'll jolt everyone into playing for their lives.

Ouch. Not the greatest game so far! Hopefully Montreal can turn it around in the 3rd.

I just pulled out half of my hair. Crazy ending.

Koivu played incredibly well in a losing cause, Biron was great yet again, and I'm betting the intensity at the end will spill over into an incredible game 4.

Back to you, Ron.

Okay, the shots were something like 31-14 in favour of Montreal.

Bodes well for the next game or two, I reckon

I wish I was wrong, actually.

Well, I guess we'll see what the team is made of on Wednesday night!
