Since the beginning of the season, we've been outshot many many times against non playoffs teams, this is one of the bad sign that our guys aren't doing their job in the defensive zone.
The Leafs and Bruins are hard working teams, put a lot of pressure on our defense and look at the results, they outplayed the Habs with this style of play. Of course, there's plenty of time to correct the situation, I hope our guys will show some character and come back with the fast hard working play style of last year.
I only watched the 2nd period and within 5 minutes, the Bruins took 3 or 4 good shots from the high slot...I couldn't believe the guy standing there (high slot) had so much time to take his shot! It tells me that the gap between our Ds and Fs is way too big!!!
Also, Markov did not look great during that 2nd period...and since last year, I feel that Markov performance kind of dictates the whole team performance.
Right now, they are not willing to pay the price. And the fact that the PP is not that great this year allows the opponents to take some "liberties" on our players...even though we signed George Laraque, I always felt that the best PP in the league gets you more respect than any enforcer in the lineup...
