MONTREAL GAZETTE/CSNNE.COM: While the Canadiens try to accentuate the positives following their Game 2 collapse, the Bruins will try aiming higher with their shots on Carey Price.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Most of the Bruins’ goals in Game Two beat Price up high, but he was also screened on most of them. They must continue to get consistent traffic in front of Price. As for the Habs, they must do a better job clearing bodies from in front of Price, as well as taking care not to screen him themselves.

EDMONTON JOURNAL: David Staples noted Oilers defenseman Jeff Petry rebounded well under first-year coach Dallas Eakins, comparing him favorably to former Oiler Tom Gilbert.

CALGARY HERALD: Flames prospect Sven Baertschi has been added to the Swiss roster for the World Championship in Belarus.


  1. For the Habs, if your going to stand in front of Price then get your ass in front of the shot. No flamingo’ing. That’s how they got 2 of their goals last game and Price either didn’t see it or it hit something and went in.

    Bigger issue is keeping the pressure when the whistles get pocketed in the third and the bruins to back to interference city to get the upper hand. Have to react better. Habs should be up 2-0 in this series.

    • Just as easy to say Bruins should be up 2-0 in this series. Game one for Bruins saw more than a couple posts, while also having twenty something more shots on net than the Habs. They also carried the play during the 3rd period and 1st OT. Rask has not been himself so far in this series especially game one. If he is better than just OK in game one Bruins win that game. Plus Price played out of his mind in game one which at times could not be said for his teammates not named Subban.

      • the series is and should be 1 1 they both In a way blew games the habs just have to keep using their speed against the big slow and a few of them dumb bruins habs in 6

  2. I think it will be the Bruins in 6…The Bruins are built for war and adversity. Not many other teams are…Habs are on a nice run and they did well to snag a game from Boston on the road, don’t be surprised if it all comes crashing down in the next two games in Montreal
