Yep, identical except he just didn't wait as long as Richards did before turning on the jets.

Exactly what I thought when he started slow, but unlike Richards, he got it done.

10 points behind Boston with a game in hand...

And Ottawa gets further away from Tavares. There's at least one positive to blowing that lead.

Each goal in the 3rd could have been avoided.

1st: Markov and a tired Plekanec trio go all-out on offence with the CASH line out there. Bad idea.

2nd: Komisarek nearly gets his arm destroyed.

3rd: Hamrlik lost his stick, neither Kost brother realized or cared to give him one.

2 points on the road against an energized team that ultimately remains dangerous and is playing really well in front of a rookie goalie on a roll. One post, one crossbar, and their goalie saved them in the second.

Those two points are worth exactly as much as a regulation win. Can't complain. And Boston lost so Montreal gains on them.

Still, bad third. 3 goals on 7 shots in the third. But at some point, losing an entire first line and a star starting goalie has to tell somewhere.

Ottawa with a strong goalie is still a potentially strong team.

Michel Bergeron says that Andrei = Michel Goulet.

I was saying he was = Peter Stastny.

Who knows?

Markov's jersey better be retired after he finishes his NHL hockey career with us.

Lapierre and fatty have been playing some pretty damn good hockey lately. More so Lappy, but tender too.

Hey, Fat Sin! Sounds like a good name.

It is indeed a really fat sin to have such a great 3rd line.

Well their 1st line is still one of the best in the league and Halak is not Carey Price.

I blamed Lang more on this one, he skated right by Hammer, twice I think.

For all those who want to gut the secondary scoring on this team in order to get Vinny, take a look at Ottawa right now. They get dominated for 2 1/2 minutes...look dangerous for a minute...then repeat. The habs played very well and every line looked dangerous. Even the 4th line should have potted a couple.

The call on taking down Lats at the end of the 3rd was deserved I guess but it wasn't close to the trip/hook/slash that Andrei K got on his breakaway earlier with no call. I don't know why the refs are calling all of the ticky-tacky crap away from the play but when a player gets taken down during a great scoring opportunity, they keep the whistles in their pockets.

Either way, good win. With better goaltending and a little more puck-luck this is a 6-2 game in regulation. The score flatters Ottawa's performance.

Get well soon Carey.

Oh yeah, he was closest, but Lang is a righty, so it wouldn't have made much of an impact had he given it to Hammer.

I want Lapierre as a surprise guest for the breakaway challenge at the all-star game.

Echoes of Claude Lemiux in Maxim- hated, clutch, never going to rack up huge regular season points but capable of deciding a game, often by driving the whole other team off theirs.

What's not to like?

Guess you got to expect the unexpected sometimes. What a goal by Lapierre.

I disagree.
I don't think there was a penalty on Andrei breakaway and I think Lats should have got a penalty shot.

Anyway it's not that important now
