Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Red Fisher of the Montreal Gazette,
In a perfect world, the applause would have started with a little more than two minutes left in Game 5, which most people expected would be the end of the quarterfinal playoff series between these teams.
Everyone on their feet. White towels waving wildly. More than 21,000 mouths open, the noise getting louder and louder, and soon there would no longer have been a crowd in the Bell Centre, but a thunder engulfing it.
How sweet it would have been. No more than five games - and why not, eh? The Canadiens had finished 10 points ahead of the Bruins during the regular season. They had erased them 4-1 in the first game of this series and won the second game in overtime. Five games. No more.
Boston 5, Canadiens 1.
