If the Habs score here on this PP, I think it's all but over.  Toronto will be gripping too hard and I don't see them coming back from down 2-0 entering the 3rd.

So it’s 2-0 montreal going into the third, but it’s worth mentioning that montreal has spoiled a 2-0 lead in game 6 and a 3-0 lead in game 5 — they won both games in overtime, but Toronto has shown the guts to come back.

Toronto juts had a PP with 7min left in the game and Price made some ridiculous saves, but the Leafs also seem completely snakebitten.  It's pretty crazy.  Just wasn't meant to be for them.  I don't feel the least bit bad for them, but it's just somewhat remarkable how much they choke year after year.

Didn't they bow out to us one year (2000?), managing a whopping SIX shots on goal? Am I remembering that correctly?

Yep.   I think you’re right, game 6 of 2000 2nd round?

I think both top heavy Canadian teams were hurt by playing in the charmin soft North division this year.   After having all the space in the world to rack up video game stats all year playing 5 other sh!tty Canadian teams, all of the big boys looked like they had trouble adjusting to the tight checking in the playoffs, which is where the Oilers and Leafs lack of any type of depth was exposed

Matthews and especially Marner will take all of the heat this off-season but how the hell do the Leafs continue on with Kyle Dubas as GM?  It’s one thing for their fans to anoint this core as the second coming of the Blackhawks dynasty before they’ve done a thing but for Dubas to have paid them as such is unforgivable.   If that wasn’t bad enough, he’s done nothing to surround those skilled players with any type of help other than signing fan boy Tavares.   He’s somewhere between 2 and 10 years too late on having guys like Thornton, Spezza and Simmons fill out the roster and actually all be on the ice in a Game 7 situation.    After the series he just had, Dubas will probably try to add Corey Perry as well this offseason.

Wow that’s a really interesting bit of info. I guess you can’t buy success, at least not in a single player.
