Leafs/Habs Notes And NHL Update

May 28, 2021

Last night, the Montreal Canadiens won in overtime, to force a 6th game Saturday night in Montreal, vs the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Leafs still lead the series 3 games to 2 and while roughly one eighth capacity (until this, no fans) will not come close to what could have been, it is a “Saturday night, at Montreal,” Leafs/Habs ‘offs game.

In the 13 previous Leafs/Canadiens best of 7 playoff series, the game 2 winner has won 12 of those series. Montreal won the series opener for the 11th time in 14 best of 7 series vs Toronto.

Elsewhere, NBC has deemed game1 of the Bruins/Islanders “quarter,” its Saturday night tilt, with Leafs/Habs starting a mere half hour earlier on NBCSN.

The Bruins are over 2 to 1 series favorites vs the Islanders. New York (Islanders) “quarter’d” the Bruins in ’80 and “semi’d” them in ’83, en route to titles.

Sebastian Aho scored early in overtime last night, lifting Carolina, nee Hartford, (4-3) in #6 and (4-2) in the series. Now Carolina, with home advantage and their pretty full, loud arena, will be series underdogs, vs the defending champion Tampa Bay Lightning in their “quarter.”

Top ranked, Colorado will start its “quarter” Sunday night at home and on NBC, vs tonight’s (Mitch Moss said “tonight” as I typed, I am a little worried regarding Paul Howard’s 2 day absence on Follow The Money on ViSN) Las Vegas home 7th vs Minnesota, winner.

Winnipeg awaits the Leafs/Habs winner. A 7th in that series would be Monday night in Toronto. Monday night 7th regarding Toronto, recalls the Bruins amazing comeback win some years back.
