Habs vs Bruins Game Preview
Both teams will be looking to set the tone of this game within the first 5-10 minutes or so. The Habs will have to utilize their speed and skill to counter attack the power forward type play that the Bruins bring. Also to be successful against not only the Bruins, but all NHL teams come playoff time the Habs will have to work hard in the corners and win those one on one battles throughout the full 60 minute effort. Which also includes not taking stupid penalties like hooking or holding.
For P.K Subban he will have to continue his great play. Play on the edge, creative, right plays, but don’t play over the edge, try not to do too much just enough.
Mike Cammalleri will have to put words into action saying: “I don’t feel like there’s a hump or anything like it that we have to get over,” Mike Cammalleri said. “We’ve had a lot of success against these guys. I think more is being made of that on the outside than in here.”
As for Gomez, well you never know maybe he will play great or he will play that kind of game were many say “trade him!”. Scott Gomez has to bring his A game tonight, to set the bar for himself.
