That said, I'm making a huge prediction that he becomes a playoff hero for us, and shows the young guys another level of play, and heart. I don't know why, could be the drinks I had when I went out after the loss last night, but I have a really, really good feeling he will be clutch come playoffs.

Brian Gionta---you have a free pass from me, and I will let everything slide until the playoffs. You are the captain of this team for a reason, and I'm willing to bet you show it when it matters.

The playoffs are almost here, when players like Gionta flourish and shine.

go habs go!!!
Gionta goes to the dirty areas as much as anybody on the team. He scores most of his goals from 10-20 feet out and is fearless to go in the coners with bigger/stronger players. Not sure what player you've been watching
