If Team Canada picks Brodeur, Crosby and Lucic to be on their team for the Olympics, I’m cheering for Russia. Sorry Canada, but there is no way in hell I’m going to cheer for a team that has Lucic on it. No bleeping way. The guy is a moron. And that’s putting it nicely.
But aside from the morons on the ice, the morons in the stands and the morons in black and white, the Caps, Bulldogs, and Habs didn’t help themselves one bit today. They simply did not put up enough effort, enough emotion, and in the case of the Habs, they were too undisciplined tonight to win. Fine, fine, so some of those calls weren’t real and there was no way in hell that the Bruins only went to the PK ONCE at the end of the period but still… the Habs were not playing like a team. Price and Kovy showed up and we saw glimpses of other people but on a whole…the team didn’t show up.
Which baffles me completely. It’s a playoff game, people. I know you’re tired and demoralized but just flopping over and quitting isn’t really a great option. I said this before but I’ll say it again: I don’t give a damn if the Habs are swept in four games PROVIDED that they go down fighting. If they lose the next two games playing like they did tonight, I will not be a very happy person. This team is very much capable of at least making Boston’s lives miserable. They can do it. I realize that this isn’t the ideal matchup and we didn’t get the ideal seed going into the playoffs. But honestly…. suck it up, guys. Moping ain’t going to change who you’re playing. Essentially we’re seeing the same two teams from last year. There isn’t that much of a difference. The difference appears to be in their heads right now.
Right now the Bruins are playing like a team while the Habs… aren’t. And damnit, the Habs better snap out of this depressed “woe is me, can we just finish this already so I can go crawl into a whole and die” attitude or else I’m watching the Wings full time. Crazily enough, I still believe in these guys. I still believe that they can get it together and actually win a game or at least give Boston everything that they’ve got.
So there we have it. I’m still trying to figure out why 1) the networks and media all seem to be against the Habs and 2) why the hell my teams didnt’ show up to play. They treated it like it was a game in the middle of February and 3) why it feels like the refs were completely biased against the Hammies and the Habs tonight….
Oh and..whoever thought the Habs game was bad…. I assure you Troy the movie was a lot worse…. Watching Brad Pitt pretending to be a Greek is like watching Milan Lucic trying to give an interview.
