Halak in SO reminds me of Huet....Price is much much better with 1 on 1's

Holy Overreaction Batman.

I have no confidence in Marc Denis no matter what his AHL stats say... Have you seen him the last two years in the NHL.

He's not an NHL backup.

Man oh man, I was forced to watch this game on the Columbus station cause my dish is down and geez, the biggest HOMER commentators I've ever heard. How many "OH BABY, BABY THIS" do I have to hear. Like to drunk old men watching the game...really had to put it on mute cause they were making me sick.

Game was really slow pace, what can you expect being off for such a long time. Happy with the point, I would have considered putting in Price for the shootout, Halak is just too small for shootouts...

Nice to see little **** get one...

Markov's worst game of the season and by far..

Koivu didnt look very energic tonight..

Halak was shaky all the night long..

The first 3 lines didnt click..

A game to forget.. Leafs next..

I would have put Sergei in the shootout, Carbo did that several times by putting a guy in a slump to boost his confidence, espescially when youre slumping player scored the equalizer. Just saying..

Halak, for sure, wasn't great tonight.. but he made a few nice saves at key times (2 on 1 late in the 3rd, slot shot in OT)..

He still hasn't lost in regulation.. so I see no reason to really bash him yet. When you're backup is 2-0-1 to start the season.. you should be pretty happy.

Weak game by Halak. Looks like he has no confidence and is playing way to deep especially for his size.

Koivu should ALWAYS be the first shooter in the SO followed by Kovalev and Tanguay.

Putting in a cold goalie for the shootout has been done 4 times in the NHL.

The cold goalie has made 0 saves in those 4 shootouts....

For the first game in like 6 days, we could have played a lot worse.

One thing though, Halak has already been crowned a starting goalie by so many people, he's gotta a bit of a ways to go.

Let's just kick some arse tomorrow.

Not to overreact to a loss, but this team needs to wake up.

They have an awesome record and the talent is there but they sleep walk through large portions of the game and always play down to their opponent.

They had better come out guns a-blazin' tomorrow against the Leafs.

Wow, so many people complaining about Halak. Can most of you be any more *****y? I don't think so.

I'd like to know what's André Constantin record in shootout.

He skates fast and then shoots on the blade of the goalie stick... nice pattern.

We didn't lose the game. We lost the stupid gimmick. The game ends after 65 minutes: after that, they might as well flip a coin.

All-in-all, I thought Columbus played a pretty good game and contained the offense fairly well. I'd attribute the loss moreso to Columbus playing well than Montreal playing badly.

Though the second goal was pretty weak...

Man, i really tried to like Halak from the first time he played, i know he was a star in the AHL but... i just don't like him at all in the NHL, he's giving way too much easy goal and he's not improving at all... That was an easy win if we had Price... Nvm, i just hope the Halak experiment is over, lets send him down to Hamilton for him to rebuild his confidence and work on his weakness and bring back Denis ASAP !

I think right now he's not helping us and we are not helping him by using him in the NHL, he's not ready.
