Luckily for Moncton we didn't have to shut down Mac in the third which could have change the game. Halifax's d made tons of mistake that you shouldnt see on a contending team , let alone #2 National ranked team. Keeping MacAuley over Gillard still puzzles me from an outsider looking in. Veilleux played well and gave it his all . Racine and Narbonne as well. Melindy looked horrid as usual. Most of the teams errors were cause by him. It's almost like being shorthanded when he's on the ice. Looks sooo lost out there, clueless of where or what he should be doing. Fabian was getting considerably frustrated last night with him. Would have liked to see more of Johnston. I think fast teams like Hali really expose him cause he's slow. Would also love to see him use his body and punish people more , he seems to ease up before most hits. Overall it was a good game. Not the pretiest but enough to get the job done. It would make an intresting playoff series. Lalonde was proved to be a nice addition that can do more than grind. Flynn looking smart for passing on star players for him , who will have another couple of years in this league.
Having a top 6 that matches well against anybody in the league at this point is impressive, but what I think gives Moncton a real shot is depth with guys like Lalonde, Penny and Johnston. For all the off-the-wall predictions people were making about the point totals for 3rd and 4th liners at the start of the season (ok, Bathurst), those 3 should end up with about 60 goals.
