Here we are, the Habs a win away from the Stanley Cup Finals after limping into the playoffs. Carey Price has turned the clock back five years, and Vegas has forgotten how to play hockey. I don't buy anyone saying Montreal is stifling their offence. Their defencemen are making unforced errors at the offensive blue line. Their passes aren't working. Even Mark "Mark Stone Again" Stone made a giveaway that led directly to a goal against. Vegas are throwing their shot against a team they should easily be dominating, and I'd probably find it funny if it wasn't against the Habs.
After an 8-0 drubbing last game, the Isles will start this one of two ways: either they will come in firing on all cylinders, or they will come in believing they've already lost the series. Either way, the first 5 minutes will give us a good idea of if it will be over tonight or if there will be a Game 7.
