Stanley Cup Final set and a few Habs links

So I guess the world has  at least four more games of hearing Jack Edwards' nauseating remarks this season.

Congratulations go out though to the Boston Bruins, who survived a pair of seven-game series that could have gone either way, and are off to face the Vancouver Canucks for the Stanley Cup.

Equal props to Guy Boucher, who felt he was ready to coach in the NHL, and took the Tampa Bay Lightning to the Eastern Conference Final. Steve Yzerman took notes from his time in the Detroit Red Wings office, to quickly build a contending team in the east. They'll be back next year.

The lone goal of the game, from Nathan Horton with 7:33 remaining, was all that separated a trip to the west coast from a trip home.

The Bruins and Lightning played Game Seven without a single penalty, the first penalty-free playoff game in 21 years.

Do the Bruins have enough gas to handle a well-rested Canucks team? Does Tim Thomas have another series left in him? Of note, the Boston netminder has allowed one goal in 3 career starts vs. Vancouver (3-0, 0.33 GAA, .990 SvPct).

We'll get our answers starting next Wednesday night.

In the meantime, here's a few links to catch up on for the Montreal faithful.
