Usually the best players on a team have more icetime in games they lose than they win. The logic is that the coach play them more so they can help the team comeback and possibly win. On the Habs however the top 3 scorers (Subban, Eller, Galchenyuk) have lower icetime average in games they lose than win. Even the supposed 'clutch' acquisition Briere gets much less icetime while the team is losing. These aren't the guys on average get their icetime increased to get the team back into the game by the coach. Guys like Gallagher, Plekanec, Pacioretty, Markov are obvious choices to increase icetime in times of needing offense.

Players that do get an icetime boost while they're losing?
Boullion (
Gionta (
Desharnais (

Habs just coincidentally have been horrible when giving up first goal:
