Everything is said about the refs. After this many years, it ain't going change especially against the Canes.

As for the team. Again a mix bag of effort and hard work.

Lapierre and Begin played well. Lappy penalty definitely stupid though.

Laraque is all but useless most of the time. If the game started in down low in the offensive, he'd be useful.

Tanguay has this knack of being invisible and put up points. He kinda floats around, then bang makes a nice play on goal.

Skost, kovy, and Pleks were amongst the quiet and ineffective Canadiens. Had a few moments but other than that, not what you want out of a top line. Frankly, even with the goals by Kovy, its not enough possession nor chances of a top line.

Montreals D was backing up all night. They were just giving the blue line away and allowing one on one shots at Price from the slot. Completely unacceptable.

Price. Good but shaky at times. His D definitely didn't help him out.

Well, at least we're rid of them for the year, it seems doubtful they'll make the playoffs...
Canes won post lockout year.....everything was ****ed up that year.
Didn't they win the Cup and then not make the playoffs the following year? How sad is that.

Besides the ref pulling a bag over there heads, everyone here fails to mention that it wasnt exactly a good game either.

Granted we got 0 breaks, but the first period was terrible, and our offence was lacking throughout most of the game.

Our D to forward transition was terrible, no real forecheck, we didnt test Ward all that much and no speed in the neutral zone. We should have put it to them especially since the team has 5 days off.

Before the refs, i blame the team for once again not setting any sort of tempo at home and lack of any intesity.

I sure enjoyed it when he fell on the ice in the 3rd. He has a Spezzaesque grin (also known as the McGrin) that makes me want to punch his chicklets out really bad.

I thought it was because Ward touched the puck with his stick .
Are you saying it was because of another reason ?

I like Tanguay and if you've seen, I've said he should be signed before Kovalev. I just don't think he was that good tonight. I think he disappeared for most of it but was around for when it counted (D'Ago and Lang's goals). That's all. Again, I want him on the Habs next year.

I hope Eric Staal gets an STD after sleeping with a Montreal girl. He probably will escape it though diving over the girl.

Lapierre and Begin played well. Lappy penalty definitely stupid though.

Laraque is all but useless most of the time. If the game started in down low in the offensive, he'd be useful.

Tanguay has this knack of being invisible and put up points. He kinda floats around, then bang makes a nice play on goal.

Skost, kovy, and Pleks were amongst the quiet and ineffective Canadiens. Had a few moments but other than that, not what you want out of a top line. Frankly, even with the goals by Kovy, its not enough possession nor chances of a top line.

Montreals D was backing up all night. They were just giving the blue line away and allowing one on one shots at Price from the slot. Completely unacceptable.

Price. Good but shaky at times. His D definitely didn't help him out.
That's the player he is. He is much more clever than anyone could think he is. We can't expect him to be an Ovechkin or a Kovalev, he's a different type of player. He kinda works more in the shadow, but he's very effective. He's almost always getting out the corners with the puck and his passing abilities make the opponents nervous. He's the type of player that is not very spectacular, but will always get the job done. Always one of the first ones to back in the defensive zone and helps his defensemen a lot.

5 points in the last 3 games. He's back on the right track. I want him with this team for a while. You just can put him anywhere and he'll get the job done. I also loved him on the PK.

You're right. Just heard the explanation from Carbo. Seems that Ward touching it was the reason for the whistle. So question is this? Don't understand why Dubé says it's the right call and doesn't say it wasn't when Price did touch it as well.....

Tanguay is a perimeter player, no surprise there....but he came as advertised, a playmaker who can chip in and score. As long as he is kept with non-perimeter guys (which is hard to find on the Habs roster) he's an excellent asset.

It's not hard to see why he didn't fit in Calgary.

The refs did the right thing with blowing the whistle when they lose sight, but it speaks to their positioning when making the calls since they messed up multiple times.

I dont understand his rationale for ward having possession. How could that constitute having possession of the puck?

That's why I like him with Dagger. He also would be effective with guys like Higgins and Latendresse.

As for the game itself, well everybody, let's remember Koivu, Andrei Kostitsyn and Higgins are missing. However, we found a way to get 5 points in the last 3 games (on a possibility of 6). It's great, we're gotta be all right. I love my Habs. We're one or two changes away of being even better. Add in a good passing D-Man and we're set for a good playoffs run.

But then see I don't see it. He fitted perfectly with Calgary since they had non-perimeter guys all-around him unless he was playing with Huselius....So depending on the team we're going to have in place, the guy can or can't be part of this team. We need non-perimeter players to play with him. Tanguay and Plekanec will never work. That's not soft....that's Cottonnelle soft....

Well at least we got a point, and we don't have to play them ever again (this season). Youd think that with two fast skating teams, canes habs games would be more entertaining but they're not. They always seem to be a boring trap affair.

But that's exactly it. Refs should indeed whistle when they lose sight....but you shouldn't lose sight of something as obvious as this play, should not happen, it's not like it was under 10 players....

I don't understand the Ward's possession either, totally don't....
