There's been 3 games where the habs stormed out of the gate and got nothing or very little out of it. These games were against toronto, buffalo, and colorado.

For all the flaws and mistakes that the habs have had this year, if they make some of those early storms count, this is at least a 500 hockey club at this point.

Its not just a fast start that counts, its time to get a couple goals out of it too, so this team can go back to playing with the lead. We've seen over the past couple years that this team is like night and day when playing with the lead as opposed to playing from behind.

Just watching those games against the leafs, avs, and sabres you just knew it was going to bite them after they couldnt manage anything for their fast starts. It gets tough to watch the instant something goes wrong.
