Kovalev was invisible for most of the night. During his goal drought he still worked hard, but this night, absolutely invisible. Now its
Plekanec working his ass off but not getting any results.
Tanguay was a ghost, with exception to his assists.
Price wasn't the best but coming back from an injury, I'll cut him some slack. Two fantastic stops in the third to keep us in it.
I really, really miss Koivu, Higgins and Andrei. Man...
I don't think we really have a D problem anymore. Some D have good nights, some have bad nights, and our PP doesn't work because we're trying the same thing we did last year and teams know how to beat it. We need to cook up a completely new strategy.
Maxwell isn't ready, thats a given.
I'm not even going to talk about the referees. They should be given Merry Christmas pink slips and told to go coach a new sport. Okay I'm done.
The Habs were robbed.......
Quick whistles on them to remove Hab goals and when it's the Habs turn to get a quick whistle,,, it's a goal and game over, that's it, that's all, turn out the lights and lets go on vacation, hurry to the Airport and home.
we could have used an early whistle at the end there, lol
If it was Cam Ward, the whistle would have blown about 4 seconds before the puck went in. He's the luckiest f***ing goalie in the league at that, he gets the benefit of the doubt almost every time the puck is near his crease, even when he doesn't have it.
Regardless of all this, the Habs didn't really deserve to win this game. Their effort was worthy of getting a point. This team is still incapable of playing 60 minutes on many nights.
Just came home from work to see the disallowed goal to Latendresse... Also a few quick whistles when Ward was looking for the puck. In the end of the third and even in OT, i saw some Carolina penalites going uncalled while there was a Montreal penalty coming for a one-handed hook...
