- This is it, the all important Game 82!
- This awful, awful, AWFUL season is finally, finally, FINALLY coming to an end.
- What a heartbreaking tribute to the Humboldt Broncos.
- Oh great, its time to listen to “hurray the Leafs made the playoffs” praise for approximately the next 60 odd minutes.
- Contrary to what the broadcast may have you believe, the Habs are the better team halfway through the first. Montreal has been outshooting and outworking their opponents.
- Brendan Gallagher has been one of the lone bright spots in a rather forgettable season, setting a new career high by putting up 53 points and scoring 31 goals.
- The Habs were doing so well until the last 5 minutes of the period, after which they tried their damn best to allow whichever Leaf forward with the puck to skate up to Carey Price with impunity.
- Yay, it’s time for the penalty kill! Whatever could possibly go wrong? You already know whats going to go wrong.
- And just like that the Habs are down a goal.
- Lots of Leafs doing Leafs things to start the period. Accompanied by a lot of, “wow look at the Leafs doing Leafs things” from the broadcast. This is truly a season to forget.
- Time for a Montreal power play. What is the over/under on the Habs giving up a short handed chance?
- Time for another Montreal power play. What is the over/under on the Habs doing something different this time around?
- At least Jeff Petry looks good out there, giving another solid performance despite the circumstances.
- Carr did the thing! As an aside, thank you Roman Polak for the helpful assist on the play. Running into your own goalie is a strategy I hope you continue to use in the playoffs.
- The Canadiens nearly got out of the period without a scratch, before deciding that the last two minutes of the second was the best time to give the Leafs another power play.
- The Habs gave up another goal in the opening minute of a period. Colour me surprised.
- Komarov up to his usual shenanigans, this time trying to run Price over. Though Price seriously seemed to consider landing a few punches in response, he wisely settled for a Habs power play.
- In retrospect, Carey Price should have probably just punched him, seeing as his team immediately responded by giving the Leafs yet ANOTHER power play. At least this time it didn’t lead to a goal.
- McCarron helps put the Leafs back on the power play. Kadri says thank you very much by scoring. The Leafs now possess an insurmountable 2-goal lead.
- Habs pull Price in a desperate attempt to...well who knows at this point. But hey, at least Alex Galchenyuk scored. Or was it Petry? Ah, who cares.
- At long last this season has finally come to a merciful end (but not before giving up another goal). See you all next season, when we can do this all again folks!
