Screw holding up at any point. Goals for count in the final standings, in case those two jackasses don't know that. Goal differential could make the difference in the final season's standings. You NEVER hold up, EVER.
If you suck badly enough to give up more than 6 goals, you deserve what you get. The Habs were 100% right to rev up their PP.
Also, who do you put on the ice? Habs' third PP unit is better than the leafs' first.
44 Hamrlik 26 Gorges To many giveaways for me to put him here.
22 Begin 14 Plekanec Should be in the good he made so many sick passes tonight.
27 Kovalev (I think he can do much better)
71 Brisebois 3 O'Byrne I thought he was good considering what I expect of him.
What's up with Andrei?? Not the start we all have been looking from him. He needs to score first to get going (like his brother)
I disagree. I saw a physical game from Andrei that drew penalties and threw the Leafs off of their game. Don't forget, every team in the NHL is aware of the potency of the Habs 1st line.... we now have 2 other solid offensive lines to deal with the over defensive compensation on our 1st line.
Much, much better game from the Tanguay-Koivu-Lats line; the Lats goal was pure beauty. Tanguay also used his body on the play to help allow Koivu to get by, which was great to see. They took away my complaints of them from last game.
AKost's off to a slow start, but in the points column only; he's played very well in the past two games. There seems to be a little lack of coordination on the KPK line, but they're still playing well regardless; once they get everything together, they'll start putting the points up.
BTW, it didn't seem like they got a lot of PP time tonight. Anyone else notice that? Might be just me...
