Canadiens/Lightning Final Starts Tonight/Notes

June 28, 2021

Tonight is game 1 of the 2021 Cup final between the Montreal Canadiens and the nearly 3 to 1 favorite, defending champion, Tampa Bay Lightning.

After tonight’s game 1 tilt, there will be a note by most of the media that a high percentage of game 1 final round winners went on to win the crown.

Will they (hey Kenny Albert, given so much, will you at least give us some notes?! I will not know as I will not listen to him. It should have been Forslund, although that would have just been a lesser of two bads, there are many worse than either and I could never bdcst hockey, so it is not that painful, unlike typing from a distance, as I am doing now. Forslund said the Habs/Canadiens were 500 to 1 underdogs to title. He, in very sloppy fashion “added a zero,” pretty much indicating he has “no clue” regarding such) note that Tampa Bay, going in is (0-3) in final round openers, but they won 2 of the 3 previous final round entities. They won after a game 1, at Tampa Bay loss in ’04, but lost after such an occurrence in ’15. Last year they “titled,” despite losing the final round opener in the Edmonton bubble.

Will they note that the Canadiens have lost 4 straight Cup final openers, going into to tonight, however, rallying to win 3, each with 4 straight victories (’79,’86 and ’93)?!
