That was a technique that Serge Savard mastered after his skating was compromised by severe leg injuries. Other than PK Subban, none of the other Hab Dmen who'll play tonight (Gorges, Gill, Diaz, Campoli, Spacek) is a hard hitter.
Diaz hasn't impressed me too much either. But I wouldn't put too much weight into who's in the lineup (or what rds says for that matter). Even though it's the last game, it's still preseason.
It could also mean it's last chance for Diaz to make the team.
