Either way though... the forward support in the defensive zone has been the Habs biggest problem so far this season.
Like I said, I think it goes back to the linechange.
I don't remember if Gionta/Gomez got back in the zone between Leopold and the goal (if they did I'm completely wrong) I thought that it was taking a fairly long time for the last two Habs forwards to get back and n one of the replays TSN showed you can see Kostitsyn and Desharnais coasting to the bench while Buffalo broke up the ice.
One of those little things that doesn't always cost you. With the exception of that and the icing by Gorges I'm very happy with the game tonight.
Edit: Let me add to the Eller kudos. He's great with the puck and pretty good without it as well. Very nice game for him.
