Il Lance, Il Compte...C'est de la Magie!

If you haven't been over to the very best french hockey blog on the entire planet, I suggest you visit.  Olivier Bouchard has been recording the Habs scoring chances since way back in October when they were just as bad as the Leafs.  Here's how he scored the playoff series so far - game 7 will be posted soon:

Team Game SCF SCA GF GA
WSH 1 19 35 3 2
WSH 2 16 23 5 6
WSH 3 17 24 1 5
WSH 4 21 22 3 6
WSH 5 17 21 2 1
WSH 6 20 36 4 1
WSH 7 16 28 2 1
PIT 1 14 16 3 6
PIT 2 7 22 3 1
PIT 3 10 19 0 2
PIT 4 11 25 3 2
PIT 5 18 22 1 2
PIT 6 16 19 4 3
PIT 7 ? ? 5 2
TOTALS 202 312 39 40
Score% 16.8 12.2

 

Drink that in: Montreal hasn't led its opponent in scoring chances in *any* individual game.  Halak really saved their asses in round 1, and when his performance declined in round 2, Habs shooters found the 'en fuego' button.  Either one of those features could continue, but that's not what I like to build my house of cards with.
