The Morning Skate for Wednesday, April 16th

Bullet points for what you missed while having nightmares of knee surgery...
  • Goodbye everyone! Black is white, down is up, left is right, and Breezer is the hero as the Habs win 1-0 and take a 3-1 series lead. TFS was pretty ok too. More later;
  • Flames get a whole 10 shots in the game and lose 3-2 thanks to Joe Thornton's winner with 9-2 seconds left. Joe Thornton as playoff clutch? Damn, it is bizarro world;
  • Danny Brière looks more like the MVP than Ovie in the Flyers 6-3 win over Caps, getting 2G and 1A. BOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Sorry, just warming up for any Habs-Flyers series to come;
  • In case you missed it, Jose Theodore has been excellent (really!) and last night he helped the Avs tie their series against the Wild with a 5-1 win;
  • Ducks finally realise the playoffs started, take Game 3 with a 4-2 win.

Paging Habs offence, you're needed in surgery.

The Good-Price & we're up 3-1 and going home.
The Bad-PP, Markov, Higgins, Ryder,Plekanec & Streit and the fact it could easily be 1-3.

Glad to see the Habs are throwing the body (much more than I expected pre-playoff)but going hit for hit vs the Flyers in the next round is not a solid game plan.
The youngsters have to stop chasing the puck around in our own zone, someone needs to get in front of the net on the PP. Should we fill out a missing persons report on the offense?

So... Is it time for a new Halak post?
