I agree completely that determination is the key, but our PP saved our butt a lot last year, and we didn't have the same depth either. We also lost to the flyers because our PP couldn't click. So if we want to win big, we've got to find ways to play better at ES. And perimeter play against tight, defence first teams like Boston/NJ/Florida, etc, is useless and we've been witnessing it this season.
Really? Tonight's game Florida scored 2 PP goals to take the 2-0 lead. If you're going to take our PP goals away then you have to take Florida's away as well. You could say Florida is leading this game because of their PP and that it's saving their butts. Why the double standard? I don't get it.
BTW We badly outplayed the Flyers that series and lost because of inexperienced, poor goaltending on our end and superior goaltending by Biron. Ask any Hab player about that Flyer's series and they'll tell you the same. We scored 4 goals in game 5 and still lost.
Habs are battling tonight, especially in the second period, but Vokoun is on his game. Scoring chances favoured the Habs.
In addition to all of this anyone will tell you that special teams are a key to any good team's success. Montreal is still proving they can win despite having a not-so-good PP this year. Tonight they're losing the special teams battle and thuis losing the game. That's hockey.
