Habs were not themselves tonight. The number of odd man rushes given up tonight was highly irregular. They got out of the snowstorm in NYC last but I think they forgot to bring their heads with them. Its time to re-energize and get ready for a big game against the rangers.

As for the "gesture", I didnt even think about it until it was brought up tonight and I'm baffled by how much was made out of it. Anyways, it seems to have fueled the pens a little bit, so no matter what the intentions were from Price, it helped the opposition and should not be done again. It seems like the nhl community is more sensitive over these types of little things than any other professional sport.

Remember, this was the pens first win against montreal since the playoffs, and their first win in 5 games against the habs in total. Combine that with the choke job against boston and montreal playing last night, it seemed like a perfect storm for a loss.
