Kostopoulos' penalty was the killer tonight. We're playing the second half of a back-to-back, on the road, after a tough loss in Columbus where we didn't play well, and we needed a good start. Instead we found ourselves killing a 5-minute powerplay off the hop and we were left playing catch up the rest of the way.

We played brutal in two straight games but now we have a couple of days rest, play back at home on Tuesday, and can try to get into the rhythm of a non-ridiculous schedule. Even though we've rarely played a full 60 minutes all year, we're still 8-2-1, so let's not lose sight of the big picture.

Count me in with those that want another top 4 defenceman, tonight proved that.
it is not a question of 4th dman, the habs play a passif game in their zone. This has been the case since Julien. They have to put more pressure on the player that has possession of teh puck once he is in their zone

I can't wait to see the battle of the light weights, Sergei vs Grabovski...

I don't think Grabs has the stones for it, though, the little weasel...

How many times did he lose the puck at the half boards? Wasn't he supposed to be a "power" forward? He's softer than marshmallows.

The Kostitsyn's have beef with him going back to Belarus.

They just answered your question on Coach's Corner.

Unbelievable, I never saw that in the game. What a punk. I don't miss him at all and I don't care how many points he puts up.

The only thing I can think of is that Grabs said or did something to make the group angry. I'm pretty sure there wasn't any real animosity before tonight between Grabs and the Habs.

Edit: ^^^^Yep, there it is.

I want anything that keeps Breezy out of the line-up.

Aside from the opener vs. the Leafs can we remember a time where the Habs actually played a full 60 minute game? Or close to it?

My favorite parts of the game... when Kostopoulos obliterated Van Ryn and when S.Kost tried to murder Grabovski. Somebody's going to break his ****ing neck.

Brutal game. Schooled by the Leafs in every aspect. Habs really need to address the D. This Brisebois and O'Byrne experiment is headed nowhere. Kostopoulis deserves special mention for screwing the team at the start of the game.

Holy cow!!!!!!!!. Cherry just showed the clip of Grabovski butt ending Price in the nuts with his stick. In retrospect, I don't think S. Kostitsyn hit the little ****** hard enough at the end of the game.

Dives?

You mean Kostitsyn tripping Schenn into the boards?

Whatever..
