Not every win has to be epic. Great D-playing, Halak did what a goalie should and stopped the pucks he needed too. Good top-6 effort.
My only concern was that the panthers were confident enough to pull Vokoun with like 2:15 left, and this was only with a one goal deficit. Coaches probably saw the game last night and knew the Habs wouldn't do **** to stop them. Except, you know, score two empties.
Seriously, this style of play in the third is just pissing me off.
We played the freakin Panthers and almost let them comeback tonight. This is a team that won't make the playoffs and is one of the worst offensive teams in the league!Thankfully Pleks got the EN goal. At least Jack put Pleks with Moen and Sergei to defend the lead.
Halak played a solid game tonight.
Can't beleive we benched Metropolit tonight for Lapierre. Martin's decision make no sense.
Why does he deserve to start? Do you honestly think HE IS MORE DESERVING THAN HALAK?
Don't get me wrong, Price is a great goalie, but can you explain why you think he is MORE deserving than Halak?
Price was much more tested last night and had to do much more in the 3rd to keep the lead, although we know how that ended than what Halak faced. Yes, Halak got the win but his performance was less spectacular than Price's. I won't care if we beat the Devils Saturday with either goalie in net, cause it would be HUGE game to win and clinch our playoff spot. Ride whoever's hot, but as far as I'm concerned it'll be hard for Jacques Martin to decide which goalie starts after the performances they had.
If Dvorak didn't score, I would have kept going on thinking Florida had a new player. When he did score, I thought" Great, another rookie gets his first against us"
Nope, just Benoit and Pierre can't pronounce names. Vorjack ? You ****ed in the head, or something ?
Buffalo outshoots Montréal 42-28 and Montréal gets a point against the best team in the Northeast division. Montréal outshoots Florida, 31-24. Montréal wins, which at one point looked to be turning out the same, and Halak is suddenly superior ?
Nah, nah. This team doesn't play the same in front of Halak as they do in front of Price, which is ********. Though, almost none of you are willing to admit it. Though, no worries. I told a buddy of mine this would happen. Halak would win, and everyone will think he is >>>>>>> Price.
