Liveblogging Game 5

• Lesson for today, if the game doesn’t start at 7, don’t assume that it starts at 8. I got in 30 minutes late and it’s already 1-0 Carolina.
• When I was living in Chapel Hill, the crowd at the Dean Dome had the nickname “wine and cheese crowd” because of their tendency to sit on their hands. Looks like a lot of them got Hurricane tickets.
• Nice way to start the period, Carolina gets hit with a high sticking penalty.
• The three of us have all noticed how the energy level seems to be lower than the past two games.
• After seeing the Canadien bench, it looks like the no shaving tradition is still alive and well.
• Maybe it’s just me but it appears that most of the Canadien’s shots on goal are coming from the back corners.
• Markov gets a delay of game penalty for throwing the puck out of the field. Dumb!
• Really really dumb! 2-0 Carolina.
• Kovalev got a great slap shot in but unfortunately it bounced off the goal post. It almost sounded like a whistle and I was wondering why they kept on playing.
• Score by Kovalev! 2-1.
• Second time Carolina starts a period with a penalty. They bumped Huet, make them pay!
• Very uninspiring and sloppy passing during that critical power play. A goal right now would have been huge.
• What’s the deal with throwing the puck across the blue line during a power play?
• Another penalty for goaltender interference. Montreal’s powerplays have been anemic today.
• Lasted about 35 seconds before Souray gets a penalty of his own. Got it while trying to stop a 2 against 1 breakaway.
• Both goalies are red hot tonight, Ward stopped two slapshots and right after, Huet was solid against a breakaway. 3:30 to go.
• Just like two days ago, we get a penalty with less than 3 minutes to go and we have to play defense instead of tying that darn thing.
• They were playing better with a man down than during all of their powerplays. Time out with seconds to go.
• It’s over, Carolina wins again. I have watched three games and the end result have been somewhat dissapointing…to say the least.

    Um, it’s the CANADIENS, not the Canadians!
