I know that some people like criticizing Carbonneau but I truly think that he's a very good coach who knows what it's like to be a player and what they need in order to succeed.
I know that decision (bowling) was criticized, not to say lauged at. But I liked it also. Not because it was bowling but because it was something to break the routine and get the guys talking in a loose atmosphere. Hopefully it pays off on the ice.

I think the Habs come out flying tonight personally. If they don't. I have serious doubts about the playoffs.
