Tough loss but they only played well during stretches of the game.
The top line looks good for the most part. No real worries although it be nice for Cammalleri to get the monkey off the back and notch one.
The third line looked much better. Lapierre and Lats were actually controlling the boards.
Plekanec is on an island by himself. Pacioretty doesn't seem to gel with them at all and is a bit lost.
Akosts is literally Kovy junior. Skates to nowhere. One play in the second pissed me off as he has speed going wide and instead of cutting to the net, he takes the easy way out floating around the net. He needs to man up and go to the danger areas and stop playing like a pansy. I have had enough of these types of players.
Chipchura i liked too bad he had Stewy with him.
Defense was okay. Had its troubles at times but that is expected with this cast.
Halak. Average to below average. Not a single big stop, played too far back in his net and seemed to be guessing instead of fighting to see the puck. Montreal doesn't have the offense to have a goalie to be merely average.
