Habs played well. However, Rangers played against the Penguins last night so I guess they were tired.

Great performance all around!

I think the carbo bashers should eat some crow tonite. This team looked very well organized and played motivated from the opening puck drop.

Oh yeah. Why was Gomez being such a punk tonite? I don't know if I've seen that from him before.
As if that would ever happen, they're like addicts refusing to admit their problem.

The coach deserves credit for the team's recent turnaround too - he's got Dandenault in there actually playing good minutes, he got Steve Begin & Mad Max to suddenly become hockey players again, he deserves credit for Tom K on line 2 and he put together the top line.

For finally putting Andrei Kostitsyn with Koivu - thanks Carbo!! It could've been 10-2 tonight if King Henrik wasn't so good.

Agreed and it's funny, it's like they've all disappeared. I wonder why.

Not a chance the 4th line is broken up right now.

The give and go, and give and go again between Koivu and A Kosts was sweet. I wish they scored there.

Imagine if Komi is behind the bench against Boston. He'll be yapping away at Lucic. The Bruin fans will be angry because we'll have to explain Komi is too important as a coach to get into a fight

I gave him credit. Putting Komisarek behind the bench was a stroke of genius. Now by virtue of Komisarek seeing what Muller, Carbonneau and Jarvis have to do on a regular basis, him and the rest of the team have a new respect for the jobs that the coaching staff do, which has got them buying into the system and playing their game again.

He may really like his brother and all, but in the end I am sure his own career and producing as much as he can is his #1 priority.

the last night game thing might have been an excuse 20 yrs ago but not anymore imo.. they're all pros.

we all saw how Boston was tired the times they played us on their 2nd night.

I think Dandy had a very good game! He made a few really good pinches to keep the puck in the zone and made quite a few nice passes.

It's been a while since I've seen such a solid effort.

You know what, if I was playing hockey and my brother got sat down because he was playing bad I would tell him. Play better or you'll be sitting, so stop your whining you baby. Actually I would be cussing him out for making my name look bad.

As a loyal HF poster, I must highlight my fears that arise from tonight's game.

To begin with, and based purely on the stats from tonight, it would appear that the Habs will be ALLOWING OVER 100 MORE GOALS AGAINST this year on well over ONE THOUSAND SHOTS. Think about that. 1000+ shots against, each one of which probably resulting from two errors or slipups made, that's over TWO THOUSAND mistakes we will be making.

There is NO WAY the Habs will win the Cup making thousands of errors, just no way. We must demand changes AT ONCE.

Players who commit giveaways must be SAT OUT! Same with the guys who waste precious scoring chances by allowing their shots to hit the opposing goaltender. If the press box must be expanded, so be it. Max Lapierre, Matt d'Agostini, Robert Lang, Alex Tanguay, Steve Begin and Andrei Kostitstyn all messed up at least one scoring opportunity tonight. NOT ACCEPTABLE!

The team's far from perfect performance is perfectly understandable, however, when we understand that the disaster starts with poor leadership from the captain. If this pace continues, Saku will not score another point for the balance of the season. He should be traded quickly before the other teams catch on! Ryan White can do the job cheaper, and I bet he could score at least one point if we called him up for good.

And what's with the penalties? Every single game, this undisciplined bunch commits fouls. Please stop that!

To sum up in a nutshell: tonight's game exposed many, many weaknesses, and I am quite worried the non-losing streak will eventually be broken.

True.

They seemed very close and all and people (french media) were saying that if Carbo decides to send Sergei down, Andrei will get mad and blabla but seriously, i dont think Andrei will care much. The two brothers didnt even take the same road to get to the nhl.

Anyone got links to the Rangers interviews? I heard Lundqvist had some not so nice things to say about his team and I want to watch them

I can't say I blame him. He almost deserved a star I felt the Habs could of made it 10-2 if not for him.

Total domination by the Habs. I like.
I hope Lats and Sergei took notes on how D'agostini plays, especially Lats cause he has been floating for a year and a half.

Unbelievable. Please don't go there...

Even if what you say may be true, it's not the time to say this.

A good effort by everyone + a tired Rangers team might be more accurate reasons why we won...just a thought.
