No, getting scored of first doesn't mean much if you are a good offensive team, which the Habs, for the most part are not. You will always find games where we scored first and lost or got scored on and won. Look at our record when each situation happens and you will see that it's to our advantage to score first and a lot of that comes down to having a good start to the game.

I'm just saying, you can't expect us to always be able to come back from a bad first period. It's not a sustainable performance in the long term.

But I agree with you, we need to shore up our D quick. It's crucial, especially on nights when our goalies are not at 100%.
