"Scoring chances are generated through zone time, and goals come from scoring chances." The Habs are a top-10 possession team and, more often than not, they out-chance their opposition. They, as a team, get into the dirty areas - the Home Plate.

Anyone watching this team knows this isn't true. Shots from in close... sure. But we don't put guys in front the net and screen. Gallagher does this, that's it. He's the only guy who plays a consistent 'dirty game' and again... he's small.
