Series Tied 1-1
Bell Centre
Listen to the game at [WXDX]
People keep talking about how the crowd might throw off the Penguins.
Does anyone really think that when the Pens step on the ice in Montreal they're going to be surprised that the crowd is loud?
We can't see Sidney Crosby skating onto the ice surface, looking up, seeing that the crowd is cheering and quickly retreating to the dressing room.
After the last game one of the broadcasters on CBC mentioned that the Pens would "be shocked" at the atmosphere in the Bell Centre.
Now we don't claim to be brain surgeons ourselves, but anyone with any sort of knowledge of professional hockey knows that the people of Montreal care about the sport.
We don't think the crowd is going to shock anyone until they break into their customary second intermission riot.
Even then, who would really be surprised at that?
Game three.
We've also been hearing a lot about momentum.
We've been reminded of the Capitals series and we've seen first hand how the Habs will do anything possible to shut down their opponents' offense.
Every site on the Internet has mentioned something about "not overlooking the Habs."
We never overlooked the Habs.
Neither have the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Game three.
Time to break out.
