The Canadiens put in a valiant effort tonight but were shut down in the third period by the Big Bad Bruins and are down 3-0 in the series.
They say it isn't over until the fat lady sings.
But Susan Boyle surfaced about a week ago, so we never really stood a chance.
So the big question is, WHO DO WE BLAME FOR THIS MESS OF A PLAYOFF.
Let's ask three exceptionally bright Canadiens' fans who all have their different answers.
Canadiens fan #1 is Jean-Guy. Jean-Guy enjoys pepsi and doing it doggystyle with his wife.
Canadiens fan #2 is Sean. Sean enjoys getting hammered with his buddies and then punching small animals.
Canadiens fan #3 is Raul. Raul enjoys getting excited for no reason and lighting police cars on fire.
Jean-Guy: My choice is quite easy. It is Saku Koivu. He should not be the Captain. He does not speak french and has never won Stanley Cup. He is not right for the job. He is the reason we do not win.
WRONG!!! Saku Koivu is a courageous player who went through Cancer, an almost career ending eye injury and metaphorical wounds from the Blood Thirsty Jackals. (See "French Media"). Anyone who says this should rethink that statement as the only two french speakers to have won a cup on our team are Patrice Brisebois and Mathieu Dandenault who have combined for a mind boggling 30 points in 103 games combine this year. And both have drawn the ire of the same men who think a proven warrior like Saku Koivu isn't fit to wear a "C".
Sean: Dude it's a no-brainer. Carey Price is the ONLY reason we have not done well, I mean HE LET UP FIVE GOALS IN A GAME? NO GOOD CANADIENS GOALIE HAS GIVEN UP FIVE GOALS INA GAME! I MEAN IF PATRICK ROY GAVE UP MORE THAN FIVE GOALS HE WOULD BE TRADED IN A SE....
WRONG!!! Although Carey did struggle in game two, tonight was not his fault at all. If you were an OBSERVANT fan you could clearly see the first goal was a giveaway by Komisarek, the second a poor effort by the D to cover Shawn Thornton and the third was a rebound that not even Terry Sawchuk on catnip could get to. Carey Price has made some great saves and will need an offseason to recover and try to figure out what made his season so unpredictable.
Raul: It's so SIMPLE! It's Bob Gainey and the rest of management. George Gillet and his stupid soccer team doesn't care about this city, we should definitely let Celine Dion buy the team because she would definitely understand a passionate fan like myself breaking into stores on Ste. Catharines in celebration of my love of the Team, I mean her new song IS called "Taking Chances"
Kay um stop right now...just leave. Like go cheer for the Impact or something, you're making me dumber the more you talk.
SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO who IS to blame?
I have the answer.
I will tell you.
It's Mikhail fucking Grabovski.
Flashback to three weeks ago, we are bum-rushing the Leafers and it looks like things are actually falling into place for the Habs.
Mathieu Schneider is on fire, Andrei Markov is on pace to become the first Defenseman in like 70 years to lead the Canadiens in scoring and the NHL default line is ripping shit up.
We are competing for 6th, 5th and 4th place in the East, it seems like a possibility.
But then, oh then that little bitch of a Belarussian who likes like a damn developing 11 year old girl decides to lay a hit on Andy Marks.
He leaves the game, and since that game we have gone 0-7-1.
Am I just being ridiculous since i'm in some kind of emotional denial that the Canadiens are done like dinner? Or am I actually on to something?
Decide for yourself.
Peace (Since there's not that much to believe in anymore)
