I know it's only one game but I don't get it, how does a team so average in the regular season play so well in the playoffs, if they keep playing the way they did last night, you never know. It would suck large, but you never know.

Playoff Carey Price.

Hockey is the only professional sport that calls the rules completely differently in the postseason than the regular season.   Montreal benefits from being allowed to play interference style hockey in a way that they don't get to do in the regular season.

That and Carey Price is good.  He was not good in the regular season.  Montreal would have had a better record in the regular season if Price was playing with a .930 SV% in the regular season.

Haha. What a joke...Habs get dominated and win lol. Everything is going their way. Vegas' top centre is out...3 straight series with key centres going out for the opposition.

The stars are definitely aligning for them.

So, Habs fans are up in arms over a loss and blaming it on the refs. Any truth?

I'm not sure if the complaints are sound, but live by the bad reffing, die by the bad reffing.

They had a beef in the 3rd game with the high stick but last night it was bad for both sides. It didn't cost them the game though.

I mean, we all know how consistent and by-the-book NHL officials are . . .

It's the playoffs. Every team has had to battle through crappy officiating. By this point, if you can't push through it, you don't deserve to win.
