Didn't notice until I saw the highlights, but Chipchura deserves as much credit as Bouillon on the GWG.

The puck was coming back towards the point to a Panthers player and Chipchura lifted his stick, which allowed Bouillon to get the shot off.

Awesome play.

I was thinking the same thing. With the goalie pulled and the Habs on the PK, it wasn't looking too good for a bit.

Yes. In fact, it was early October just like this one. We completely dominated them that night, Vokoun was absolutely insane. We were leading 1-0 when Komo took a bad penalty with just over 2 minutes left and Horton tied it with just seconds left. We then dominate the OT, nothing goes in and we lose the SO. EVERYTHING was lining up for the EXACT same thing to happen tonight when Lapierre took that penalty but the ending was different.

Is this a joke? Latendresse's skating has improved so much this season.. not taking away the fact that Chipchura has improved, but Latendresse is FAST this year.

- Tanguay and Koivu keep on having a nice chemestry.
- Latendresse had a tougher game though.
- The D had good stints, but bad moments as well.
- Hamrlik has been a stud... as always.
- Markov is elite... seriously... he's unreal.
- Komo's coming along slowly but surely.
- Kovalev had a better 2nd and 3rd period, but still has to give more IMO.
- Plekanec is not confident, but is not playing THIS bad...
- Sergei had a tough, tough, tough game.
- Chipchura is playing great, I wonder if we should keep him on the wing. The more it goes, the more I see him playing on the wing in his career if he plays in Montreal.
- Lang is the Hamrlik version of the Habs' offense. Steady, clever, and efficient.
- Kostopoulos : DON'T FALL ON THE BLUELINE!
- Lapierre : Becoming greater and greater.
- Dandenault : ... Not bad, not great, just Dandy.
- Bouillon : Good... he'll be all right.
- Halak : Wow!

All in all, great game, considering we were missing two guys who scored 27 and 26 last year...

Two top 6 wingers, goon deluxe and #1 goalie not playing = B team. Not my fault our B team is still capable of winning.

the team needs to realize there won't be any easy games this year. they seem to play their B game against bad teams or when they get the lead thinking it's going to be an easy one..

Didn't we have a 0-0 tie go to a shootout last year, or was that two years ago?

These defensive struggles do nothing for me. Slow 1-0 and 2-1 games put me to sleep. Except for our PP's, we had nothing going offensively, and it's always like that against Florida. Boring!

His first period was atrocious, yup.

But the Panthers woke him up in the second and he worked very hard until the end. That's what Dany Dubé said aswell.

Although he scored no goals tonight, I am constantly impressed that Lang, as a 2B centre, is able to generate shots and chances. 7 shots tonight. That line is gonna wear out defenses for the other two top lines all year.

BTW, what WAS Lang's line tonight? I read one thing in the GDT, and heard other things during the game.

The whole defense was healthy, top line was healthy, and the ''B'' goalie is as good as a no1.

I thought Chip actually tied to play the puck but missed it.

Disgusting Commercial on RDS

How can they show that commercial when little kids are watching??

The one with the workplace accident and they show you half a head. It should not be playing during the hockey game....or ever

Mhmm.

He has improved as a hockey player, hands still arn't great. But I have no idea how people think he is a better skater. He can't keep up with Koviu who I don't think to many people would consider fast. His turning radius is now closer to a Hummer instead of a Greyhound.

Now there's a twist I didn't see coming.

And who was right about Lapierre ladies and gents? Blades was right about Lapierre.

Hopefully Dandy gets shipped to moon soon. Chipchura proved he's superior, be it on the wing, center, goalie, water boy, whatever.

I know we have a couple injuries but this is hardly a B team

panthers worked hard and deserve credit
