Pleks played a great game so I'm glad he got the insurance goal. The guys worked hard. I like our forwards but our D is this team's biggest problem. Too slow, not talented enough, not tough enough. I can't wait for PK to get on this blueline.
With Markov, PK, and one other quality top 4 D-man that would leave us with only 3 of OB, Gorges, Gill, Hamr & Spacek. Two of those guys have to be off this team next year.
Moore is really starting to look good in a Habs uniform, does all the little things right. The Gomez line looks amazing, Pouliot just seems to clog up passing routes with his long reach causing giveaways and scoring chances. Great win.
My "french" took over for a moment and I thought "C'est qui qui goal demain?" but wrote "Who's goaling tomorrow"
Glad you used "french" there, because you won't find the word "goal" anywhere in a French dictionary. As a hockey fan who spent his entire grade school in French immersion, I've never understood how "goaler" somehow comes from "gardien du but".
Halak was just AMAZING tonight! My God, just a gem he was! And those two goals he surrendered -- he had NO CHANCE on those!
Seriously ... terrible. 25 shots on the little faker tonight. And of those 25, I counted 7 from BETWEEN THE RED AND BLUE LINES, and another 9-10 from just past the blue on the boards. So that leaves about 8 shots you could say were actually in any way dangerous.
The Kings had NO PRESSURE put on the little faker tonight. Of course, Halak gets the win, and Price, despite his SCINTILLATING performance in San Jose, gets JACK-SQUAT.
Is there something wrong with this picture???????????
