Podcast: The Montreal Miracle, Canadiens two wins from reaching Stanley Cup Final


In the latest podcast on DFlex’s Pushing Buttons, I review the improbable win by the Canadiens last night over the stunned Golden Knights. The Habs came back to win Game Three 3-2 in overtime on ultimate hero Josh Anderson’s winner. His tying goal with 1:55 left in regulation was a gift from Marc-Andre Fleury.

Montreal leads the series two games to one. Can they continue this amazing run behind the red hot Carey Price? He made 43 saves yesterday and gave his severely outplayed team a chance to steal the game in front of 3,500 screaming fans at Bell Centre. Price is having a Patrick Roy postseason. How will Vegas respond?

Plus observations on the awful Vegas power play, Mark Stone and Peter DeBoer’s response to the rare Fleury gaffe. The Montreal penalty kill. And the kid. Cole Caufield. Where can Game 4 of the Lightning and Islanders be found? It took me a while. Can the Islanders again rise up or might this be the last game at Nassau Coliseum? We’ll see.
