PK smashing his stick, running to the bench and back in time to receive a pass in extremis (shows you the quality of his effort), passes to Markov, clear his spot from the broken stick parts, and then perform a slapshot.

We need a gif of that sequence. Man PK has superswag.

Was very nice
That was pure awesome! It was even better the way the camera was fixed, with him coming in from off screen. I'm sure all of us were like "OMG NO, broken stick we're screwed, get another one!", then he pulls it off. Has to be on highlight reels on with a stupid tagline. BTW, great play by Patch there to hold on to it and make the play until Subban had time.

It was always gally or patch retrieving the puck, and then DD passing it to a winnepeg player to kill all momentum of the forecheck. He still made terrible passes on the PP, and seemed ineffective overall besides the 5 on 3.

He did win faceoffs, but not many of them turned into offensive opportunities. I'm glad he scored and hoping he steps his game up because I'm really rooting for him and I was trying to detract the haters at the beginning of the season, but he hasn't made me look very good this year.
I'm not at all mad that he scored, I'm very happy in hopes that it will get him back to his old game. He looked very good after the goal, even...backcheckin. But what DD (haha) said, prior to that he was his usual ineffective self.

Pfft. Eller is the one who brings the puck up ice, battles really hard cuz he has the frame and sets up a ton of plays. Sometimes the secondary assist is a harder play than the primary just FYI and it goes both ways in terms of Chucky's production. Eller is awesome.

Good luck to you guys, I feel we both our teams have the top two fan bases in the league.
I'm just glad that it wasn't us who eliminated you (you were beating us at the time you got eliminated). Great fans and I really hope to see playoffs from you guys.

Maybe we could rest a couple of players too. Especially Markov and Prust.
Ya, we're not Anaheim and they a) haven't had to fix stuff (we still do) and b) don't have to play their bÍte noire (Toronto). I do realize some guys need a rest, so I would not mind Dumont in for Prust actually, but sadly we can't win this without Markov. I really wouldn't trust Beaulieu to deliver in this game. In for Cube, fine. In for Markov, nah, we need him. Markov looked a little more energetic than last game. I don't know what his recharge meter looks like so does 2 days vs 5 days make a world of a difference? Maybe, probably, but I don't see us winning without him and I still wan't 2nd badly.

Kudos for not telling me about my stupidity after that one... ouch.

HEY SHUT UP! They're a different breed I tell ya...
Haha, having moved to Ontario since awhile now, I've met a lot of Habs fans native to the area and they're awesome. Though that's why my sig is written as it is, just for clarification that I'm a gars de chez nous. (Though, again, Ontario Habs fans and I'm sure from elsewhere are terrific!). I think all of us living in Ontario are far more concerned with the Toronto situation than people in MTL. I go home often and most of my friends don't have the same intensity of hatred because they don't have many friends who are leaf fans, haven't been exposed to the circus of leafs fandom, haven't had to spar on a daily basis with them. I can't tell you how many official functions I've been to where in a very important, completely non-hockey-related speech, someone will say "**** the Habs". Then again, whenever I get a chance to speak in a similar situation (given everyone knows my colours), I make sure to return the favour.

Much appreciated! Glad that everyone seems to have picked up the same elements from last night. The DD "bashing"/misinterpreting I expect will last a little while longer until we devolve into Price discussions and how it was "only ONE game!". Patofqc seems to have come out of the woodwork, which normally happens when Price wins a game for us. He's our groundhog. That's how you KNOW Price won a game for us
