well its nice to have a win like this.

Tight road win off a team who was desperate for wins after their coach called them out a few days ago.

But i do hate the Carbo "dump" method with the lead. So annoying.

Interesting to see Sergei being used in key defensive situations in the third period. I guess he's out of the dog house, for now...

Hopefully Chipchura plays tomorrow. Maxwell isn't ready.

A. Kostitsyn was just a pure goal scorer out there tonight.

Hated the game by the team tonight.

KPK line was the only one that was rolling offensively. The bottom three trios need work.

Price did what a goalie needs to do when his team is having an off night.

Did anyone see the facepalm Carbo did after that penalty in the third? Perfect for an image macro.

Price is not Jesus, Price is God.

Akost doing what he does best, shoot.

happy for the win (especially with akost getting a hat trick). Rest of the credit goes to price.

Carbo helped the KPK line out tonight, taking them off the ice whenever Crosby and Malkin were on. Sometimes even in midshift, which made for some awkward line changes. The Lang and Lapierre lines had the tough assignments.

Kostitsyn and Price were beasts tonight. Also, great job by the defensive unit and guys like Begin to hold the fort.

sluggish game for the habs, but I kinda expected that with the week long break. This reminded me of the 01/02 habs where they would somehow find a way to get the lead and leave it to theodore to stand on his head and get the 2 points.

I know price is getting alot of props tonight, but has he been any different this season? He's incredible.

Lappy and Lats played pretty good I thought. Kosto struggled.

Well I guess we don't need an all star vote we can have Fleury vs Osgood

Boring game, but nice win on the road after a long lay off.

Chipchura needs to play over Maxwell, the kid can't do anything out there, send him to the gym.

not really. They scored on the few chances they got but they didn't do much for maintaining puck possession in the offensive zone nor did they create many offensive chances. Kovalev was a complete non factor.

The third and fourth lines were the ones who were able to hold offensive zone pressure for any sustained time.

Whoever said Sergei would be better then Andrei should definitely go rethink their shtuff... I see a rising star in AKost, and let's hope he keeps doing all the right things.

I have nothing against Skost, but I see Akost as the better of them two also.

23 vs 21 years old is a huge difference.

I have a stupid question. Do all teams dump the puck when they are making changes? Is there some kind of low risk way to have one player hold onto the puck while the others change? It just seems like Montreal gives away control of the puck way too often.

Maybe it just seems like a lot because the Habs dump-in and "dump pass" (pass to a general area, not to a specific player) quite a lot anyway. If the Habs cut down on giving away control, maybe...just maybe... they wouldn't be outshot so often.

I thought I saw little brother desert his position to skate after a Pen who was already being covered by Hamrlik. At least his lapse wasn't costly. And what will infraKost do in the next 2 years to reach the level of supraKost?

I agree with you about Maxwell's not being ready. He didn't do anything worthwhile.

Come on boys lets get voting for Pricey, he deserves to be there instead of MAF. He was dynamite tonight.

Price is so much better than Fleury, an underachieving overpaid middling bust if there ever was one. Like Lehtonen, but with a $35m contract lol

This 1-4 trap is driving me nuts. The only reason we did not blow the lead was Price was great in the 3rd. Pittsburgh can't handle our forwards on the forecheck so why back off the forecheck and allow them free access to the red line.

Carbo is stuck in the 90's, the team is winning DESPITE his ancient strategies.

The 1-4 trap as you call it is being played by all NHL teams with the lead in the 3rd. In fact, some teams even play the 0-5. It's just that some seem better than ours in applying it.
