Habs / Flyers: Game 5

  • The Philadelphia Flyers can eliminate the 1st seed Montreal Canadiens from the Stanley Cup Playoffs tonight with a win in Montreal.

    The Canadiens problems in this series have been well chronicled and they have the large task of winning the next 3 games in order to advance.

    Is it such a huge task? The Capitals sent their series with Philly to 7 after being down 3-1. The Bruins sent the series with the Habs to 7 after being down 3-1. The Habs have recently won a series against the Bruins in 2004 from the same 3-1 hole.

    The Canadiens have won 3 straight games 6 times this year.

    Is it that impossible?

    Don’t think for a second the Flyers are not well aware of this.

    You can pull up all the stats and superstitious games and series of the past to convince yourself the Canadiens can and will comeback. But the players are the ones who will decide it on the ice.

    Who wants it more?

    Carey Price will start. Despite his struggles in this series.

    This is the right choice.

    Carey Price had his share of ugly moments in the Habs & Bruins series. When it all came down to game 7 and big pressure, Price played terrific and earned a 5-0 shutout victory.

    Price is a pressure goaltender.

    Should the unthinkable happen, and the Flyers eliminate the Canadiens in 5 games. Carey Price needs to be in the net experiencing what that is like. No one else. Price is the goaltender of the future and he will be getting a huge dose of experience tonight, win or lose.

    The Canadiens have gone down 2-0 in all 4 games of the series. The slightest thing like scoring first could be what propels them to 3 straight wins.

    One goal at a time, one game at a time.

    Hey guys, just checking in for a second. I have company over, so I haven’t read any of the posts.

    I just wanted to interject and ask for positive energy for the 3rd period. Are you wearing your Canadiens t-shirt, jersey, or ball cap? If not, why not?

    Go Habs Go! I still have faith!!!

    LOL Joesph! You can step down from your hockey god soapbox now.

    Guess why Flyers Fans are here… Maybe it’s because after game 1 we had more Habs fans on OUR boards with absoultely no hockey knowledge. (by the way what happen to the Habs sweep)
    So I’m here life or die to make sure I personally piss you off!
    Hugs and kisses Joey!

    LOL LOL LOL, Flyers~cup2008! You’re too stupid to piss me off.

    Just so I’m clear. You took it upon yourself to stoop to the level of those uneducated folks that came to your boards. And that makes you better than them of course.

    You’re one of them.

    Incidentally, I never said anything about a sweep. In fact, I didn’t even predict a win, so you can save your nonsense, punky.

    8 goals this series, N he’s from the U.S. How many does your boy malkin have, or crosby.

    Convenient how you failed to mention where in the U.S. Umberger is from – the better half of the state. That’s right, my home town.

    Can U believe this?

    Yes. The Flyers are playing their best game of this series, in my opinion. And Price still has a ways to go before he’s an accomplished playoff goaltender.

    He looked solid in the first, but a couple of goals and he’s rattled again.

    pop goes the weasel philly fans:
    Pop Goes The WeaselAntoine, Antoine`s got something here
    Ro-roll that window
    We have to turn around because I want to shoot you
    Park the limousine, in front of the swamp
    Then I want to shoot you dauncing on the limousine
    with the swamp in the background
    It looks like you`re in the jungle, okay?

    Let`s all sing, Pop Goes the Weasel!

    [Pete Nice]
    Pop goes the, pop goes the windin of the weasel
    I see the empty pocket needs a refill

    [MC Serch]
    I got a squad with a list of complainers
    I should have started RAPE:
    Rappers Against Phony Entertainers
    So we can make it known that we won`t get swayed
    It`s ninety-one son, so somethin`s gotta change

    [Pete Nice]
    Gettin paid to peddle sneakers and soda pop (pop pop pop)
    Pop goes the weasel as drawers drop (drop drop dop)
    Why not take your top ten pop hit
    fix the music and make senseless ryhmes fit

    [MC Serch]
    I guess it`s the fact that you can`t be artistic
    Intricate raps, becomin so simplistic
    I gotta strong mind it doesn`t have to be spoon-fed
    And I can read what doesn`t have to be read

    [Pete Nice]
    So some stay illiterate and feeble, legally licked
    You go the ways of the weasel (the weasel)

    Chorus: 3rd Bass (repeat 2X)

    Pop Pop goes the weasel, the weasel *3X*
    Pop goes the weasel, `cuz the weasel goes pop

    [MC Serch]
    Hip-hop, got turned into hit pop
    the second a record was number one on the pop charts
    For those that get on heart that gotta in the ghetto
    Let no one forget about the hard part
    Now in ninety-one we got a new brand, a new band
    lookin like the same old Klan
    Same old theives that skeez so we gotta make sure
    that real rap has got to endure

    [Pete Nice]
    Why score all my points in one peroid
    Appearin in complex structure like a pyramid
    The paper for the media presence
    Ya learn lesson from the face of false legend
    Stop vexin on the skills, ya ain`t originate
    The thin ice you skate upon will break and set ya straight
    Ate up on the plate, now who`s diesel
    Not the weasel, not the weasel, pop goes the weasel

    Chorus

    [Serch] Ya stole somebody`s record then ya looped it, ya looped it
    [Pete] Ya boosted the record then ya looped it, ya looped it
    [Serch] Aiyyo, I came from Cali, and they hooped it, they hooped it
    [Pete] But now you`re getting sued kinda stoopid

    [MC Serch]
    Boosted tracks get slaps, ya got no haps
    to reach all four corners of the map
    For kids in Kansas.. to those who speak Spanish
    Doin crazy damage so the wack gets banished
    Can`t manage the truth until you buy a way
    Ya ain`t quick so ya switch off the exit from my highway
    to rest but a crook, had to take a second look
    Ever heard of a chef who can`t cook?
    But the Minister Prime can lay laws
    Hey yo, Pete Nice, rip the mic and go for yours

    [Pete Nice]
    Goes for mine, I goes for mine
    Find the Prime won`t eat the green eggs and swine
    On line like the Serch, in the hoody with the woody
    Get a disc or tape, at Sam Goody
    Why`d ya run through the doors some left open?
    Ropin off the scenes of the crime smokin
    I got pub and I`ma nut like a SCUD see
    Blowin up, like I`m throwin up a beef patty
    Sell-outs run a bout like the measles
    No cures, cause pop goes the weasels

    Stat – Only the 4th time in NHL history that a team got swept during the reguler season and beat that team in the playoffs

  46. #47 Paul says:
    May 3, 2008 at 9:55 pm

    Joe,
    True but going from the worst team in the NHL and beating the Habs and making it to the semis is pretty fun. I believe that`s only been done two others times since the 79’80 merger. Correct me if I`m wrong

  47. #48 DieHard Habs Fan says:
    May 3, 2008 at 9:55 pm

    Joe, as long as Montreal has Carbo, this team will go no where. Carbo got lucky in the reg. season. He down squat in the playoffs.

    My Hockey watching is over for this year.

    I HOPE THE FLYERS BEAT PITTS….
