We had a two goal lead and let it slip away just like that. It shouldn't have gotten to a shootout. I felt Montreal spent way too much time in their own zone at times letting Buffalo shoot at will. Overall I was impressed by our Habs speed and the way they played against IMO the favourites to win it all this year in the Buffalo Sabres. Bonk made too many giveaways. The loss tarnished a spectacular night by Koivu, Ryder, and Higgins line. I agree with all of you who say that the Kovy-Plek-Sammy line was very good with tons of opportunites, but couldn't buy one, particularly the Kovalev play all alone, but couldnt deke Miller. Huet was amazing in net. He is definitely our number one. As I said, the only drawback was our defensive zone coverage or lack there of. Let's get better at that as the year progresses. We should beat Toronto tomorrow. This game was a good measuring stick to see where we stand and I think we'll be fine if we skate like that on most nights.
