The disallowed isf****** unreal, guess Lindback and the Lightning wants at least one Canadien team to advance.

 

FIFY

 

The fault lies solely on Lindback and the Lightning defense who really sucked it in games 1 and 2.  Game 3 may be remembered for the blown call, but games 1 and 2 were earned by Montreal.  As I said before, good teams don't let the refs or bounces decide a series.

I think Tampa Bay got a raw deal in the game today, but the refs don't decide a series.  Good teams find a way to win over bad bounces or bad calls.  Montreal deserved the first two games of this series.  Lindback is a decent goalie, but his save percentage was .887 and his GAA was at 3.70 in the first two games.

 

Montreal deserves a lot of credit for their inspired performance so far.

Two postgame thoughts:

 

The other team is allowed to improve. There's no point sighing about how game 2 was different from game 1. Assuming Boston wouldn't be able to come up with a better effort in game 2 just isn't realistic.

 

Howard didn't have a very good game, but the loss wasn't all on him -- or even mostly on him. If he had allowed 2 goals in each of the first two games, on the road against the #1 seed, he'd have a better GAA, and would have demonstrated consistency on the road, and the wings would be down 2-zip. 

 

If you score 2 goals in 2 games on the road against the 1-seed, and you go back home with a split, that's kind of incredible. Credit to Howard for stealing one. 

 

Now, it's up to the rest of the team to figure out how to win a game *without* needing Howard to steal it.

 

This is the best post in this thread.

 

We really need to come up with a way to score more goals.  Did anyone expect Howard to win this game with us only scoring one goal two games in a row?  I know i didn't. 

 

The Bruins defense is tough, no question.  We need to find a way to penetrate that D and score some goals.  If we give Howard some goal support, we will be in good shape.  If we continue to only score 1 goal per game, we aren't going to win many more games.

Ok NOW this game is over.  They can score on the PP and we can't.

 

Isn't that their first powerplay goal of the series?

Now that is one Howard should have had.  No doubt.
