We lost because Galch didn't play enough. We lost because Galch played too much. We lost because we hit too much. We lost because we get hit too much.

Galchenyuk has always looked scared when the game is rough. Also his stick is 7" to long.

I've enjoyed the first round because I made a conscious decision to be careful not to get sucked into sports radio or any print media. I may turn it on at 8 as they may have Mckenzie or someone on then, if not, it goes off. No Marinaro, no Melnick until after 4 when Ferraro or someone comes on, then off you go. I don't think I have better ideas than CJ and I don't think the likes of our local radio pundits know more than me. I just want to know what Artie thinks.

I dont think its about getting bigger.

The habs hit everything that moved for 40 minutes and controlled the game. Then they ran out of gas and the rangers took over with speed not size.

Good man. The habs lost because of a lucky bounce off Emelin's stick.

These teams are too closely matched. Luck is by far the biggest factor. The only possibly differing factor was goaltending, and those have been relative non factors (Lundqvist having a bit of an edge, actually).

We've seen really good hockey for the most part. I've also tuned out all this stuff a long time ago the day I realized I was getting stressed out by things totally out of my control.

They're almost mirror teams. Mtl owned the first half of the game but didn't profit from it enough. NYR owned the last half and got the last goal. Of course playing better and controlling the flow would've helped in the ot, but it was an eb and flo game, same as the whole series and it flowed that way in ot. Mtl is a bit better at keeping chances to the outside, Rangers have a bit more 1 on 1 offense, but if they play 100 times it'll be 51-49.

And then leaning on your window sill
He'll say one day you caused his will
To weaken with your love and warmth and shelter
And then taking from his wallet
An old schedule of trains, he'll say
I told you when I came I was a stranger
I told you when I came I was a stranger.

Except they arent.

Sportsnet had an article on this yesterday. In the first four games he had 7 high danger scoring chances (chances max converts just under 25% of the time normall) and numerous other medium danger chances (stuff he converts just under 10% of the time normally). It then compared him to everyone else in the series. The only guy at that level is nash.

In addition to the stats there was a compiliation video of his chances.

The explanation that his shots are perimeter doesnt hold up when you watch the video.
