The Canadiens will be counting on Carey Price to pull them even in their best-of-seven Eastern Conference quarter- final series against the Washington Capitals tonight at the Bell Centre (7 p.m., TSN, RDS, CJAD Radio-800).
While Canadiens head coach Jacques Martin said he would wait until this morning to name his starting goaltender, all the signs point to Price over Jaroslav Halak .
As NHL hockey fans, we all know that playoff hockey is a completely different game. While regular season hockey provides months of entertainment, the style of game played in the spring is unrivaled.
Long after the snow and ice have left the rivers and lakes of North America, men who grew up playing on those frozen ponds take to hockey’s biggest stage in their annual quest for the Stanley Cup.
It might seem like a crazy overstatement to say a team with the possibility of tieing a series with a victory in Game 4 is done like a smoked meat sandwich at 3 a.m. (extra fat, please), but the rye bread and the Washington Capitals look like they’re squeezing the Montreal Canadiens.
Pass the napkins, please.
While many fans might want the Edmonton Oilers to get out the wrecking ball or a wheelbarrow full of dynamite and completely blow up the current roster, don’t count on it.
As disgruntled as you might be, you can’t knock it down all at once.
