OK we know #Habs fans love PK Subban but...

MONTREAL, QC - APRIL 18: Guillaume Morisette (L) and Sara Lachance (R) ham it up outside before Game Three of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals between the Boston Bruins and the Montreal Canadiens during the 2011 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at Bell Centre on April 18, 2011 in Montreal, Canada.

There's certainly no argument that fans of the Montreal Canadiens love the play and swagger of rookie defenseman P.K. Subban. But I think this fan took it a tad too far in this tribute video. Then again, it is the 21st Century.

 

 

Now back to business of a crucial Game Four between the Montreal Canadiens and Boston Bruins.

It's not official, but there's a good chance that Jeff Halpern will be back in the Habs lineup and will replace Benoit Pouliot. Halpern played on a line with Lars Eller and Travis Moen during Wednesday's practice, while Pouliot was an odd man out.

After an optional morning skate today, coach Jacques Martin wouldn't tip his hat as to who will, or will not play. "There's probably a pretty good chance that Jeff will be in tonight," Martin said. "He brings experience, leadership, he's a good player away from the puck and he can also help us on faceoffs." Pouliot may still get a day pass out of the Martin dog house though. Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette later tweeted that Martin noted that other players are nursing injuries.

The Bruins sent forward Chris Kelly back to Boston on Wednesday to be checked for a possible facial fracture. Claude Julien remains optimistic on Kelly's return, If he is unable, expect Tyler Seguin to get his first taste of playoff action.

Tim Thomas ain't all that according to Philip Myrland. But it's something most of us here have known for a while.

Chris Boucher evaluates the Habs through three games and his breakdown of Game Three.

My prediction: Provided they stick to their game plan of the first two games for 60 minutes, Habs 4-1 (fourth goal is an empty netter.) If they don't, the Bruins blow it wide open.
