The one group that isn't powerless in this situation? The players. The Habs and the Penguins are the teams who (along with the Blues, especially given the latest news about David Perron) have been among the hardest hit by the NHL's Caveman attitude and jocular attitude towards violence in this sport we all love.
Secondly, God, does it feel good to beat Montreal. Montreal isn't even close to being as good as the Penguins, but they've found ways to win the last four games. It was so nice to finally see the Pens get a two-goal lead and watch Montreal completely wither away. Such a joke. And it was even better to read Habs fans on blogs and Twitter whining about officiating.
