The Habs Are Not Dead Yet

What. A. Rollercoaster.

Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final, Tampa has a 3-0 chokehold on the Montreal Canadiens but there is just one thing people forget about these underdogs. They never say die. It took the Habs some extra time to get this crucial win but they did it with their usual flare of dramatiques.

Habs got this game going early. Josh Anderson secured a Habs lead 15 minutes into the first with the help of Nick Suzuki and Cole Caufield. That was also the Habs’ first time leading in this Final.

Barclay Goodrow tied it up 17 minutes into the second. Then the Habs took back the lead with a goal from Alexander Romanov but Pat Maroon got the game tied again. Right at the tail end of the third, Shea Weber got a 4-minute penalty for high sticking and there was some dread filling my head. OT, in an elimination game, is already scary, now the Habs are going to be down a man. Sure their PK has been good but you can never take that chance.

But well, well, well would you look at that. The Habs kill that penalty and Josh Anderson swoops in to save the day again with the OT GWG coming 4 minutes into OT.

What an ending. The Habs live to fight another day and I am still 100% on their side. Game 5 is on Wednesday night and I will be cheering loudly for the Habs. They’ve been down 3-1 in a series before and they came back. This is the drama I wanted from this series and I will be living for it. Go Habs go.
