Losing two in a row, and Habs are up against Phoenix and then the Isles twice, two teams they've owned more often than not.

Picard has been very solid for us ever since he's been put with Subban, great game by the whole team and awesome to see Carey get the shutout

Great win by the team!

Nice to see a game were neither the goalie nor the skaters have to save one another's ass.

Oh and Kostitsyn is a machine. Second in ice time amongst Habs forwards tonight, even with no PK time. Martin is seeing the light

I... agree. I've been critical of Picard but he's actually getting better. I'm no O'Byrne hater but I think I'd rather have Picard in the lineup as a 7th D when Markov comes back. He's versatile and was surprisingly physical tonight. People forget he's actually younger than O'Byrne, he can and will probably get better.

Yeah, and the Devils looked weak before they went up against the Habs.

Habs are to the Isles what the Devils are to the Habs.

great game by Picard, was solid defensively and laid out some nice hits...

I know how good Subban can be offensively, but he's also showing that he could be just as good defensively, I think he'll be a much more complete defensman than people think.

I really hope we see Subban and Markov at even strength

The Habs won't have to worry about the Sens this seasom I see that team falling back. They looked dismal.

NooooooOOooo!!!

Only on the PP. We have to use them on two lines, giving those lines a better transition, rather than just one.

Not sure Markov-Subban will work on the PP...Markov excels on the left point passing to a left handed dman on the opposite side. With Subban being a righty, not sure it's going to work out.

Any video on the Eller hit ? Man that guy steam rolled someone.

Picard was the most physical I've seen him.

Fisher was a bit chippy.

Ruutu is a *****. Good on Halppy.

My boy Pools scored. Great game to be at the bell centre, I mean Scotiabank place.

Look at Subban play on the right side on the PP, he's natural no matter who plays on the left side. They'll have no problem adapting, the PP will become more dynamic this way.

People preclude we need a left-handed shot, when we never had a right-handed shot who was a natural on that side and had this level of talent.

What often happens with a LD/RD PP pairing is that the two players will switch for a very short while in order to get a top-side of the zone shot that has the right angle on goal on a one-timer (which is the reason why a LD/LD or RD/RD is more effective as both the angle of pass and angle of shot are optimal.

Thing is, it can be effective with a LD/RD, even if they don't switch-up sides, and the key to that is timing and movement. Both Markov and Subban can make one-touch passes to each other pretty quickly and both have very good puck control. The key will be using this to move the defensive box to get a good shot.

IMO, they'll become pretty deadly.

Great road game and great way to show character by responding that way. Couldn't care if the Sens played a good game or not, we didn't let them.

I still believe Pyatt has no business with Gomez and Gio and that Pouliot deserve to go back there. Pyatt will work his butt off but your job on those types of lines is to convert. He won't. Boyd was an healthy scratch so I guess he's the next in line with Gomez...

I'm personnally done with the Eller experiment at the wing. This kid is a centerman period. Enough with the improvisation la Spacek on his wrong side. If you want Eller on the 4th and not on the 3, so be it. But he's a centerman.

So next try with Gomez might be Lappy...why not? Or a bold move....you put Eller with Gionta and Lapierre on the 2nd line and Gomez on the 3rd so he'd try something else.

if I was Martin and I wanted to be bold, I would do something like:

Pouliot - Plekanec - AK46

Pyatt - Gomez - Gionta

Cammy - Eller - Moen

Moen - Halpern - Lapierre

Somewhat off topic, but pretty cool that both Price AND Halak got shutouts tonight.

Eller looks better at Center than on the wing IMO, but he can't be on the same line as Darche/Moen. There were a few times where Darche could have made a play to Eller, but blindly fired it away. I was impressed by his big hit, and the way he took the puck to net on a rush. Let's hope he stays at center.

I don't think Cammy should be taken off the Pleks/Ak line, but have Pleks and AK ever developed a chemistry this year. I think Cammy just needs to adjust to the intensity level these guys are playing at. We know Cammy will deliver.

Good overall win by the Habs.

-Price with the shutout, that's got to help his confidence
-Kostitsyn and Pouliot scoring, that's a good sign for us
-P.K. played great, it looks like he's found his comfort level
-Eller looked a lot more involved, he should definitely keep playing center
-Good to see Montreal cutting down on SOG and quality scoring chances
-The Sens looked really bad, something isn't right with them
-The Gomez line looked OK, but they need to actually start finishing, or Martin may need to consider breaking that line up.

feels good bro


Watching that second AK goal on express just now, I love how he read that play. he passed, left the zone and circled back in like a shark to pick up that tip in rebound. The kid is on!
