Pre Game Thoughts
-Best of luck to Devan Dubnyk and Pekka Rinne as they battle for second place in the Vezina trophy race.
-There are no lineup changes because Michel Therrien likes to live dangerously I guess.
-(I haven't done one of these since Game 5 against New York last year so bear with me)
-New game count the amount of times a broadcast says "microfracture".
-Alright Habs do the thing
-Too much man on Ottawa!
-And it seems Dave Cameron understands the only way to stop the Habs momentum is to give them a powerplay.
-Say what you will about the Sens but watching Erik Karlsson play the sport of hockey is a treat.
-It took the Sens 8:42 seconds to get a shot on Carey Price...That seems good right?
-Or not, look at the
intencity intansety intensity on that Bobby Ryan goal!
-So Chiasson gets praised for blindsiding Jeff Petry who was nowhere near the puck...K then.
-Lars Eller's beard is the stuff of Danish legends.
-Oh well that's less than desirable-Sens up 2-0
-Let's see what Twitter had to say after that period shall we?
For the love of all that is holy please take Devante Smith-Pelly off the first line. I've seen fish with better hands.— Cory S. (@Corynoscopy) April 24, 2015
"Hey kids, dad found a sports bar in LA so he is going to be less anxious."— Doug (@Drdougboston) April 24, 2015
"Now he's going to be angry." I hate hockey.
Oh well...Maybe the second period will be better?
-I spy Pacioretty with Pleky and Gallagher and this pleases me greatly.
-I may have misheard but did Glenn Healy just use plus/minus to prop up Cody Ceci as a star in this series?
-Dale Weise with a clutch penalty to start the period!
-And now Price takes a delay of game penalty because when it rains it pours for the Habs.
-Except the Habs PK is better than their PP which is terribly sad.
-Mark Stone high sticks Alexei Emelin which is the rough equivalent of...Some sort of equally stupid metaphor or something.
-Okay I went and changed jerseys let's see if this helps.
-First time I've noticed David Desharnais all night and of course it's because he took a stupid penalty.
-Was only a matter of time before Erik Karlsson did something like that.
-(Internally cries even more)
-So we're all agreed that Parenteau has to draw in next game right?
-GILBO BAGGINS SCORES!!
-HA Bobby Ryan own goal!
-First career NHL point for Greg Pateryn too!
-Emelin made a great play without a stick, no I'm totally serious you guys.
-Fun fact Eller is Danish for "incredible backcheck".
-Alexei Emelin:The four million dollar pylon
-Mark Borowiecki sure seems tough bum rushing and attacking a guy half his size in Brendan Gallagher.
-For the love of the old gods and the new Habs please score on this powerplay.
-(Insert complaint about DD on the powerplay here)
-(Insert all the expletives about the powerplay here)
-You let Condra score on a breakaway...I'm fairly certain that's as bad as it gets Habs.
-CBC sounds like they're on the bench for Ottawa right now with how happy they sound.
-Oh yay let's end the game with pointless shenanigans!
-Salt meet wound...5-1 Sens and we're off to Kanata.
EOTP Three Stars
Gilbert scored, that's it.
