It’s game 4 of the eastern conference semi-finals between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Montreal Canadiens tonight at the Bell Center.
The Habs have surprised many but haven’t yet made believers out of all.
Watching game 3 I really thought it could have gone either way. The shot totals were actually a bit low for both team at 25 – 18 Penguins.
The Canadiens had a few great changes, Lapierre hitting the inside of the cross bar, Cammalleri got robbed a couple of times as was Gionta. Marc-Andre Fleury was really the difference in that game against the Habs. Even though he only faced 18 shots there were several quality scoring chances.
It’s weird, although Fleury was great in last years playoffs I’ve never quite thought of him as one of the elite goaltenders in the NHL. I really feel that if the Canadiens can put a guy in front of him and get some shots through, the goals will come. Even if tonight’s game plays out much like game 3 did I think the Canadiens have a good shot at winning game 4.
No one is invincible. Everyone can be beaten.
The Habs have shown so far that they don’t quit and we’ve got some guys who’ve both face adversity and have won it all before.
So tonight, play hard. Just like game 3. Put someone in front of Fleury…. shot the puck towards the net. Habs can win.
Game 4. Gotta win.
