Habs PP's this year: 120 (30th in the NHL)

Guys I think we need to go back to the main reasons why Montreal is getting shortchanged onthe PP/PK ratio.

Physical strength (and lack of it).

This isn't a conspiracy, it's a real problem the team has.

I'd like to count how many times a Hab was on the seat of his pants tonight.

tough problem to overcome.

Yes points mean everything,if the players finnish his passes tonight Gomez probably has 6-7 points.Gomez in the past 3 games has been playing his best hockey of the season but people are just never happy

Clouston is a whiny coach though, he whined to the media about the PP-PK ratio and guess what, you guys had no PK's. No way in hell that's possible.

Indeed the Sens are around 24th (after tonight's game) in PP opportunities with 141...Habs are 30th with only 120.

The pain you feel is worse here.

It's not rare for the Sens. TWICE we haven't had a single PP in a game, and TWICE we had one PP in a game.

In a game we shoulda won after the first, the Habs managed to stop putting in the efforts and hoping to reach overtime, as usual. Please please guys, quit blaming the refs, this is getting ********.
at 3-2 they went into a 1-4 trap and stood everything up at the blue line which was one of the reasons i was surprised they didn't get a single interference call. they didn't allow us to gain the zone and get the cycle going or else we would've done to them what we had accomplsihed in the 1st 30 minutes

I can agree in parts, but there was several times tonight we got tripping calls that seemed a little questionable (as in perhaps some Diving).

Not to mention Fisher physically hauling down a player on the boards in the dying minute (who didn't even have the puck, yet was in reach of it). That's interference to the book.

I don't like it, but whatever... We've won games we shouldn't have.

Sens would have definitely had penalties called against them had the Habs played the last 40 like they did the 1st 20.

Didn't know that the PP goals didn't count as much as the ES goals.

We're #1 on the PP, but last in terms of PP given. On top of that, we have the most times short handed in the league.

Saying its frustrating is an understatement.

The 4th line was okay, but overplayed. The 3rd line was atrocious. Gomez started strong and ended poorly. Gionta was buzzing, but you could tell he'd missed a lot of time. Cammalleri started strong and died off. Kostitsyn was medicore outside of the first period. Plekanec was okay. Pouliot was incredible.

Markov was great. Spacek was a big pile of meh. O'Byrne was bad. Bergeron was worse. Gill was nearly as bad as the last two. Gorges was pretty decent.

Halak was decent. The first two goals were deflections, but the last one looked a little weak.

JM receives a big fat Z-rating. Terrible coaching system.
I strongly agree with all of this... except the coaching system, as it pertains to this game.

Why are people blaming this lost on the coaching system?

JM allowed the top 2 lines to wheel and deal a bit more... and they just didn't do enough in the 2nd and 3rd periods.


The main reason we lost was that we didn't get to use our PowerPlay at all the entire game. That kind of hurts a lot when you have the best PP in the league...

i have watched the entire season. i didnt formulate my opinion from 30 minutes tonight.

and miss what chances? did we really have some in the 3rd? maybe it was just one of those nights that the puck bounces over your stick because they couldnt even carry the puck out of their zone at times.

even the defensive zone was weak. there was absolutley zero pressure on obyrne when he passed the puck to MAB who missed it and it leads to a turnover and sens goal. so many missed passes trying to leave our zone.

Sorry! I was talking about games without power plays. If you look you'll see the Sens lead in that category.

Still, it's hard to say to there's a huge rivalry between my Sens and the Habs. The Habs are totally my third favourite team.... my second favourite team is always going to be whomever is playing the Leafs that day.

That first goal by Ottawa due to a clean faceoff win against Pleky would was 2-11 on faceoffs at one point of the game. I am not sure what his final faceoff stats were tonight.

Very dissapointed that we couldn't beat an Ottawa team with so many injuries that wanted it more than we did after 20 minutes.

I will keep saying this but JM's system does NOT work in the new NHL.

YOu must pressure the puck... not passively wait to get beat!!!!!!

He's actually not a whiny coach at all. He was asked a question by our idiot media here in Ottawa and he answered it. Also, he talked about it once, and that was it. He actually has a reputation of being a quiet coach during a game.

The real question you should be talking about is not about the reffing, but how on earth you guys lost to a team that is missing the whole 1st line due to injuries.

Thats our system, score 2 and sit back and watch the opponent come back. **** i hate JM. Every penalty we took was deserved. Oh and where are the Halak chest pounders tonight ? Just curious. Should have traded him last week when he was hot oh well, maybe tomorrow.
