Weird game... the Habs had not played for a few days and it showed, mostly on D. Halak could have been better, but he had not played for 2 weeks (anyway, he should have stopped Methot's goal). At the end of the game, he made a few important saves; without those saves, Habs would have had their 2nd lost in regulation.
On most nights, Kovalev is the most entertaining hockey player. It might not always provoke goals, but it sure is entertaining... He moves like a great white shark.
Lang should shoot more often; in the last 2 games, he seems to be looking for the perfect pass when, sometimes, he has a clear shot at the net; maybe he's trying to get SKost out of his funk...
To their advantage, the Blue Jackets played a very defensive game; they were very disciplined. The first 5 minutes of the game set the tone; Habs were buzzing in the BJackets zone, but didn't draw penalties. Mason was very good, Tyutin was the best D of the game.
Can't wait to see the Canadiens play at a regular pace of games (they play 16 games in the next month, I think ?); we're very lucky fans !
PS: I don't understand Peca's value VS his reputation/$$$. He was good with the Sabres, but since then, meh.
