Another upset. Shows the difference between a "team" and "stars".

As far as Boston/Philadelphia goes, I don't really care who wins as long as Lucic and Carcillo have a head-on collision at centre ice. \:D

Goes to show how important goaltending is. If Fleury plays like he did last year Pens win the series. Or if Montreal and Pittsburgh swap goalies Pens win the series.

Unbelievable run for Montreal, given how they almost missed the playoffs but then proceeded to upset arguably the two top teams. Let's hope they can keep it up.

To the defense of the Canadiens, the reason why they almost missed the playoffs is that they kept having injuries to core players everytime they were getting a bit of momemtum. It is a better team than their regular season indicates and are now playing as a team with drive.

Still... pretty impressive...

I'm sure the Caps celebrated as hard as the Habs last night; they can now tell their fans "see, even Crosby could not beat them"!

True, for sure, and I could say "someone still had to score the goals" but I think, more importantly. The Halak story is all part of that 'greater feeling'. FOr instance, had things been reversed one might have been saying the same things about Crosby. Not that he is the only strong player on the Pens but he was definitely expected to carry the flag.

The difference is that Crosby is an International superstar with a well proven track record who was under great pressure to help carry the team to victory. Halak rose from relative vacuity before the playoffs started. Making him another great part of the total underdog victory story.
