Let the season begin! (Habs finish preseason 4-2-1)
 
Price = solid
Great 2nd and 3rd

3-2 win.

Metropolitsky 09-26-2009 09:33 PM

Go HABS

JGRB 09-26-2009 09:34 PM

OT: Leafs fans want the cup.

LOL! hahaha i'm still laughing

Good win for us though.

MathMan 09-26-2009 09:34 PM

So we were really hard on Price early, but in the end, 2 goals on 31 shots with lots of PPs, that's .935 save% and a very good night's work. Turns out he's ready.

Good to see him recover from a bad start, too.

bhuya71 09-26-2009 09:35 PM

trade price
get akost getzlaf...oh wait
why did gainey get so many vets when ob is ready and
gionta is small and overpaid...
gainey's best acquisition which is allowing this team to look like a team JMFM

bhuya71 09-26-2009 09:36 PM

btw sarcasm on everything prior to the Jacques mutha****ing Martin comment...

Marc the Habs Fan 09-26-2009 09:36 PM

Good stuff, only preseason obviously but to beat Buffalo's near A team while still missing Markov and Cammalleri is an encouraging sign.

To do it coming back is cool too, especially since Miller seemed on fire early on.

Price with a very re-assuring 2nd and 3rd periods.

The team seemed to do an excellent job protecting the lead in the 3rd the way the CKAC crew was talking about it.

Canadienjet 09-26-2009 09:37 PM

Like I said in the other thread Gionta for Captain.Sucks Pyatt got hurt.Hopefully he will be okay.

la25ecoupe 09-26-2009 09:38 PM

So what were the shots number?

RE-HABS 09-26-2009 09:38 PM

Team looks solid from the goalies, the D and the 4th, 3rd and 1st lines....2nd line will be a area of concern and I wonder if Gainey will try to address it sooner rather than later?

la25ecoupe 09-26-2009 09:39 PM

btw, did Pyatt leave the ice on his feet or on those cibiere?

Habsfan18 09-26-2009 09:39 PM

Nice comeback. Price was solid in the 2nd and 3rd. GIONTA!!!! :handclap:

Sucks for Pyatt. :(

MathMan 09-26-2009 09:42 PM

Big negative: Was a bad game five-on-five. Despite the 2-2 goal differential, the Habs got murdered at 5-on-5 and it showed on the shot clock: 22-9. This was the Habs' weakness last season (and since, well, forever) and it needs to improve if they want to be any good.

But this is an area where they did well in previous games so I'm not TOO worried.

Gary320 09-26-2009 09:42 PM

Just hearing Gionta doing interviews.. I mean, he is so at EASE with it.. I dont remeber how Koivu handled the media in the start... but in the nearing end.. he started to seem really nervous and scared almost..

Redux91 09-26-2009 09:42 PM

watching that gionta interview, im pretty convinced hell be the next captain

that, i just dont know

Metropolit who really has nothing to worry about for saying the truth... says that there is alot more chatter in the locker room compared to last year.

shutehinside 09-26-2009 09:45 PM

I'm soo happy to Price come back and stone the Sabres after a shakey 1st period. The team really fed off that and attacked more freely after he made some big stops.
On a side note, I'm surprised he didn't get a star and Miller did. He made more saves, won and the game was in Montreal?? Who's picking these stars!?

Gary320 09-26-2009 09:46 PM

I think we mgiht be surprised with Metro this year.. He knows the game really well

Same. Its like he already has the C.




Wish Price looked like he cared in interviews. He often has some nice quotes, but hes so boring when he says it.

MathMan 09-26-2009 09:46 PM

Interesting comment by Metropolit:

"Coach gives everyone a role and that makes it easy."

Part of the answer on a question about how the team seemed to have a better vibe. Interesting.

Redux91 09-26-2009 09:46 PM

LOL metro!

"what was more surprising for you on stewarts goal, the fact that gomez could get it to him or stewart being able to get a shot off?"

"well the surprising thing was seeing gomez out there on my line actually!"

everyone got a good laugh lol

Whitesnake 09-26-2009 09:46 PM

Gionta seems to fit with everybody. Cammy....I'm not so sure. Which is the reason why I would have Gionta with Plekanec, and Cammy with Gomez.

Miller stopped multiple breakaways, a 2-on-0, and some 2-on-1s. There were fewer shots but they were very high quality.

Thank god! Hopefully this team can learn to have fun and play hockey all at the same time!
