Somebody should tell Pouliot to stop passing the puck so damn much. At one point he got passed a Ranger D having himself a clear path to the net only to pass it backwards. Id like to see him hold on the puck more, he would open the play even more and give himself some opportunities to unleash his big shot.
A perfect road game from the Habs. They did not allow the Rangers to get any quality scoring chances and deserved better on the scoreboard.
They are getting healthy at the right time and have shown that with a healthy lineup, especially with Markov in it, the Habs have a very good team. And Moore seems to have really stabilized the bottom-six with his play and deserves to be re-signed. His play with Kosty Jr. and Moen have been outstanding. I think he would appreciate a long-term contract given that he has played for six different teams in the last four seasons.
Shame on you Dave Morissette (RDS) for picking the Rangers to beat the Habs prior to the Game ! You should know better than that...ha ha ha.......I guess they proved you wrong ! You were one of my favorite players here in Fredericton and most likely the toughest man to lace up the skates at the Aitken Center(except MAYBE Jerry Flemming), but when the Habs are as HOT as they have been and were again tonight, stand behind the team man.......PICK A WINNER ! HABS !!!!
What happened with Avery at the end? After Pleks scored the empty netter I wasn't really paying attention.. I thought I heard the MSG announcer say something about slashing and a game misconduct...
Avery two-handed Gomez in the back of the leg (received 5 minutes for slashing) with less than 7 seconds left and then roughed him up. A bit of a brawl as Habs players came to Gomez' defence but no fight. Avery's a tool.

The 4th line played fine. Lapierre and Darche play really well together. Both are big bodies who can forecheck and cycle the puck. With Metro, they had some great shifts in the offensive zone cycling and taking the puck to the net, especially in the 2nd period. Lappy should have had a goal tonight. He missed two great chances.
