One thing we do know is that one of the Sens prospects will win the Memorial Cup.

Lazar for the Oil Kings
Harpur for Guelph.

Pulling for Lazar. It's a huge task to take on Guelph. They have been dominate throughout the tournament. But anything can happen.

Eleven periods of hockey in two days. That's a lot. The Storm have been sitting around waiting. One game, who knows.

Good game.. Quick is unreal.

But I do wish those Kings fans would stop constantly banging on the glass. It is so freakin' annoying. Don't they know how to clap? or fist pump or something else.. How about drinking with two hands so they don't have one free to bang the glass.

Stepan is their #1 center by most stats (most face offs taken by a wide margin, tied for second in scoring, second in icetime among forwards).

Prust, not so much.

Both Gallagher and Briere have expressed their doubt (?) as to the severity of the injury. Hard to disagree with them -- the guy got up and was yapping at Prust, making motions like he wanted to have a go at him. Missed a couple of shifts and then finished the rest of the game. How does the, then, need a plate inserted to stabilize a broken jaw the next day?

Then Therrien told the media (before it became officially known via the Rangers) that Brassard would be playing and that they knew what his injury was. A bit similar to how Vigneault knew that Tokarski would be starting G2.

Gamesmanship, or is this series about to turn nasty?

Therrien's quote for those who missed it (translated):

"We expect Brassard to play & know exactly where he's injured. Hockey's a small world."

Brooksie is all up in arms:
http://nypost.com/2014/05/24/therrien-threat-demands-review/

The NHL, which came up small in its response to Brandon Prust’s jaw-breaking late hit on Derek Stepan in Game 3 with a sentence that would allow No. 8 to return to this series if the Canadiens can win one of the next two games, now must investigate Montreal again, and specifically coach Michel Therrien.

It is up to the league — and this would fall under the province of the commissioner — to determine whether Therrien essentially placed a bounty on Derick Brassard, the Rangers’ center who will return for Sunday’s Game 4 after missing all but the first 3:05 of the series, sidelined thereafter with an upper-body injury he sustained on a blind-side hit from defenseman Mike Weaver.

Don't forget, 4PM start for the Memorial Cup Final game before the Habs@Rangers game four.

He may have had a sore jaw and his anger over the hit probably caused him to get up and try to go after Prust.

The guy had surgery and had a metal plate put in his jaw to stabilize it. I don't know how Gallagher & Briere can say the injury isn't severe. The more those Habs open their mouth.. the more stupid they seem and are. I so hate them worse than the Leafs..

I think the game tonight could get out of hand IF the refs let it get that way. You don't come out publicly more or less saying your team is going to target the injury on another player. What they say behind doors is one thing, but to come out like that just plain stupid.

I guess their theory is injure the Rangers best players and we have a chance to win. He should realize - it works both ways.

It's already worked the other way, or are you forgetting that the Hab's best player is out of the series?

Thrown it's not saying anything we don't already know about hockey--every team will use any advantage, including targeting injuries. It didn't start with Clarke on Kharlamov.

I think what Therrien is doing here is planting a seed of doubt in Brassard's mind. Maybe it he thinks they know what asils him he won't be as eager to go into the dangerous places.
