Agreed, that line has been very good.

we average 1.38 ppg (58 points, 42 games), Washington, 1.29 (57 points, 44 games).

I started listening to the game in third period while they were announcing the 2nd penalty to the Caps for that 5-on-3 with the Habs trailing 2-1. Sounds like if I had joined earlier the score for both teams would have been in double digits!

Wash has 57 points in 43 games, MTL has 56 points in 41. I would recheck your calculations.

3-4 weeks ago, D'Agostini was the king of the town and people were all hot and crazy over him. People were proclaiming him our best winger and a guy who should be given an appartment, pronto. Today, that looks foolish as clearly he has hit a wall, the league has figured they need to cover him a bit more and obviously, not having Koivu hurts him.

Let's just not do the same with Pacioretty for now, that's all. Let's see if he can keep this up...

Capitals: 57 points in 43 games.
Habs: 56 points in 41 games.

1 point less, in 2 fewer games. Habs have a better PPG.

Oops. I was looking at the un-updated TSN standings.

Caps have 57 pts in 43 games (57 of a possible 86 pts, so .663)
Habs have 56 pts in 41 games (56 of a possible 82 pts, so .683)

The gaps in pts in the NE division is hilarious:

Boston - 66pts

10pt gap

Montreal - 56pts

9pt gap

Buffalo - 47pts

9pt gap

Toronto - 38pts

6pt gap

Ottawa - 32pts

Its so tight!!!

Hopefully we start inching closer and closer to those Bruins.

My post was kind of overkill but I left the room when I started typing then came back.

Nobody is talking about Komisarek's work on Ovechkin... He did a great job not allowing Ovy to take good shots on the net and he was in his face all night long, pushing him and htting him...!

I just noticed the Bruins have 10 games left against NJ, PHI and WSH. They have not even played Philly yet!

We have only 4 left against those teams.

That 6 game difference is very important, along with beating the Bruins in our head-to-head games.

Wow just a little streak of finally burying the puck, and the habs are now on pace for 264 goals which is exactly what we had last year.

Wait a second! You people are proposing that Montreal should get rid of Tanguay? He's been playing excellent for Montreal.

Probable lineup when Montreal is repaired:

Tanguay - Koivu - Higgins
Pacioretty - Plekanec - Kovalev
S. Kostitsyn - Lang - A. Kostitsyn
Latendresse - Lapierre - Kostopoulos
Begin, Laraque

With Dandenault as a healthy scratch for Montreal's defence.

Price
Halak

Boston will be the last game I catch before heading to asia for a month on vacation. I'll miss hockey, but I think i can wake up at 6am for the good games and watch them on rds.ca
