I love having Begin on the team, always have since Gainey poached him from the Sabres. I will admit that he's not as useful as he used to be and I don't see Gainey signing him to an extension, but to go so far as to say that he's useless? That's a bit much. He does need to start shooting more often though.

Awesome work by the PK units. Nonstopulous is proving himself to be a good pick up, his tenure in Montreal started slow but has noticably picked up since about a month before last years playoffs and he's being going since.

I remember when Begin went on a scoring streak a couple years ago. He was being compared to actual gifted players.

I think the Habs moved up from 14th to 9th position (PK's rating)

The PK really was amazing against Minny. It was like we had a small army of Carbos out there. So patient, so focused. If that's any indication of what the PK's going to be like over the course of the year, then it will more than make up for falling out of the top spot on the PP.

Not that we don't want a killer PP too. But the penalty killing last night was just plain WOW.

After all, he killed off every second of every penalty by eating hot dogs and then farting in the general direction of the Minnesota bench. Not only did the smell waft all the way down and disturb the Wild players, but it distracted a large section of fans on the way which reduced their enthusiasm and support, thus making the Habs on-ice players' job easier.
I'm sorry if i didn't look up the PK icetime of every player on the team..... I went with guys i've seen killing penalties at some point this season... Regardless the whole team did great on the PK tonight.

11 shots in the 2nd period.
Having to kill four 5 on 3's and still only allowing 11 shots is phenominal.

Wow - I was going to create a Boullion Appreciation Thread - then figured he'd just be in here - then saw he's not even mentioned in the OP !

Francis Boullion IS our #4 -- easily better than Gorges, O'Byrne, Brisebois etc.

He made a TERRIFIC just-in-time stick-lift play on Benoit Pouliot at the very last microsecond to save an easy goal plus scored one of his own, and he gets no thread. For shame!

Whatcha gonna do, Minnesota, when BOULLIONMANIA runs WILD on YOU, BROTHER !!!

I added Bouillion to the OP.

However he is our #5 d-man; not our number 4.

Time on the ice would tell you that Gorges gets more.... infact last night, the difference was 4 1/2 minutes.... Average minutes by Gorges > bouillion is something that has been true since january last season.

And has been pointed out... Gorges played more PK time than anyone.

Josh Gorges is a beast.

They did an excellent job. I watched them at La Cage aux Sports near the Bell Centre.

Nicely done.

Aside from one degagemnet rate and that puck over the glass, I thought he was awesome, particularly towards the end, diving for pucks, reaching past everyone, keeping it in Minny's zone just when you thought it was coming back out. Did anyone catch that shot they had when the camera was on his before a faceoff. It was about 5-6 seconds. His expression was determination/pissed-offness personified.

Sorry, I thought you just listed the heroes from last night.

Of course, O'B had killed some in earlier games. Also Tanguay had too.

But again, I thought it was appreciation for specifically last night's unbelievable effort.

Well last night spurred the appreciation thread... but like most appreciation threads.. .we appreciate all the good work.

I meant to only put last nights guys... but again i did it off the top of my head instead of looking up their actual minutes.... since i've seen Sergei and Tanguay on those units before i included them... and I got confused between O'B and Bouillion.....

If the NHL institutes a "Shot Block Limit" rule, we're ****ed.

The best player on the pk was carey price. He gave nothing to the wild and really made it look easy. Not to take any of the credit away from the players because killing 3 pk is a remarkable achievement but usually goalies are suppose to be the difference makers on a 5 on 3 and they are usually force to make one or two incredible saves. The puck just seem to get to price every time and did not even have to be spectacular to stop them.
