Montreal Is Burning

Where were you on April 21st, 2008?

In round one of the playoffs the Canadiens held a commanding 3-1 lead over the Boston Bruins. Fans and media alike thought this series was over despite Games 2 and 3 finishing in OT and the Canadiens winning Game 4 1-0.

The Bruins regained life and forced a Game 7. Fans were dejected as the Bruins outscored the Habs 10-5 and all seemed lost. However, Montreal would regain their magic from Game 1 and completely dominate the Bruins by a score of 5-0 to clinch the series.

Fans went wild. Too wild.
