Montreal Canadiens Win NHL Eastern Conference Semi Finals in Pittsburgh

 

I did this back in the first round of the NHL postseason, as there were quite a few former members of the Calgary Flames making some sort of impact on their playoff team.  Well, now, as the Western and Eastern Conference Finals are underway, I thought I'd go back and track how some of these former members were doing.

For years, the identity of the true culprit in the Boston Bruins' too-many-men infraction against the Montreal Canadiens in the 1979 playoffs was somewhat of a mystery.

Pittsburgh Penguins Malkin hangs his head after losing to the Montreal Canadians in their NHL game in Pittsburgh

 

I watched the Habs take down the Penguins in the second round and beyond being struck by how uncanny the Canadiens current run is (remind you of '04 anyone?) I also came away thoroughly unimpressed with Evgeni Malkin, a player I rarely get to see much of here on the West Coast.

He made a lot of questionable decisions with the puck on his stick in the offensive zone. Drop pass to nobody type stuff. I think I even heard Bertuzzi sigh in frustration a couple of times.

Much like the fan who shot the - ahem - "rap" video above, you have to hand it to the Montreal Canadiens for not only knocking off the Washington Capitals but now impossibly the Pittsburgh Penguins as well.
