2. Nevermind that we have Gorges that can take care of himself, nevermind that Cube does too and he hits, nevermind that we have Emelin that can hit, in defensive mode they become kittens. That's why we have had trouble on the PK. Guys go in front of the net and we go into panic mode and they do what they want. On the opposite side, I don't even know half the Sens D, yet last night we had players trying to get close to their goalie and their D would take their heads off.

3. We see the real face of DD in games like this, watch how in the NHL you're supposed to lock up a player of this stature, Sens were pushing him pretty quickly, taking him out of the game. That's what happens when he doesn't have two big strong dudes doing all the work.

All in all we finally faced real opposition. And we crumbled. But this Habs team is a work in progress since most of it is new. But if we want to go further, we need a whole different D core.
Whole different D core?
Markov-Emelin
Gorges-Subban

Is more than a good start. Once Tinordi and Ellis break out of Hamilton we will be loving it.
