[SBN Habs Blog - Habs Eyes on the Prize]

It's far from over friends, but it's pretty damn close.

One more win and the Pens are off to the Conference Finals for the third year in a row.  One more win and they are one more series win away from a repeat effort in the Stanley Cup Finals.  But before we get too ahead of ourselves, let's remember who we're going up against.  Jaroslav Halak, in my opinion at least, has not had "that" game yet.  You know, like MAF had in Game 3.  This is only part of the reason why you can't rule out this Habs team.

The other is of course the Bell Centre atmosphere.  I've said it once and I'll say it again - that place just strikes me as the last place you want to play a road playoff game.  I can't imagine how fired up Montreal gets skating into that arena on a regular basis before the postseason, but once the playoffs hit it must be ridiculous.  When I was up there for the 2009 Draft last summer the place was pretty crazy even for something as mundane as a bunch of names being announced over a loud speaker.  Since then, watching a Habs game in Montreal made it onto my bucket list.

But let's not forget that the Pens split the last series in Montreal.  They can win on Bell Centre ice and they're going to give it their best tonight. 

Sit back and enjoy the show.
