Habs Book T-Times; B’s Book Flight To Second Round

Kovalev Golfing

A quick note, I meant to post this last night, but my computer called it quits at the end of the Hawk game. Something tells me it may have called it quits for good.

It goes without saying the Bruins swept the Canadiens tonight in an absolute route. I’m pretty beat right now from staying up to watch the Blackhawks make the comeback of a lifetime only to lose it on a bogus non-call. Stanley Cup of Chowder has a great breakdown of the Bruins/Canadiens game. I did want to mention one thing, Price’s jesture towards the fans was, well, priceless. Way to go Montreal, way to stick it to the player the franchise is building around. Your antics never surprise me. NHL.com has some great coverage on it. Basically Higgins and Laraque think you’re a joke.

Chris Higgins, another forward, agreed.

“We had 100 percent faith in him,” Higgins said. “The goalie is always going to face a lot of heat when the team does bad. In this city, you face a lot more than in others. It’s a tough situation for him to be in, especially when we’re losing and people start getting on him. It’s really hard on him. He plays with his heart.”
 
Laraque was even more blunt, expressing anger not only at the mocking of Price, but also the chants of “Carbo” — references to
Guy Carbonneau, who was fired by Gainey as coach last month — that began to make the rounds of the Bell Centre in the last five minutes of the game.

“To blame Carey like that, singularly, is very frustrating,” Laraque said. “We have the best fans in the world because it’s sold out every game; but best fans means they are proud of the team, whether you win or you lose.
           
“The best fans don’t embarrass our coach, they don’t embarrass our team, they don’t embarrass the players, they don’t embarrass the goalie. When you’re a proud
Montreal Canadiens fan, you bleed the Canadiens; you don’t do stuff like that.”

The press conference is here.

Links from around the NHL – 3.26 – Ovechkin can dance and juggle a soccer ball at the same time

  • Once again Alexander Oveckin tells it how it is with his new apparel (above) and great quote (below). I can only imagine the amazing Russian techno that Ovechkin rocks out to before the game… (Via CBC Sports & EmptyNetter)

“If you win the lottery — a million dollars — you go to the bar and drink a lot,” Ovechkin said. “I scored 50 goals and I just celebrated.”

“I play myself, I enjoy my life, I have enjoyed my whole career. If somebody don’t like it, don’t watch my game, don’t watch what I’m doing on the ice.”
