Oh another thing.. Gary Gailey is really getting on my nerves.

Yeah he sounds to me like Greg Millen's long lost twin. I thought Millen was back doing color. It's uncanny.

Gotta admit, I wish we picked on Perry. Now that bastard is always in the middle of all the crap every game, it's amazing.

Vegas 3/5 of their goals in the series so far right off faceoff wins. Montreal needs to cover those D better.

You just know Bob Stauffer will be commenting on the amount of goals directly off faceoff wins by Vegas to push his constant narrative of how the Oilers need to be better on draws.

Hey, didn't you see the segment last game about DeBore having his own private faceoff play sessions? :)

Montreal looking bad on those goals. Vegas D getting the puck wide open, Montreal allowing nice screens to get in position. The clean loss of the faceoffs don't help either of course.

Well crap. Make that 4/6 of Vegas's goals right off faceoff wins.

Just when I start thinking I wouldn't mind seeing the Habs win so my dad, grandfather, father in law, and other non annoying fans could experience the euphoria of their team winning, I wake up this morning and Facebook quickly reminds me why this simply can't happen. They're as bad as Leafs fans. Worse maybe.

Nah, they're not worse- Laffs fans are arrogant despite the fact that their team hasn't won a Cup since the Ice Age. The Habs are the winningest team with regards to Cups including being the last Canadian city to win one, so their fans have more to talk about than those of other Canadian teams.

Meh - historical accomplishments mean nothing at this point. And I live in an area where in a room of 20 people, you will have like 8 Leaf fans, 8 Habs fans, 2 Bruins, and 2 from all other teams. They are equally loud, and equally annoying. The Habs fans probably even more. I hate the Leafs more because of the media I think.

Most of the Habs fans I've seen including some I work with are taking the attitude of just enjoying the ride while it lasts, as they didn't think their team would get this far into the playoffs. It's similar to most Oil fans during the 2006 run. I haven't seen much arrogance among them, though that would likely change if the Habs were somehow to actually win the Cup.

I think alot of this depends on geography.
West of Ont I have not found Habs fans to be bad. I have seen them play 3 times when they are on the road and the Habs fans were a lot of fun to watch a game with.
Ont East, I agree with Mike, they can be as bad As Leafs fans. Leafs fans are consistent for the most part wherever you come across them.

I've always hated Habs and Leafs fans. Didn't like going to Oilers game when over a third of the rink seems to be cheering for the wrong team.

I think it may be a character flaw not to cheer for the Oilers - despite all the misery that that entails.

The penalty leading to Tampa's GWG tonight was the kind of play done to McDavid over a dozen times in our series. Someone bumps into Kucherov in open ice to slow him down a bit with the puck nowhere close.

Only 2 penalties in the game, that one for Tampa's PP was given 1 minute after the Islanders one PP expired. So, refs just looking for an even up ASAP. Then back to calling nothing. Classic NHL.

The sticks in the hands when the guy is carrying the puck isn't being called at all, except when they need an excuse to "manage" the game, and the interference without the puck is like rugby. With all the skill and talent in the NHL today, its bizarre that they want to choke it out of the game, scoring chances are few, and the pucks that go in usually are due to screens, or bounces, not usually generated by a high skill or high speed play.

Bettman doesn't want to anger his American overlords. That man seriously should get monogrammed knee pads FFS. Good thing the Habs pulled it out despite the obvious conspiracy to keep Vegas idiots interested in this team.

Follow the $$$. There is way more money in Vegas getting through and the NHL is desperate for whatever they can get now. I don't think this league could help themselves but do all they can to try to nudge that balance. Go Montreal!

Price better watch out for dudes carrying crowbars! Gary probably lining someone up :)

1 Cup

Isles were up 3-0 in the 3rd, Tampa scores 2 to make it 3-2.

Trotz calls a timeout.

Was there something written in Todd McLellan’s and Dave Tippett’s contracts to never call a time out in the playoffs? It’s like that’s immediately what Trotz did and he’s talking to his bench.

lol, you know you've done something wrong when almost every Oilers fan that watched this game are all making the same comment. GOod move. And holy crap what a save by Pulock at the end. Tanev should take notes, although, not looking promising for him to play in the playoffs again any time soon.

I cant remember a worse playoff season in a VERY long time.
- reffing is atrocious, every single team in the playoffs should be pissed off. It's open season on skill and brutality is thriving. The best hockey team isnt winning games/series
- to the above, "highlights" are cheap shots that weren't called, ricochet or garbage goals and frustrated players and coaches being asked about reffing every night.
- there isn't a single team worth cheering for. They are all so unlikable for various reasons. As an Oiler fan, I am a seasoned playoff bandwagon jumper.

Maybe some change will come, every round and almost every game, more mainstream, big following media types are commenting on a reffing reset being needed.

If it wasn't for the couple exciting players on the Oilers I would be real close to becoming an extremely casual hockey fan. As in, zero dollars spent, watch the odd game, check the box scores and watch the daily highlights.

This is boring.

I was kinda on the Islanders bandwagon, but there was this twitter video of an old fart going around yesterday. Some media guy for the Islanders that was arguing that a dynasty HAS TO have won 3 cups in 3 straight years and you're stupid if you put the 80's Oilers on the same level as the Islanders that won 4 stright.

So yeah...screw the Islander too icon_lol

Darn, Ken Holland was so close to a dynasty! Did you know he once traded for Chris Chelios when going for the 3peat?

Holland seems dumb now. Why did he think it was a bad thing to try to become the 1st dynasty since the Islanders? Fire him immediately before he wimps out and messes up our 3-peat!

Its funny, the NHL and their Networks want tp promote their product, they'll show clips of high skill goals by all the best players.. then in the playoffs they Ensure that you won't see any of those goals, or high skill plays by those same players they actively promoted. The interference without the puck, sticks in hands, cross checks, hooking, is non-stop.

All the games seem to be low chance, low scoring, any goals scored are off of rebounds, seeing eye screen shots, bad bounces, bad line changes, goofs (MAF!).. basically no one is able to CREATE goal scoring chances, they just happen, resulting from mistakes, bounces, screen shots. Games are now two teams playing a neutral zone trap waiting for opposition mistakes or bounces, no free flow, no play making, or goal chance creation going on.
