You mean that welt by his left eye? I'll bet that's where his face and visor met when he fell to the ice.

Pretty emotional moment there. Must be hard to see that happen to a brother.
I thought he was just doing that eye twitching thing he always does. Crying? I doubt it.

Saku was just telling him to relax and forget about it.

If Andrei misses one or two games, what about calling Pacioretty back from the AHL?

Exactly... he was doing it because these tics are harder to control when you're nervous.

First: The raclette I ate during the first 2 periods was awesome. The Kostisyn injury kinda spoiled it. I hope he's back soon....although I'm not confident.

I dont know if it's Carbo saying he would stay on the Koivu line but Lats was impressive.

Markov 5 game point streak.

The PP sucked.

It feels good having Laraque on the ice.

If Higgins is ready to go I don't see the point. He would be called up to likely sit in the stands.

I really hope Kosti is ok. That was a dirty/cheap shot he took.

They should suspend any players that hits another in the head like that.

Hockey is tough enough to play and not get injured without cheap shot artists head hunting.

Hope you recover soon Ak 46.

I have a bad feeling about the hit ... I think it will be a couple weeks before he comes back. My guess is concussion + separated shoulder by the way the trainer was holding him.

Higgins takes his spot, and that would be the only change I think.

no... he wouldp lay on the 2nd line with Kovalev and Plekanec... or on the third with Lang and SK.

It was blindside because Kost was admiring his pass. And it wasnt a stick mark it was cause by his face hitting the ice.

- Koivu , Tanguay and Lats : What can i say ? These guys are meshing well together and it shows on the ice.

- Latendresse : I don't know what the hell happened to him during the summer but he's a much better player this year. Not that it really surprise me though since i always thought he had potential and knew that we should be patient with him.

- BGL :

- Price : Easy night but still made some solid saves , especially in the first.

- Coyotes : They have a nice future but right now it doesn't really show to be honest. I'm not exactly sure that all of their prospects are NHL ready.

- Lapierre : He's pretty much the perfect 4th line forechecker. Many people criticized him but once again the key is to be patient with him. Sure he's never going to be an offensive dynamo but he's still quite effective and will only get better with time.

- AK46 : I pray that he's OK

- Plekanec : Yeah he's not the player we saw last year but i'm not worried as i'm pretty certain that he will wake up soon enough.

Lang : Clearly an improvement over Bonk and Smolinski and we saw it again tonight.

That's about everything i have on my mind for now

I Know people are upset by that hit but if it was Komisarek who gave it everyone would be saying that other player just had to focus on what was in front of him and not what was behind. He just go nailed by exposing him self.

Very complete game by the Habs tonight.

We came out flying and scored twice by playing our type of game. It was obvious going into the second period that the Coyotes couldn't keep up. I think Gretzky showed a lack of coaching ability by (I assume) telling his guys to start taking some shots at our guys to make them think twice about dangling and skating circles around them. I lost alot of respect for Gretz tonight.

Our team responded exactly how you are supposed to react when faced with this situation. Our tough guys stood up and let the Coyotes know that we wouldn't let them goon it up on us. We got through the BS thanks to the guys that Gainey brought in during the offseason (as well as Kostopoulos)

Two thumbs up to Laraque. Really made a big difference tonight. Did you guys notice the big smiles on Habs players faces on the bench after he pounded Fedoruk? And how much calmer the Coyotes were in the third period? That was NHL enforcing 101 tonite by BGL.

It really feels good to know that our team can finally stand up to any other team in the league and that it won't get bullied on the ice.

Me neither. I don't think it wasn't as bad as some people are making it sound, but I don't think it was totally clean either. You get your hands/forearm up like that near a players face when you hit 'em, there is room for doubt.

Whatever the details of the hit, here is to hoping Andrei enjoys a full recovery very soon and is able to get back to doing what he loves and what he is so good at

so it was blindside...

big whoop, he still got hit in the head, regardless of the fact he was looking away or if he was looking straight at him, he got hit in the head, and the other guy led with his arm

in the nhl, those hits are illegal, the refs have to do their job, or BGL will go headhunting

The hit on Kost was marginal.. looked like a simple 2 mins penalty to me given how high his hands/stick were.

Anyway the damage on this hit was done whe his head hit the ice. Not before.
