The Canadiens pulled off an improbable upset. They were the last placed team that qualified for the playoffs. Yet the #8 Habs held off the #1 Caps and circumvented their own elimination not once, not twice, but 3 games in a row. That's impressive. But it's not the whole story...
The Canadiens won the series in large part because the Capitals failed. Miserably. All of them are guilty of playing without heart, none more so than their captain. There were two factors: 1. The Caps felt they had this one locked, and 2. they did not put forth the effort that is typical of a team united in a mission for glory. And so the Canadiens caught them with their pants down and ended their season.
But the Habs will find that the Penguins are a much different team than the Capitals.
Our #4 Penguins are the defending Stanley Cup champions. As such, the Boys already know what it takes to make it through all the way to a victorious end. And we know they are more than capable of doing it.
