Not one of his best games, but he played solid and didn't hurt the team in anyway.

Thomas Vanek is a ridiculous hockey player.
I would be satisfied with lines that look something like:

Tanguay-Koivu-D'agostini
Higgins-Plekanec-Akost
Latendresse-Lang-Kovalev

Skost in the press box.

That's more realistic from Carbo, although Akost on the RW is still a stretch.

Maybe this is what the 2008-09 Habs will end up being. A team that will win by playing basic hockey with great goaltending to close the door and not the spectacular fireworks of a year ago.

It was a solid 60 minute effort, but the fact of the matter is this team has to come out and put together AT LEAST 3, if not 4, good 60 minute efforts in a row now.

I just hope Carbo doesn't lose patience in the AKosty on the point expirement. He was ripping bullets on that 5 on 3, that's what the PP needs. Give it AT LEAST 5 games. The PP can't get worse anyway.

Great game by Baldy, showed (like every game he isnt on Kovalev line) again he's ready for a more important role, needs to be THE man on his line.

no more A. Kostytsin with Kovalev please.

I like Muller and Jarvis, but the habs need some assistant coaches:
-who are Xs and Os guys
-who have played as defencemen
-who have played offense current habs style (Muller was all effort and ugly goals).
Effort guys are great, but they bring the same thing Carbonneau does. He needs some variety behind the bench. They should trade assistant coaches with a team looking to get forwards to play defence.
Hmm...Denis Savard could be a good assistant maybe he could teach Latendresse his spin-o-rama?

Adjust your glasses, he saw many of his shot blocked, most would have went IN the net fairly easily.

He did miss the net a couple of times. But you have to give credit to Rivet and Lydman. They put their lives on the line and blocked a few of A.Kost's shots.

Sure it can. It's 23rd. It's going to be dead last if this keeps up.

Something has to be done. I don't know what that is but we can't keep going like this on the PP. The game needed to be put away on that 5 on 3.

How do you go from the best PP in the league to one of the worst? Mark Streit is the only factor? I don't think so.

I'm expecting nothing more than one PP... it's Carbo after all.

True, but besides setting up Markov's goal and the last 30 seconds. He was pretty quiet and did his job. Nothing spectacular.

Tanguay-Koivu-Kostitsyn sounds sick.

Sergei with way too many brutal penalties...can't wait to hear Erika go on about how he plays with so much intensity and is fiesty.

Easy. First wave: Lang off, Kostitsyn in.

---------------------------(Net)
Tanguay/Higgins-------Latendresse--------Saku


------------------Markov-------------AKost

Second wave:

--------------------------(Net)
Higgins-----------D'agostini/Plekanec---------Kovalev

------------Hammer------------------Akost/Breezy

I like many wanted him to play on the Point and I think he should continue. Lydman blocked 3 shots at least so Akosty did not miss the nets. However, good shooters like streit and souray find a way to get it that the net. He will get better with time, the potential and talent is there

Come on C, put away your Carbo hate for the night. You have to give him some credit for the way the guys came out and played a solid game tonight.

You won't, she hibernates when Sergei plays badly.

It started in the Boston series last year, so it's clearly not just because of Streit missing. The league has figured it out. Now they need to come up with something new. Point shots and traffic in front of the net seems like the best solution right now. Nothing complicated.

Gotta wonder if Sergei will be in the pressbox next game. Inexcusable how disciplined he was tonight.

Did you see his beautiful pass to Markov for the winner

BTW... putting Komi behind the bench was a brilliant move of Carbo's... Komi is inspirational

I like the way Bouillon has been playing for the last few games. I know he made a few mistakes, but he's been keeping things simple, putting pucks at the net, and playing with a lot of energy.

I don't "Hate" Carbo. Dislike is a better term. I will give him the credit about the wake-up call, the Akost on the point experiment.

It's just that it took freaking ages to happen, so I'm not expecting a sudden chance in philosophy from him. I'm hope for this team that I'm wrong.

+Hamrlik was excellent now that he's no longer paired with O'byrne

+Brisebois played his best game of the season.

+Dandenault was pretty good in the defensive zone...not so much when playing on the point though.

+Lapierre was good.

+Price was solid.

+A. Kost was excellent..(I didn't like his play on the 5 on 3 though)

-The PP is atrocious.
-Higgins was pretty much invisible in the offensive zone.
-Sergei with 3 selfish penalties.
