    Possible future headline?:

    Someone should tell Donovan that T.O. is no longer in his prime (and he’s still and asshole).

    How much credit does Boudreau deserve for the move in goal and for putting Gordon in the line up? I think last night might have put the series out of reach for Montreal. Great coaching move.

    French Canadians are the most miserable people on the face of the earth, they arent booing our anthem, theyre booing themselves.

    Not to be boo’d…the ad on the boards of the Bell Centr(place your own e) that grows a beard during the course of the game. Pretty clever.

    The pathetic thing is that the Canadiens have just as many American players (Gil, Gomez, Gionta) as we do (Corvo, Poti, Carlson). They’re disrespecting their own players when they boo the American anthem. Fucking disgraceful.

    It’s really pretty silly to play anthems before so many frickin’ sporting events. Seriously, save them for the Olympics, World Cup, Super Bowl, World Series, etc. Playing them before every single game just gives people more of a chance to disrespect and devalue them. Play some Dokken, Queensryche or other suitable mullet music and drop the puck.

    I don’t understand why they played the US National Anthem in the first place. I have never been to a game in the US where Oh Canada was played. Being of French-Canadian descent not all French-Canadians suck; however, all the fans that booed the US National Anthem can go screw themselves.

    Even thinking about TO coming to Washington makes me sick to my stomach.

    At any sporting event where the teams are from different countries, they play both national anthems.

    Ah thanks Chris. Now thinking about I’ve never been to a sporting event with 2 different countries playing.

    They boo’ed Ovy, not the U.S. or the national anthem. Ovechekin is an ashole for what he does and I really believe that someone like Scott Stevens will take care of him someday. He has no class and will never be a star like gretzky, lemieux or Crosby.
    You suck Ovy go back to Russia asshole!
