Last Word on Habs Pod: Moving On
The guys come back on a very special episode of the pod to discuss the Habs big game seven win over the Toronto Maple Leafs. While a game seven is always stressful, the guys talk about how it didn’t quite feel the same pressure or stress for this one. The feeling was aided by the Leafs lack of urgency in the game, which was surprising.
What was also surprising was the fact the Habs came back from a 3-1 series deficit to knock their rivals out of the playoffs. Surprising and joyous. The game followed several tropes for the Leafs in their game seven disappointments. A bad goal, a lack of urgency, no production from their top players. While a lot of focus will be spent on the Leafs playoff failures, the Habs are moving on to face the well-rested Winnipeg Jets. It will be interesting to see how the Habs change their game plan against the bigger Jets. The guys are both picking the Habs to win then series and game one will be vital.
All this and lineup decisions, Leafs fans, the Habs playoff schedule, and much much more!
