Awesome game... Somewhat boring to watch, but it was great seeing the fans give their old team a great salute out there.

Is it just me, or did the Habs play a form of the trap in the 3rd period? Throughout the period, they had one forechecker in, 2 guys behind him and 2 D standing on our blueline. Zednik did a good job w/ the forechecking, and the Leafs couldn't get past the next two levels of defenders without losing the puck. The Habs essentially shut their offense down for the night, unless they got a chance (Audi/Ryder).

Ribeiro looked great tonight, Ryder was a force and Zednik had a lot of chances. I didn't really notice Higgins much tonight though.

And yes, Theodore was very sharp. He was never out of position, and always back up on his feet fast. He had good focus throughout.

HOpefully they can keep this type of effort up, against the Caps.
